The Plague Purifier is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.8.0 update. It can be obtained from the Halloween Season Battle Pass via Mythical Gearicon.

Description

This is a Halloween themed Special weapon. It has high damage, very high fire rate, low capacity and medium mobility.

Appearance

It appears to be a machine pistol-esque weapon with a chemical-handling tube on top of the receiver and a thick flash hider. Attached to the weapon itself is a wire that connects to a green container (with ghost-like shadows), presumably yet another ammo source.

Performance

While shooting, a green particles are coming out of the weapon which inflict your enemies Poison effect and push them to you because of the GravitationForce attribute. While holding the gun(except the reloading time), the black ghosts are spinning in the weapon's magazine.

This weapon needs to be reloaded after shooting 30 times. At the start of reloading animation, ghosts disappear from the magazine, but then they get into magazine back by flying to it using the tube which connects magazine with the weapon. When all the ghosts are in the magazine, you're able to shoot again. The reload animation is 4 seconds long.

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

Strategy

Tips

  • Use it like any other flamethrower, such as the Snow Storm. Only use this in close range, as it is a flamethrower.
  • Take advantage of the Gravitational Force Attribute.
  • Use the Poison attribute to finish off enemies.

Counters

  • Use long range weapons such as the Vampire Hunter. 
  • Use One Shot weapons such as Ultimatum or Christmas Ultimatum.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Equip a long range weapon and a medium range weapon such as the Secret Forces Rifle and the One Shot. Bring an 85 mobility Melee such as Katana to traverse around the map easier.
