—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Cryolator is a Special weapon introduced in the 15.7.0 update. It can be obtained from the Trader's Van.


It appears to be a Sci-Fi themed weapon that's mostly blue and gray.


It has good damage, a medium fire rate, a good capacity, and a fast mobility. It used to be 3 shots with bleeding, but now it's 2 shots because the grade is now Legendary, so it got a damage buff.

  • Use it like any other contact detonator weapons.
  • Take advantage of the Bleeding attribute as it damages players over time.
  • Use it in medium range only as it has looping shots.
  • Like most contact detonator weapons, it is useful for luring area damage Melee spammers into traps.
  • Use this weapon to set traps in small spaces.


  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Strafe around so you don't get hit.
  • Do not go into small spaces where this weapon's projectiles might be rigged.
