The Poseidon Trident is a Special weapon introduced in the 13.0.0 update.

Appearance

It appears to be a very large trident. It has extremely large spikes at the top, although you can’t use it as a melee weapon. It has a blue handle and is plated with some gold.

Strategy

This weapon deals very high damage, moderate fire rate, has a high capacity, and has decent mobility.

Tips

  • Try to use this weapon in groups as you may be able to kill multiple people at once.
  • Always move around when using this weapon.
  • Aim a bit higher than where you actually want to shoot because the weapon shoots slightly lower.
  • Spam this weapon in close corridors like the Silent School or Pool Party. The projectile can hit most people if they stand close together and when they are in a corridor due to its piercing shot attribute.
  • Time your shots, as this weapon does have a bullet travel time.
  • Aim for the head for maximum efficiency per swing.
  • Use this to gain free armor (3).
  • While trying to take out flying enemies/jet pack users, you should aim a bit lower than where they are, because they may drop down a bit and be hit by your shot.

Counters

  • Use the Guardian. You can dodge the trident's projectiles while the Guardian attacks.
  • Keeping your distance from the user and movement is a good way to reduce incoming damage.
  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Use a high fire rate weapon like the Excalibur. You can overwhelm them with bullets because the of the trident's somewhat slow rate of fire.
  • Keep in mind that these travel time shots are horrible at hitting jet-packers or Rocket Jumpers. Bear in mind that, opponents can predict your movement and hit you.
  • Strafe around the bullets, don't try to rush in close without an efficient close range weapon. This weapon performs well at close to medium range so be careful.

Supported Maps

Weapon Setups

  • Have a weapon with a higher capacity.
  • This weapon could be paired with a category spam set in a medium-sized map.
  • This weapon pairs great with the Prototype S. If you happen to hit an opponent with the Prototype S but fail to kill them, switch quickly to the trident and finish them off.

Trivia

  • It is the third throwing-type Special weapon to be added, the other two being the Snowball and the Tactical Tomahawk.
  • This is the only weapon to not collect ammo for itself.
  • This weapon has some similarities in strategy and mechanics with the Laser Spear.
  • It is similar to the trident that the Greek god Poseidon used.
  • When fired, the sound effects make it seem as though the trident is traveling through water, even though it is not.
  • As of the 15.1.0 update, this weapon destroyed enemies with 1 shot
  • After the 15.1.0 update, it is a 2-3 headshot to max armored players now.
    • However, in the 15.4.0 update, it has been buffed immensely in which, at max upgrade, is a 1 shot headshot.
