These plants are carnivorous. We don't know yet what does it mean, whether they eat flesh or other plants.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Tube Backpack is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.7.0 update. It can be obtained from the Arcade Season Battle Pass.

Description

It is a pair of monstrous plants that emit a burning particle each. It has good damage, a medium fire rate, a high capacity, and low mobility.

Appearance

The upper half of this weapon consists of two Poisonous Plants, with somewhat altered eyes, attached to an 8 bit blue pipe. The player holds an NES controller with a black antenna, which controls the the weapon's shooting mechanism.

Performance

This weapon shoots pixelated burning particles with moderate bullet travel time from the plants. Each plant alternates to emit the particle, which will burst into a retro smoke animation if it comes in contact with walls or other players. Moreover, the particle has a looping shot attribute, which means it is shot in an arc trajectory. This particle can also burn the affected players, making them lose extra health over a period of time.

When reloading, the player hands the plants fruit to feed them. This weapon has a fixed delay, which means each time you switch to this weapon, there will be a short delay before you can shoot.

Strategy

Tips

  • Because of the looping shot, aim upwards.
  • Get a hit on the opponent and finish them while they still have the Burning effect.
    • If you die while they are at low health, they can still be finished by the burning effect.
  • Its firing rate is relatively slow, so take cover, even though the capacity is very high.
  • Due it being an exoskeleton, equip a different weapon while hiding as holding this can reveal your spot.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Take cover if you get hit by a fireball.
  • Strafe around while attacking them to minimize the chances of getting hit.
  • The user should be easy to find since this is an exoskeleton that easily shows your opponent's spot.
