The Emitter of Uncertainty is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 16.5.0 update. It can be obtained for a limited time as part of the Trader's Van event in the armory.
It is a large, sci-fi weapon with an overall gold, green and grey colour scheme. The top of the gun has a levitating yellow scope, which is attached by its base to a grey canopy which covers the weapon. Its main barrel has grey and green streaks and is capped off by a dark gold strip. Below it is a form of green-energy cell, also capped off by gold colouring. The ammunition is located at the back of the weapon, showing two eyes of an unknown creature inside a fragile - this - way - up box.
It has very good damage, a medium-slow fire rate, a low capacity, and a slow mobility. It is 2 shots.
- This weapon shoots different rockets each shot, each with varying effects. The known rockets are:
- A rocket that flies in a spiral pattern with a slight arc that leaves a blue trail (Attribute: Multiple Rockets).
- A rocket that acts like a sticky mine and leaves a purple trail (Attributes: Sticky Mines, Contact Detonator).
- A rocket that flies straight forward and leaves a red trail (Attribute: Cluster Bomb).
- A rocket that can ricochet and leaves behind a green trail (Attributes: Looping Shot, Ricochet, Contact Detonator).
- Use this in close to medium ranges as this weapon has bullet travel.
- Use the area damage to take out a group of enemies.
- Switch to any 85 mobility weapon when not using this weapon.
- Conserve ammo as the capacity is quite small.
- Simply pick off the user from long range.
- Attack the user when they’re reloading.
- Strafe around the user to waste their ammo.
- You can outrun the user with any 85 mobility weapon.
- Attack its users from behind so he/she will not be given time to retaliate.
Bring any sniper with you or a good primary.
- This weapon is a reference to the Uncertainty Principle. The creature in a box ammo clip of this gun is a reference to a thought experiment by physicist Erwin Schrödinger, which involves a cat in a box, with a can of poisonous gas released by a radioactive element. Due to the uncertainty principle, the state of the element is unknown, which means it is unknown whether the poisonous gas is released. Thus, one cannot say whether the cat is dead or not. This means that the cat is both dead AND alive at the same time, which is not (normally) possible.
- It is the first weapon to feature the Random Rockets attribute.
- As its name suggests, it shoots projectiles that are quite different (in terms of color and effect).
- Each projectile or rocket from this weapon has a different area damage effect.
