—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Cloud Launcher is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.4.0 update. It can be obtained from the Trader's Van.

Description

It is a large grenade launcher that has the ability to shoots proximity mines. It has good damage, a slow fire rate, a decent capacity, and a slow mobility. It is 3 shots.

It features a blue/white body with a white pistol grip, red trigger, a light blue sight on top, and a claw-like front with a magazine mounted in between the claw.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, it will launch a mine that will stick to any object. If touched by an enemy it will explode, dealing damage to the one that triggered it and those around him/her if close enough

When reloading, the user will eject the energy cell at the front and will replace it with a new one.
