Everyone loves fireworks! Except for those who are shot with them. Great AoE damage and better mood for everyone who sees the blast! (again, except for those who are shot with them)

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Fireworks Launcher is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 10.1.0 update.

Description

It is a small fireworks launcher that, hence its name, it shoots colorful fireworks. It has moderate damage, good fire rate, low capacity, and low-average mobility.

Appearance

It has a grey handle, with a fuse coming out of the top of it. It also has a few colorful fireworks exposed in the front of the weapon.

Performance

It shoots fireworks with different colors that perform similarly to the rockets of other weapons like the Rocket Launcher and the Armageddon. The rockets have a slow bullet travel time and have an impact of a firework.

When reloading, the group of fireworks on the front are removed and are replaced with a spare.

Strategy

Tips

  • Go for the weakened players for better ammunition conserving, quicker kill registering and a less complicated duel.
  • It is quite inaccurate so aim as well as you can.
  • It has area damage so you can blast its ammunition near your opponent.
  • It has a low capacity so try to conserve as much ammunition as possible.
  • Use this in close to medium range.
  • It can be used in Sandbox, casually, but however, its ammunition will not automatically provide a message while firing it at a player.

Counters 

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • This weapon doesn't have too much accuracy, but dodge against its fireworks and use an area damage weapon.
  • Counter its user(s) with a fast-firing Primary weapon.
  • Flank its user(s) to minimize the chances of them being able to retaliate.
