An assault rifle that shoots radium bullets. Some of the followers of alternative medicine believe that shooting yourself is healthier for your life than doing an X-ray.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Nuclear Rifle is a Primary weapon introduced in the 16.1.0 update. It can be obtained in the form of parts in the Super Lottery.

Description

It is a radiation-themed rifle that shoots a pair of green lasers in bursts. It has good damage, a good fire rate, a low capacity, and good mobility.

Appearance

It has a desert tan skeletal stock with a grey butt, connected to the body of the weapon. The body is mainly grey, with a dark brown pistol grip, a black trigger, a brown/green magazine, and a gauge mounted on the left side of the weapon.

In the middle, it has the nuclear symbol in black and green, with a tube connecting to the body of the weapon.

It features two grey/green barrels with a grey/green front iron sight that fires two light green lasers.

Performance

This weapon shoots a pair of visible, green laser beams with instant bullet travel time and in medium-ranged battles in bursts. These lasers can temporarily reduce the mobility of players and it can poison them, which means lose extra health for a few seconds.

When reloading, the clip from this weapon is taken out and is replaced by another.

It has a fixed delay input. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Nuclear Rifle always has a delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Make every shot count, as this weapon fires in bursts of 2.
  • Use both the Slowing and Poison attributes to your advantage.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • 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(s).
  • Try to dodge the bullets and try to get the user to run out of ammo since the weapon runs out of ammo quickly.
  • If all else fails, use a weapon with a faster fire rate and a higher efficiency, such as the Royal Fighter and encounter the user face to face while continuously shooting at him/her to hopefully, kill the enemy before you die.
