it has good damage, a good fire rate, a low capacity, and a good mobility.

  • Try to fire in bursts while engaging users at farther ranges.
  • This weapon's fire rate is much slower than displayed, so do not be fooled by the stats.
  • If users keeps jumping around, use this to slow them down, hence negating them from jumping so much.
  • Aim for the head for maximum damage.
  • Pair this up with the Storm Trooper Cape and Burning Tiara for more power per shot.
  • Gadgets are key to use with this weapon, it helps to pre-damage players before combat, as this weapon may take a while to kill a player.
  • It is effective against mobile targets such as Jetpack users due to its fire rate and its ability to slow down enemies.
  • It is a 10 shot(5 bursts), so make every shot count.
  • Use both slowing and poison effect to your advantage.


  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Shotguns and area damage weapons can quickly decimate users at close range.
  • Better yet, attacking from behind can give the user less time allowance to counteract.
  • Fight fire with fire, get a weapon that can slow down other players and finish them off with a strong sniper weapon.
  • Use a one-shot kill weapon against its user.
  • Try to dodge the bullets and try to get the user to run out of ammo since this gun runs out of ammo quickly.
  • When countering this weapon use a weapon with a faster fire rate and a higher efficiency, such as the neon fighter, to, hopefully, kill the enemy before they do.
  • Move around to lure the user into wasting his ammo.
