—Weapon description in the Gallery
The Dark Mage Wand is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 8.0.0 update.
It is an orange wand that shoots an orange orb. It has good damage, a slow fire rate, average capacity, and average mobility. It is currently 2-3 shots with its new burning effect.
The Dark Mage Wand looks similar to the Wizard Wand but has yellow, orange, and red highlights instead of purple. The top of the handle has red fading into yellow marks, suggesting intense heat.
This wand that shoots a large, orange orb with area damage and instant bullet travel time. It can burn the player, making them temporarily lose extra health. It also allows for the user to rocket jump, but taking damage at the same time.
It uses the single-shot system so it has no reload animation. It has no delay mechanics either.
Formerly, it shoots an orange orb with wall break, no area damage and instant bullet travel time. It also had infinite capacity, large damage and a very large hitbox.
- Keep in mind that this weapon’s projectiles have no travel time.
- Use this weapon to attack enemies from the shadows while they are behind a solid cover.
- Use the weapon to finish off damaged targets.
- If you are an experienced player, rocket jump with the weapon and convert to a 1-2 shot weapon to kill opponents easily.
- Do not attempt to Rocket Jump (PG3D) with this as you will lose a majority amount of health and gives you the burning effect along with it.
- This is negated if you simply jump before firing.
- This is useful in Space Arena when the enemy is about to go on one of the jump pads to escape.
- Don't worry if it does not kill them instantly as the burning effect will finish them off.
- Use area damage weapons to attack the user. And finish them off as they got knocked away by the blast immediately.
- Pick off the user from long ranges.
