The Box of Pandora is a Tools gadget introduced in the 11.1.0 update.

Appearance

It is shaped like a small brown box, with small, detailed engravings carved on each face. It also has a white stone on the center on every side.

Strategy

When used, the box opens, revealing either a yellow or a red light, which determines the fate of the players. Red means your health will go to 2%. Yellow means all enemies take less damage than you take when the red light appears. There is a 50% chance for either outcome.

Tips

  • Use this gadget if you know some of the enemies have low health. Doing little damage to all enemies is not worth it.
  • Use this gadget if you only have 1 health because if you harm yourself it just takes your health down to 1 and doesn't do anything else.
  • It is recommended to use this tool in Campaign, Arena and Co-op Survival, as you can greatly damage and/or kill many mobs, giving you thousands of points, although you still run of the risk of the Box harming you and not your enemies.
  • Do not use the Box of Pandora at the very beginning of the match, as you'll either start as a vulnerable target or not kill too many people since everybody else most likely has full health and armor at that time.

Counters

  • Try at least to have 24 life/armor points in total, since you never know when a user will activate this gadget. Better yet, you should be in max HP and armor to use it.
  • This weapon is luck-based in terms of whether or not it will hurt you or hurt the user, so don't fret too much if you notice someone using it.
  • In the case of if you are hurt, try locating Health and Armor pickups on the battlefield.
  • In the case of the Box of Pandora hurting you, and leaves you at very low health, recover via gadgets like the Medical Station or Medkit.
  • The Disabler will prevent anyone from carrying one from using it for about 8 seconds, which will give you time to kill them before they can use it again.

Theme

Pandora's box themed.

Trivia
