Tips

  • Use in mid-short range battles to get easier kills.
  • Don't shoot when the enemy is in mid-air. Wait until he reaches the ground.
  • Blast the floor to propel yourself or an enemy player away to give yourself space away from them.
  • Aim slightly upwards since this weapon has the looping shot ability.
  • This weapon has a decently large hitbox, similar to the Bastion, so you may treat this similarly.
  • Be mindful of how much ammo you have left.
  • This weapon could be paired with the Jetpack, with experience a user can fire this weapon from up above and predict the opponent's position.

Counters

  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Use a Primary weapon and keep shooting the enemy while he is uncovered.
  • Use fast reloading and fast fire rate weapons to tick them off while they are slowly reloading.
  • Try jumping around, since this weapon has a looping shot attribute, they will have a harder time using this weapon against you.
  • Be careful when engaging these users in small hallways or buildings, since you would have a harder time dodging their projectiles.
