This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Elephant Hunter (PGW).

The Elephant Hunter is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 8.0.0 update, and was an upgrade of the Ultimate Headhunter. It later became an independent weapon.

Appearance

It is a large anti-material rifle that bears resemblance to the real-life Barrett M82 rifle with dark desert camouflage and red stripes on the sides. It has a long and thin black barrel and a black scope.

Strategy

This weapon has great efficiency, average rate of fire, low capacity and normal mobility.

Tips

  • Use this weapon at long distances to maximize the scope's usefulness.
  • Be sure to aim for the head to maximize damage and conserve ammunition.
  • When against an unarmored opponent, aim for the center of mass instead. They will be downed in a single bodyshot, and aiming for the center of mass can make aiming easier.
  • Take the time to aim first if locked in a sniper duel.
  • It is recommended to use this weapon in long-range maps.
  • This can one shot players so try to be accurate so you can get fast kills.
  • In Team Fight, pick off key targets (i.e. Ghost Lantern users) to prevent enemies from getting fast easy kills.
  • After racking a kill from a sniping spot, move to another position as players can find your position by looking at the kill cam.
  • If used in close ranges combined with precision, it heavily damages your target. Tearing the bulk of their health and armor away, making them easy to finish off.
  • As the scope heavily decreases your field of view, occasionally unscope and look at your surroundings to look for any potential attackers.
  • This weapon can also be used for Three Category Spam, as it doesn't have any delay when switching between weapons.

Counters

  • Get in close with a weapon with lots of damage, however, if you approach head-on, experienced players can kill you without using the scope. Ambush the user or attack from behind for the best results.
  • A fast-firing weapon with a scope such as the Guerrilla Rifle will make the most of the weapon's slow firing speed.
  • Avoid routes which other users are known to frequent.
  • Keep out of its users' sight.
  • You can counter this with another sniper weapon.
  • Pick off its users from long ranges while still unsuspected.
  • Area damage weapons are good counters due to their knockbacks where it will mess the users' aim. Use them in a range where the users can't mostly dodge the projectiles.

Supported Maps

Weapon Setups

  • Have a close range weapon along with this one. A shotgun can be effective if you are cornered or ambushed.
  • Alternatively, a scoped rifle can be used for eliminating unarmored targets, saving ammunition for tougher foes.
  • Regardless, be sure to have a reliable weapon to use at close range.
  • Pack a backup/primary weapon to finish off weakened opponents.

Trivia

  • It is based off the real world Barrett M107A1 .50 BMG sniper rifle with desert camouflage. Even though it is commonly viewed as a sniper weapon, it is actually an anti-materiel rifle.
  • Curiously, when this weapon fires, the bolt pulls back. This would have cycled another round, making operating the bolt unnecessarily complicated.
  • You can now buy it in the Armory without upgrading the Brutal Headhunter (PG3D).
  • It was once glitched and couldn't be equipped.
  • In the 10.0.0 update, it received an extra upgrade.
  • In the same update, for some users, this rifle did not appear in the Armory, but could still be bought from the Kill Cam this was patched in the following update.
  • It can one shot headshot enemies at max efficiency and with the right equipment.
  • As of the 10.0.4 update, this weapon and its upgrade has been removed, but previous owners still own it, being a Pixel Gun on other's screens. The Kill Cam still shows the weapon as an Elephant Hunter though.
    • However, it was brought back in the 12.1.0 update.
    • It can also be obtained in the Super Chest in the Super Lottery in the 16.2.0 update.
    • When you get killed by this weapon, the top left of the kill-cam will say Electro Blast Rifle instead of Elephant Hunter.
