—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Antivirus is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 16.0.0 update.


It is a code-themed sniper that has X-Ray Vision, Ricochet, and Piercing Shot attributes. It deals high damage, with an above-average fire rate, low ammo capacity, 4x scope, and decent mobility. Most of the time, it can one shot max armored players with a headshot, and 1-2 shot to the body.


It takes the appearance of a dark blue sniper rifle. It has a dark blue frame with a dark blue and gray pistol grip, scope, and a yellow connector on the underside of the barrel. In the middle, it has neon blue trim. The barrel of the weapon features 3 Rubik's cube pieces, with a binary code magazine embedded in the weapon's body. The cubes spin slowly when the weapon is idle.

When fired, it fires a laser of neon-green binary code, which will ricochet off of objects. Its appearance is akin to the Laser Bouncer. The cubes will spin faster before turning back into their normal spin speed.


The player, holding this weapon with both hands, shoots green lasers of code with Piercing Shot and Ricochet capabilities. Moreover, it has X-Ray Vision and a Scope, although the attribute is hidden in the Armory.

When reloading, the coding cube is taken out and replaced with another one.

It gives delay on some weapons that are associated with Three Category Spam like the Thunderer and the Reflector. It also receives a delay if those weapons were shot, then quickly switched to this weapon.



  • Aim for the head to maximize its damage.
  • Use a high fire rate weapon with this weapon.
  • Use it similarly to the Third Eye, but with the Ricochet.png attribute.
  • Use this on tight corridors to hit many enemies, due to its Piercing Shot and Ricochet attributes.
  • Reflect the attack on the ground if your aim is good to double the damage.
  • Use this in a Three Category Spam Loadout and combine it with a weapon such as the Laser Cycler or Necklace of the Ice King to cancel its delay animations.
  • Use the scope when engaging enemies from long ranges.
  • It has the X-Ray vision attribute. You can use it to detect hidden enemies easier.
    • If you are skilled enough, you can use the X-Ray attribute to find a target then quickly switch to a wall-break weapon such as the Thunderer before the target changes his/her position. Using Fake Pistol's scope-in attack will let you take out enemies with one shot usually.


  • If caught in a sniper duel, take time to aim first.
  • Strafe while jumping to minimize the chances of getting hit.
  • Shotguns and weapons with area damage make quick work of users.
  • Take advantage of this weapon's reload time to attack the user.
  • The lasers can be traced back to the user, use this to locate where the user is firing from.
  • Avoid engaging users in tight corridors due to the weapon's advantage of bouncing off walls.
  • Hiding is fine since the bullets do not have the wall-break attribute. Be aware of the positions of a user at all times, and be aware that the user can still see you, even if they can't damage you, so be on the lookout at all times.
