This article describes the Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Hellraiser (PGW).


The Hellraiser is a Primary weapon added in the 8.2.1 update.

Description

The Hellraiser is an automatic Halloween-themed assault rifle, akin to the Secret Forces Rifle. It has decent performance at max level. It deals a decently high amount of damage, has a high fire rate, a decent capacity, and good mobility. It features full auto and 4x zoom.

Appearance

It is based on the Heckler & Koch XM8, a U.S Army prototype assault rifle from the 2000s.

It has a yellow body and handle, a striped green birdcage-style muzzle suppressor and 4x scope, with purple grip, cheek pad, and rubber stopper on the bottom of the handle; it also has a red magazine and collapsible stock.

Strategy

It's considered a very strong weapon due to its high stats. It fires quickly and inflicts high Efficiency per shot. The ammo that it starts out with is 40/80. Each ammo pack gives you 40 ammo. Maxed out, it is 40/200. You get 240 Ammo. It has a 4x scope for sniping. This gun is quite versatile as it is effective at any range, however, it still loses some accuracy shooting long distances.

Tips

  • Wearing mobility increasing accessories can help offset this weapon's somewhat low weight.
  • It is a good multi-purpose weapon for short to mid-long ranges, so you can use it to your advantage.
  • Aim for the head to maximize Efficiency per shot.
    • Pair this with Burning Tiara, Storm Trooper Cape, Hunter's Altar and Halloween Mask to benefit the weapon the most.
  • The recoil of this weapon, however, is slightly uncontrollable, so try to make every shot count.
  • Due to its spray pattern, it is best used in close-ranged firefights.
  • When picking off targets from long ranges with it, shoot in short bursts to compensate for its accuracy-dampening recoil.
  • It is not smart to shoot an enemy from a distance, the accuracy is horrible at medium-long ranges unless scope is used.
  • As this weapon has a fast firing rate, keep a watch on how fast you are spending your ammo.

Counters

  • This weapon can be quite deadly in capable hands, it is an effective strategy to try and sneak up behind its user with a strong weapon such as a shotgun or explosive.
  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Dodge their shots so they have a hard time hitting you and waste their ammo in the process.

Supported maps

All maps except for Sniper Forts and Knife Party.

Weapon Setups

This gun works great on its own. However, its weight is somewhat high so have a low weight weapon that you can use for fast travel.

Trivia

  • It is a reference to the 1987 film Hellraiser, by Clive Barker.
  • This and the Secret Forces Rifle are based on the XM8 Assault Rifle.
  • This is one of few weapons to have an actual recoil animation when firing.
  • The Secret Forces Rifle is its powerful variant.
  • In the current update, this weapon is 7 headshots kill if fully upgraded without Efficiency booster wears.
