The Brutal Rainbow is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 21.1.0 update.
The Brutal Rainbow is a sleek silver sniper rifle of the Mythical grade that deals good damage, along with decent capacity, fire rate and slow mobility. It also has the ability to inflict the attribute on enemies.
It is a futuristic-looking railgun has rainbow lights inside the barrel and a gray body with the word 'BRUTAL' on it. It has a small rainbow magazine underneath the main part of the gun, and a light blue transparent sight with crosshairs included on the top of the weapon.
When the fire button is pressed, a rainbow laser is fired from the barrel, and it can go through walls/wall break and blind a foe . When reloading, the player pushes the barrel down, launching the magazine. Then the player puts a new magazine into the gun and suddenly moves the gun upward, closing and securing the barrel.
When an enemy can see you, and you are low on health, quickly switch to this weapon and blind the user.
