Each Christmas Tree is decorated with a beautiful but a very unstable garland. The bullet explodes upon reaching the surface, sending your enemies some spikes and Christmas spirit. It also burns them.

—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Spruce Pistol is a Backup weapon introduced in the 15.7.0 update. It can be obtained from the New Year's Lottery.

Description

It is a Christmas tree pistol that shoots yellow projectiles with area damage and burning. It has good damage, a decent fire rate, decent capacity, and average mobility.

Appearance

The pistol has a candy cane motif on the parts near the grip and a decorated Christmas tree for a barrel.

Performance

This weapon shoots yellow cubic particles from its nozzle. These particles have a slow bullet travel time. These particles also have area damage on impact and they can burn the affected opponent(s), making them lose extra health for a few seconds.

When reloading, the player takes out the gauge from the back of the weapon, then they put another one.

It has a fixed delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Spruce Pistol always has a delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • It is a 4 - 5 shot kill, so time your shots correctly.
  • It has area damage, so projectiles that land near the opponent's feet will still count as a hit.
  • It has the burning attribute, so use it to your advantage.
  • Since it has bullet travel, use it in close range.

Counters

  • Attack the user from afar.
  • The area damage is quite small, so strafe around.
  • Attack the user when they're reloading.
  • Fight the user at close range with a Melee weapon.

Trivia

  • Its Burning attribute shows an unrealistic feature in its design- it shoots projectiles capable of setting targets on fire from a candy cane pistol with a miniature tree as a barrel.
