This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Poison Hunter (PGW).
The Poison Hunter is a Sniper weapon added in the 10.3.0 update.
It is a sniper rifle that shoots bullets with a poisoning effect. It has good damage, a high fire rate, a low capacity, and average mobility.
It is a dart rifle outfitted with a 10x zoom scope, the clip is made out of a cylinder filled with 8 darts arranged in a bullpup design, the barrel is wrapped in green cloth with a pair of dog tags or feathers dangling on the barrel.
This sniper, which has a scope that allows long-range battles, shoots regular bullets with instant bullet travel time which can poison the player. Due to this weapon's poison attribute, it does not matter significantly if the player does not instantly kill your enemy since they would be further damaged by the poison.
When reloading, the player takes out the weapon's clip from the top and replaces it with a spare one. It has no delay mechanics.
