The Duck Hunter is a Backup weapon introduced in the 16.7.0 update. It can be obtained from the Trader's Van for a limited time.

Appearance

It takes the appearance of a beige video game console, and a red/white light gun connected to the system. The console has a game cartridge inserted in the slot, with black and red buttons on top. The light gun features a red pistol grip with a white body, a red trigger, a grey ejection port, and red iron sights.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this as a backup weapon when your main weapon is out of ammo.
  • Do not use this weapon during the entire length of the match, as you will not have a high chance of winning. Alternatively, use faster-killing weapons.
  • Aim at the head to maximize damage.
  • The fire rate of this weapon is somewhat fast. Use that to your advantage.
  • The weapon has a Gadget Blocker attribute, use it to your advantage as your target won't be able to use any gadgets.
    • This can be useful if the enemy is a frequent gadget user.
  • Use the Burning attribute to deal additional damage to enemies overtime.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage and shotguns make quick work of users.
  • Strafe while jumping to minimize the damage from the weapon, so as to render its users wasting ammo in firing towards you.
  • Like most Backup weapons, being at farther ranges is effective for minimizing the chances of being hit.
  • Flank around the user then use a melee weapon to deal quick damage and then pull back.
  • Avoid its shots, since you will not be able to use Gadgets for a limited amount of time if you get hit.

Trivia

  • The weapon features multiple references to Nintendo:
  • Strangely, it has the More Damage to the Cursed attribute despite it not being listed in the armory. This can be seen in game as it applies green skulls to enemies' heads.
  • Attempting to shoot without any ammo will cause a unique sound to play. This sound is similar to the beginning of the dog's laugh in Duck Hunt
