—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

It appears to be two peashooters with eyes attached to an 8 bit blue pipe. The player holds an NES controller with a black antenna.

Performance

This weapon shoots pixelated burning particles with fast bullet travel time from the monstrous plants. Each plant takes its turn of emitting the particle. 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.

When reloading, the player hands the plants fruit to feed them. It has no delay mechanics.

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. Though the capacity is extremely 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.

Trivia

  • The reloading sounds similar to when Mario picks up a power-up from most Super Mario games.
