  • Due to its high damage output. It can take out your targets quickly.
  • Conserve ammo due to its low capacity, so aim carefully.

  • Fight at medium range or higher for a less complicated duel.
  • Paired with the Sniper set, it can take out an Adamant-armored player in 3 headshots, assuming they are consecutive.

  • Area damage weapons easily pick off its users as the blasts mess with their aim.

Weapon Setups

  • The Poison Hunter shares a massive similarity to the "Sydney Sleeper" from Team Fortress 2; both are "dart guns" that are used as a sniper rifle, the only difference between the two weapons is that the scope of the Sydney Sleeper is nearly as long as the barrel of the gun, and will apply Jarate.
  • It was the first sniper weapon that deals damage over time, the second one being the Photon Sniper Rifle.
  • This and the Wyvern are the only Snipers that possess the Poison attribute.
  • In the 13.5.0 update, this weapon has been buffed to where it now has an efficiency of 22 and a maximum efficiency of 24. It's combat levels are 11 and 12.
