The Astral Wand is a Throwing gadget introduced in the 17.5.0 update.

Appearance

It is a blue/light blue wand with a light blue/yellow shaft, a large blue/yellow skull with horns, and two eyes, each on opposing sides and a light blue gemstone on top.

Performance

When it is used, the user will activate the wand and create an area which causes enemies around the user to slow down and the user to speed up for a short amount of time.

Strategy

Tips

  • This is useful when engaging multiple enemies at once, giving the user more speed to move and take out everyone.
  • Use this when attempting to escape from a charging enemy.
    • This is especially useful in the game mode duels.
  • Use the movement speed boost to quickly strafe around an enemy.
  • One can use this gadget to help with aiming with a sniper weapon.
  • Use it if trapped in the Sticky Candy to help you escape.
  • Use this gadget in flag capture to escape with the flag and to catch up to users who are holding the flag.
  • It is a very good gadget to pair with the Double Cashback, as you will move even a lot faster than you usually do with 85 Mobility weapons.

Counters

  • Avoid getting too close to its users, so you won't be caught in the gadget's AoE. (Area of Effect)
  • Rocket jump or use a transportation weapon such as the Pulling Sucker Gun to get away from the user if you are caught in its radius.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Use the Jetpack to fly above its user(s) and kill them from a distance.
  • Use Gadget Blocking weapons such as Inevitability to prevent the user(s) from activating this gadget for a period of time.
  • Use the Disabler if at close range, so they will be unable to use this gadget for a while.
  • Heavy spam on the user if activated as it will automatically go off if the bearer dies.
