—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Firestarter is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 8.2.1 update.

Appearance

It has a bright red pit stock, with a yellow dot on it. The base is a gray color, with a red hand hold. The end of the barrel is yellow. It is a re-skin of the Grenade Launcher.

Strategy

It's a quite powerful weapon and inflicts high damage (1-2 shot) and does more damage than its counterpart. It is a 1 shot kill when the rocket hits the opponent directly. Each clip holds 1 Ammo out of 6, so 7 total. You start out with 4 in reserve.

Tips

  • Make your shots count, because the weapon can only be used once before reloading
  • Aim at the ground near the enemy to ensure that it will hit the enemy. This also grants the chance of a one shot kill with the increased Efficiency.
  • Use a gear piece such as the Demolition Cape or Bandit Bandage to make this weapon more reliable in a short to medium range scenario.
  • Use this in Block Crash, as the fast fire rate and the devastating damage to blocks make it a reliable weapon.

Counters

  • Move and strafe around the enemy to avoid getting inside the blast radius.
  • Be on the air always so he wil not easily hit you.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Have a reliable Primary or Backup weapon at hand such as Royal Fighter, Veteran, or Void Energy Pistol, as this weapon isn’t very reliable in most medium-range scenarios. Also bring a long-range Sniper like the Adamant Sniper Rifle.
