The Eva is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 13.3.0 update.

Appearance

It is a re-skinned version of the Impulse Sniper Rifle. Its skin theme is similar to the Pumpkin Thrower.

Strategy

This weapon has high damage, above-average fire rate for a Sniper, decent capacity, and a below-average Weight/Mobility. It is 1-2 headshots kill if fully upgraded.

Tips

  • This gun has area damage, where one can shoot the players' feet and do damage.
    • Despite so, you can still aim for the head to increase its Efficiency per shot.
      • Pairing this with Burning Tiara, Hunter's Altar, max Sniper Cape, Halloween Mask and Elemental Module to improve the weapon's Efficiency dramatically.
  • This gun is not suitable for close combat since this weapon's area damage can hit you and damage you.
  • Its conjunction of average firerate, instant area damage, high capacity and ability to headshot is capable of scoring multiple kills.
    • Pair this with Jetpack and throw Singular Grenade, you can rain down shots from above.
  • This gun features harmless rocket jump, so you can use this weapon to harmlessly rocket jump in order to reach certain areas - but you must jump or shoot close to you to make it harmless.
    • In update 15.6, it could be the most useful rocket jump weapon, because you can also kill players with this, beside the Black Hole.
    • As of the Gallery update, this is no longer the case as weapons were reworked.
  • Due to instant projectile speed, this may be an effective counter for mid range jet packs, or other Players rocket jumping.
  • Take advantage of "Burning" attribute, as it may finish off weakened opponent if survived the first headshot.
  • Obtain this rifle when you reached to Level 65, as you not need to spend anything to upgrade.

Counters

  • Use a Wallbreak weapon while taking cover
  • Keep in mind that this gun's projectiles are linear, not homing. So using a Jetpack may prove to be very useful against these users.
  • This gun has a burning effect, but the Cyber Santa Avatar will forestall that.
  • Flamethrower weapons like the Frozen Dragon and Gas Launcher Up1 can easily defeat its users.
  • Using Melee weapons may also prove effective against it, since the Eva is a mid/long range weapon.
  • Using Eva yourself as a last ditch effort if all else failed.
