Tips

  • Use this how you would use the Electromagnetic Cannon, as they work similarly.
  • This weapon does a small to medium size of area damage in this update so it is very effective.
  • Try to use this against enemies that are close together as its chain reaction can hit multiple enemies.
  • The weapon's travel time makes this less useful at long ranges, try switching to a sniper weapon that has no travel time like Anti-Hero Rifle or the Supercharged Rifle.
  • This weapon deals the one of the highest Damage Per Second (DPS) in the game.
  • Note that you cannot rocket jump with this weapon.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) at a long range.
  • Avoid going near friendly players and entities, as its chain damage can reach you if you are close to their targets.
  • Try strafing around its users since this weapon does not deal area damage.
  • To fully counter this weapon, you need a full armor set and a Barrier Rifle. Use the Barrier Rifle to block the rockets then switch to the Excalibur or Viking to quickly eliminate the user.

Equipment Setups

Bring a good Sniper to use for longer ranges such as Sakura or Flag Keeper.
