The Dragon Whistle is a Throwing gadget introduced in the 11.1.0 update.

Appearance

It is a shining golden dragon head. The horns are cyan blue. The eyes are blood red. It also is shiny. The dragon it summons is similar to the Dragon in Campaign and the Evil Dragon glider, available in Battle Royale and Glider Rush

Performance

Unlike most throwing gadgets, ironically, the player doesn't throw the Dragon Whistle. Instead, when used they would immediately emit a translucent, the bright red dragon flies in a straight line in front of the player, causing damage to whoever and whatever it hits. If it does not kill the player, it gives a burning effect that lasts longer the more you upgrade it.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use it at players that are in one line or somewhere crowded.
  • Its range is horizontal and the length of the dragon's flight despite the actual damage covering that distance instantaneously.
  • It has large area damage below where the dragon flies.
  • Slightly damage the player before sending the dragon allows it to one-shot kill, as a dragon kill gives more points than a headshot.
  • The dragon summoned by this Gadget can travel through walls, so try using it to surprise-attack enemies retreating behind walls off-guard.
  • The dragon sets targets on fire, so if they get hit, they'll begin to take extra damage. It can even kill enemies with the burning effect, and upgrading this gadget makes the burning effect lasts longer.
  • This Gadget has an attribute similar to wall-break, so shooting this down a corridor with multiple enemies can deal damage to all of them.

Counters

  • Pick off its users from ranges the Dragon cannot reach from the ground, such as in the air. Bring a Jetpack or a rocket-jumping weapon with you if needed.
  • Avoid being horizontal with them as much as possible as it is instantaneous and difficult to dodge.
  • Due to the fact that dodging this Dragon is very difficult, it's best to have a good amount of armor as it can do huge damage. However, it isn't enough to one-shot max armored players.
  • Use the Disabler to prevent users from activating this gadget for eight seconds. Use this opportunity to either get away or kill them.
  • Use the Denied! gadget with you in case you're one-shot by the Dragon, using your revival to either escape or attempt to kill the user whom had used the Whistle.
  • The Pyro 1116 can be useful when you are getting hit as it prevents you from being set on fire.
