The Blot Axe is a Melee weapon introduced in the 21.4.0 update.
The Blot Axe is a Mythical grade Melee weapon that is purple-colored with some red for the eyes and teeth of the creature. It has very high damage, a good fire rate, great mobility, and is currently tied with the Heroic Epee for the strongest Healing attribute.
It appears to be a large chicken or parrot-like creature with a big beak attached to the player's arm. It has red eyes and teeth, but the beak is a light purple. It also has a lowered brow and a red mischievous smile. Its design resembles the Goo Substance Scythe.
This weapon, when swung, will damage players in a small radius in front of it, giving them a Random Effect as part of its attributes (Poisoning , Burning , or Bleeding ) In addition, while held, the Blot Axe will passively heal the player (12 points of Health healed per tick of healing) which regenerates 100 health in approximately 8 seconds.
Whenever the Blot Axe is switched to, a short Fixed Delay animation will play lasting around half a second before the user can fire.
- Use the high mobility to escape from dangerous situations or maneuver swiftly.
- Use this for close range fights.
- Deal headshots to take out enemies faster.
- If you are damaged, stay back and use this weapon to regenerate your health.
- Use the Blot Axe for Clan Raids, in which staying alive is vital.
- Hit an enemy and let the effect chip away at them whilst healing yourself after you get out of view of your enemy.
- Use this the way you would use the Goo Substance Scythe, as this weapon performs somewhat similar to the Goo Substance Scythe, just with lower damage, higher attack speed, and different attributes.
- Long-ranged weapons such as Snipers can safely defeat users of this weapon.
- Rocket Jump away from users to get out of the Blot Axe's range.
- If you see someone who you know is using this weapon, go up close to them and take advantage of this weapon's fixed delay. You can get in an extra swing or shot maybe making the difference between life and death.
- Use the Jetpack to pick off users from above.
Since the Blot Axe is a weapon for close ranges, pair this with a Sniper for longer ranges. In addition, equip powerful modules such as Alloy to increase the weapon's overall performance. Pairing melees like the Blot Axe with the Berserk Boots is recommended to help increase mobility.
