A quiver filled with knives, as sharp as the words of love, told in the July night, as deadly as the eternal farewell.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Heartbreakers is a Special weapon introduced in the 15.99.0 update. It is obtained from the Valentine's Trader's Van.

Description

It is a Valentine's Day-themed projectile weapon that throws projectiles. They can make the target bleed, as well as pierce through multiple players. It has good damage, a decent fire rate, low capacity, and decent mobility.

Appearance

It is the pair of items being the knife and a shield with pink hearts on it.

Performance

The player holds a sharp knife that resembles that of the kunai and some sort of container or shield which holds more of the knives. When the knife is thrown, it leaves behind a trail of heart symbols.

This weapon uses the single-shots system so it has no reload animation. It has no delay mechanics either.

Strategy

Tips

  • Aim for the head to deal more damage.
  • Defying its looks, you throw a "knife" while you hold a shield.
  • Unfortunately, the shield does not give more armor points.
  • Just like non-reloading Special weapons, it is not recommended to use the Oilcan module or Explosive Ammo module combo on this weapon as it lacks a reload animation.
  • Aim well since it has travel time.
  • Use this against those who wield powerful weapons.
  • Like most Melee-looking Special weapons, it does not work the way it looks.

Counters

  • Be wary of the Charm attribute, since it allows this weapon to reduce your weapon's Efficiency if hit by the projectiles.
  • Any ranged weapons can easily outmaneuver its users.
  • Attack its users from behind so he will not be given more reaction time to retaliate.
  • Engage its users in a long-range attack.
  • Contrary to what its appearance suggests, it is a ranged weapon, so be aware of it.
  • Shotguns can beat its users in close ranges and ambushes.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups
