Shoots small meteo-mines that can stick to any surface. Nature doesn't have bad weather. But your opponent has.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Cloud Launcher is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.4.0 update. It can be obtained from the Trader's Van.

Description

It is a sci-fi mine launcher that has the ability to shoots cloud mines. It has good damage, a slow fire rate, a decent capacity, and a slow mobility. It is 3 shots.

Appearance

It features a blue and white body with glowing white details, as well as a white and pink pistol grip, connecting to the front of the weapon. The top of the body is a blue unused iron sight. The front of the weapon comprises of a diamond shaped magazine that glows white, with two claw-like barrels with golden tips that seem to accumulate electrical energy, compressing and projecting it as an electrical cloud mine.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, it will launch an electrical cloud that will stick to any object. If touched by an enemy it will explode, dealing damage to the one that triggered it and those around him/her if close enough

When reloading, the user will eject the energy cell at the front and will replace it with a new one.

It fires light blue electric mines, which leave a cloud-white trail.

It has a fixed delay input. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Cloud Launcher always has a delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

It has high damage, a slow fire rate, a decent capacity, and a slow mobility. It is 2 shots.

  • Place its mines on hidden spots on where players mostly pass through.
  • It is a good counter against melee players.
  • Only use it for making traps as it performs poor on direct combat.
  • Lure targets to the mines.
  • Use this in close range maps, as it can trap targets easily.
  • This weapon is useful against multiple enemies due to its area damage, and also its ability to chain shots.
  • Use it on weakened enemies due to this weapon being a 2 shot.
  • If you are trapped by crowding enemies, you can use this weapon to disperse them. However, be aware that you will kill yourself in the process.
  • It can be extremely difficult to land hits with, only use it when setting traps, or if you're confident of hitting your target.
  • Going too close to your enemy is bad because this weapon does extreme self damage.

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Avoid hallways since users will take advantage of claustrophobic areas using this weapon.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can counter users at close range.
  • Be wary on small areas where the bombs might be rigged.
  • Attack its users from behind while he is complacent firing multiple mines towards other enemies.
  • Its projectile is quite noticeable from afar, due to its travel time.
