The Archangel is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 13.5.0 update.

Description

It is a heaven-themed bow that shoots arrows. It has good damage, a high fire rate, low capacity, and low mobility.

Appearance

It is a re-skin of the Tactical Bow.

It has a white/yellow finish with white bowstring and illuminated limbolts. It also features a yellow grip and yellow scope.

The arrow itself has black fletching with a white with tan and black shaft and a light yellowish-white arrowhead.

It is mostly 2 headshots kill to max-armored players.

Performance

The player shoots the arrow at a relatively high attack speed. The arrows, which are ivory and have a white top, have instant bullet travel time. The Archangel is a precision weapon that can deal large amounts of damage. With its optic sight, it can effectively counter snipers.

This weapon is a bow, so it uses the single-shot system, therefore it has no reload animation. It has no delay mechanics either.

Strategy 

Tips

  • It is effective against anyone using a deadly melee or a flamethrower.
  • Be very careful around wall break snipers. If you miss your 1st shot, you will be in great trouble.
  • This is a great counter to the Railgun. Due to the Railgun's high recoil, you can easily punish the user if they misfire, which can be hard to do with other weapons.
    • Its great fire rate also suitable for Sniper Tournament, as it does not need to reload.
  • The weapon is extremely accurate, as the crosshair never changes.
  • Don't hold the fire button when using this weapon, as you won't be able to land a shot. Fire, wait until your crosshair is on the enemy, then shoot again. Otherwise, the reloading animation will mess up your aim. Another possible technique is to just constantly scope.
  • Land headshots or/and target weakened opponents for better arrow conserving.

Counters

  • Get up close, then attack using a deadly close-quarter weapon, preferably Ghost Lantern or Soulstone.
  • Wallbreak Snipers perform better than this weapon in a sniper duel due to the wall break and better scope.
  • Attack the sniper from behind for best results.
  • Automatic fire rate weapons gets the job done.

Equipment Setups

Other high damage or high fire rate weapons to help out with its DPS and for close-range combat. You can also bring a weapon that slows the target such as Death Claws or Dual Cryo Pistols, so you can get a guaranteed hit with the Gadget Block.
