—Weapon description in the Gallery
The Gold Fever is a Melee weapon introduced in the 15.6.0 Wild West update.
It is a pickaxe that creates a stony area of effect. It has good damage, low attack speed, and low mobility.
It appears to be an old-looking pickaxe with yellow blades and the skull on the middle of the blade above the pommel.
When the player swings this weapon, it creates a stony-looking area of effect that can only affect players in close range.
- This weapon, when fired, makes stone spikes protrude from the ground.
- This weapon deals very high area damage, has a medium hit speed, and has bad mobility.
- Use it against a group to take out multiple enemies.
- Since this weapon only makes spikes protrude in front of the player, make sure you get behind them then attack with large damage dealing melee/flamethrower.
- Attack the user from long-range, possibly with a sniper.
- Jump around so you don't get hit. But be careful while doing so since this has area damage.
Bring any long-ranged weapon.
