The Chickaboom! is a Primary weapon added in the 17.5.0 update.

Description

The Chickaboom! is a large primary shotgun weapon that deals large amounts of damage to players similar to the Viking. It has great damage, a mediocre fire rate for a shotgun, decent capacity, and low mobility. It is able to 1 shot enemies to the body when at max level.

Appearance

It appears to be a shotgun with silver/white frame and grip/handle, a brown pump, an orange (presumably) tactical rail, a grey barrel and butt-stock, a red stock, barrel end, and trigger, and some green details. The red barrel end (chicken resemblance) has a poison-green beak (presumably) acting as a muzzle. When this weapon reloads, there appears to be a surrounding circle of white feathers and orange red waves.

Performance

It performs very similarly compared to the Prehistoric Shotgun. It also shares the DealsDamageDuringReloading.png attribute similar to the Ouroboros. It usually kills in 1 shot but the damage depends on how far or close the enemy is close from the user.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Chickaboom! will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.
