—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Space Disinfector is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 13.3.0 update.

Description

It is an orange and green bomb launcher that shoots out explosive green bombs. It deals good damage, a good fire rate, a great capacity, and low mobility. It has area damage.

Appearance

It is a reskin of the Dark Matter Generator.

It has an orange and red body with a red ammo clip, dark red handle, and a spinning light green crystal because surrounded by two vertical light blue rings (Used to fire the weapon).

Performance

This weapon shoots green crystal particles with a circle around them. These particles leave a green matter explosion on impact and this explosion has area damage. This weapon shoots these particles at a high fire rate. It also allows rocket jumping without self-damage.

When reloading, the player takes out the clip from behind and replaces it with another one.

Strategy

Tips

  • In the 15.9.0 update, it got buffed to a 3-4 shot but got its fire rate nerfed to 84. However, the bullet speed got increased, and the area damage effect(not radius) got reduced, so it's useful as a rocket jump tool or taking out players with this thing alone.
  • Spam it, as it has a high rate of fire.
  • You can easily push players around with this gun as it has the area damage effect.
  • The projectile will leave a vortex that can continue damaging players for a few seconds.
  • Aim at the enemy's feet for better damage, unless they tend to jump and move a lot.
  • This pairs very well with the Singular Grenade.
  • Great for enemies with wooden armor.
  • Allows rocket jumping without taking damage, useful when getting onto tall places or getting out of sticky situations.

Counters

  • Stay away from the enemy and attack from a far distance.
  • The vortexes can be seen and travel slower than bullets, so avoiding them is easy.
  • Most enemies attack without aiming at the ground, so keep strafing while jumping around them for ensured survival.
  • Many area damaging Heavy weapons, such as Christmas Ultimatum or Sly Avenger can make short work versus this weapon's users.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Use a weapon or item with better mobility for easier traveling around areas. Also, carry a fast firing weapon such as Void Ray Rifle or Emperor's Servants to overwhelm the enemy.

Trivia

  • Curiously enough, the Space Disinfector's firing sound is a slightly edited version of Halo 2: Anniversary's "Fuel Rod Gun".
