The Exterminator is a Backup weapon introduced in the 9.4.0 update.
It is a Railgun that resembles a pistol. It also has a polished wood handle with a golden bottom. The base is golden and blue, the ammo cell is blue, the 2x scope is golden with a blue Crosshair (it is not blue, but instead white when aiming down the sights), and the tip at the end is turquoise/teal. The magazine and rail resemble an eye (magazine) and an alligator-like jaw (rail), like the Thunderer
It has great damage, a slow rate of fire, a small and decent capacity, and decent mobility.
- Use the scope to aim for the head. It's best to use in mid-range combat and for ambushes due to its low firing rate.
- The wall break can be utilized to kill players who try to break for cover.
- Make use of this weapon's high damage, as this weapon is deadly for starters.
- Its mobility is not enough for optimal fleeing purposes.
- Try not to miss any shots, if you do, you will be at a major disadvantage with the slow fire rate. The enemy you were shooting at also might discover your location, due to the traced shots.
- Use a rocket jumping weapon to boost yourself into the air, then fire downwards on other players so that it is harder for them to hit you.
- This is a popular choice in triple category spam, the other alternative being the Thunderer. This is because with some weapon combinations it doesn't have any delay.
- Usually use this when players are low on health or standing still.
- Make your shots count as the fire rate is low.
- Use the scope to your advantage.
- Run around the player in close range and attack with an area damage dealing weapon.
- Due to the slow firing rate and long reloading, use a high-speed weapon such as a Hellraiser to shoot its user.
- Use an explosive weapon to knock them back and mess their aim.
- Strafe around the user while shooting an area damage weapon in order to daze the user.
Have a short range weapon to attack in close ranges.
- Along with the Stinger, it was a new weapon introduced in the 9.4.0 update that was able to be rented for Android users but it was never able to be rented to iOS users.
- It uses the same laser projectiles, and the same firing sound as the Prototype, whilst in reality; actually firing a metal slug.
- Its fire rate is a bit higher than that of the Prototype.
- Although this weapon's beam has the same ability as the Prototype's and Laser Minigun's, the beam does not stay mid-air. It vanishes right after you shoot the gun. However, this was changed in the 10.0.7 update, where the beams have the same property.
- The Exterminator was nerfed in the 10.1.0 update; changes include a mobility drop from 110 to 105, the price is raised from 133 to 177 , and the 4x scope was downgraded to a 2x scope. However, now the price is reduced again to 100 , making this weapon being extremely worth the price.
- Being a railgun, it uses magnetic rails and possibly coils to accelerate a metal slug on mach velocities, causing massive kinetic damage. In reality, this weapon would effortlessly break one's arm when fired due to the recoil. However, due to the unrealistic physics of this game, it doesn't affect the player.
- Except this is most likely a laser being fired. If the railgun was actually fired it would go in a different direction. Since it is a type of light, there would be no recoil.
- In the 12.5.0 update, a recolored variant with a different colored laser and firing sound was introduced, known as the Thunderer.
- Its ammo size has been reduced along with most weapons in the 16.1.0 update.
