Strategy

Tips

  • This weapon performs well at all ranges. At medium and long-range, using the scope is recommended.
  • Try to use the scope that comes along with it at further ranges as the crosshairs do not fully close when standing still.
  • You could fire a few shots from this weapon to slow down the enemy and then finish them with a sniper.
  • Take advantage of the poison ability, as it an finish off weakened opponents and clog up their screen.
  • Strafe around when using this weapon so other players, especially snipers, cannot hit you.
  • Do not use this weapon the entire duration of a match as it will make a lot of players very angry about spamming this weapon.
  • Aim at the head for maximum DPS.
  • It sports fast reload, pairing it with Cowboy Hat and Storm Trooper Cape (PG3D) to benefit it the most.
  • You can use this as a makeshift sniper rifle.
  • It's recommended to use max Primary booster setup for speeding up the kill rate if using this.
    • However, it still does great without it.

Counters

  • Rocket jump when slowed down so the enemy cannot easily land a second shot on you.
  • Try to snipe the enemy from an unseen place. Engaging in head-to-head combat is not recommended as this weapon is extremely powerful.
  • Counter this with other primary weapons such as the Laser Assistant, Icicle Minigun (PG3D), or even some shotguns such as Undertaker. If all else fails, use Black Mamba yourself.
  • Use Stealth Bracelet so even when slowed down, the enemy will have a hard time hitting you.
  • Area damage weapons can be used to mess up Black Mamba user's aim.
