The mechanism of the multi-barrelled machine gun won't change in the future. However, unlike the current versions, this weapon shoots little plasmoids which fly so fast that no cover will save you.

—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Plasma Minigun is a Primary weapon introduced in the 15.7.0 update. It can be obtained from the Christmas Invasion Battle Pass.

Description

It is a mainly silver minigun that shoots blue, cubic particles. It has average damage, a fast fire rate, a good capacity, and slow mobility. It is 12-13 shots with area damage.

Appearance

The weapon has a black/silver color scheme with a solid stock, a black/silver pistol grip, a silver trigger, a silver/black magazine, and three rotating barrels.

Performance

This weapon shoots blue, cubic particles at a very high fire rate. These particles have a fast, but not the instant bullet travel time and can perform best at medium range. Moreover, these particles have a blue splash radius. It has a minigun attribute, which gives it a small delay before shooting.

When reloading, the clip from the weapon's bottom is taken out and is replaced by another. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • When engaging in close range combat, aim for the feet or any surface area near the enemy, since this has area damage.
  • Reload this weapon when out of battle.
  • This weapon is useful for effective area denial due to its fast firing rate and its exploding projectiles.
  • Fire upon groups of enemies to weaken them.
  • Its effective to counter Jetpack users due to its fast firing rate, provided that one is accurate enough.
    • Keep in mind that this weapon has travel time.
  • Keep your shots count while spam-firing so as to reduce ammo wastage.

Counters

  • Sniper weapons, like the Photon Sniper Rifle, or the Black Hole are an easy counter.
  • Use a high-damage dealer, such as the Neon Fighter or the Hypersound Uzi to make quick work of the user.
  • Try to stay away from any surfaces, either the ground or the wall.
  • Taking cover would remain one of your best options to avoid these users. However, do not take cover right next to walls; the area damage can hit you through walls.
  • Use powerful heavy weapons like the Shrimposaur.
  • Shotguns like the Mega Destroyer, or the Acid Shotgun work well against its users.
