The Cyber Bees Swarm is a Throwing gadget introduced in the 17.5.0 update. It is a projectile used for homing and attacking.

Appearance

It appears to be a bee with a yellow and white body and is white on its front and yellow on its back. It has a pair of red eyes and a pair of wings. It has a pair of antennas and two pairs of legs, too.

Performance

This gadget is good for sudden attacks and escaping from your close to medium ranged enemies. The general performance of this weapon derives from the Bee Swarm Spell. When used, the player will throw the bees, and sometime after the debuting point of the trajectory, the bees will follow the nearest opponent and create area damage at them. The swarm will automatically explode after 29 seconds.

Strategy

Tips

  • Engage in a close-quarter map so that it can perform well.
  • Use this in close to medium/slightly longer range, and try to aim for the nearest player,as the bees have a quite slow travel time.
  • Go for the weakened opponents because they don't strafe as much and can be easily taken off by the bees.
  • It does area damage,so using it against groups of enemies is recommended.
  • Be careful while moving and shooting at the same time, because you can easily walk into the bees and kill yourself.
  • Use this in a map with not much obstacles, such as Coliseum, to prevent enemies from hiding.

Counters

  • Much like you would dodge the Clockwork Nutcracker, you must use a high mobility weapon (At least 85) to outrun the bees, as they do have a timed explosive.
  • Use the Reflector gadget so the user will be killed as well.
  • This weapon can't perform well in long range, due to the fact that it has a projectile travel time, so be sure to engage the user from afar.
    • You can easily defeat the users using snipers. Especially the Prototype or basically any other long ranged weapons.
  • It is recommended to run around a tight corner, as the bees must slow down considerably or explode by wall contact to be able to target you.
  • Use a fast transportation weapon such as the Pulling Sucker Gun to escape the bees.
    • Any weapon with 85+ mobility will prove to be a considerable weapon of use for escaping this gadget.
