This beast isn't that scary as it may look like from the first glimpse. But if you make one angry (or its host) its glands will send you a ball of extraordinary malicious acid. It pierces through everything on its way.

The B.E.A.S.T. is a Special weapon introduced in the 12.6.0 Halloween update.

Description

It is an chemical launcher utilizing an alien as part of its weapon. This weapon deals medium-low damage, has a slow fire rate, good capacity, and a medium-low mobility.

Appearance

It appears to be a weapon with an electronic battery clip, a light gray and cyan back, a dark gray body, a dark gray handle and a red trigger. On the dark gray body, there is a brown copper conductor. There are two hydraulic arms of the weapon that holds an alien Beast or Beetle between them, and squeezes the creature to make it vomit acid. Its projectiles are similar to the Killer Whale's projectiles, but a wicked green color.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, the weapon will fire a large green circular acidic projectile that will inflict Poison.png and will pierce through multiple enemies. It's projectile has travel time.

When reloading, the user will replace the red energy cell with a new one.

Strategy

This weapon deals medium-low damage, has a slow fire rate, good capacity, and a medium-low mobility.

Tips

  • Its acid projectiles do not have the area damage effect, do take note when attempting to take out a group of enemies.
  • Try to aim at the ground near enemies so they can't easily avoid the acid.
  • Enemies can easily see the projectiles at long range, so fire the projectiles at medium to close range to give them a hard time avoiding the projectiles, or sneak attack them from behind.
  • Try to kill multiple enemies at once, since this weapon is a piercing shot weapon.
  • The poison effect will finish off other players very often.
  • This gun is good for Silent School or any other map with long corridors due to it's "piercing shot" effect.

Counters

  • This weapon has a low mobility and travel time, so take advantage of that and eliminate them long range with a Sniper weapon or a weapon with instant travel time.
  • Rockets are easy to dodge in long distances. So pick off its users in medium-long ranges to prevent them raining rockets to you.
  • Attack its users while they are vulnerable. Like while they are reloading or standing still.
  • Move around as this gun has a long travel time.
  • Due to it's bullet travel time not being instantaneous, jumping, strafing or even just circling the user could help you dodge it's projectiles. You could use boots to jump higher to dodge the projectiles, such as the Storm Trooper Boots, Ninja Tabi or the Berserk Boots.

Recommended Maps

Close ranged maps such as Pool Party or maps like Silent School with long hallways to spam down.

Equipment Setups

Use fast firing or long ranged weapons like the Secret Forces Rifle, Automatic Peacemaker or the One Shot. Use a more reliable close range weapon too.
