The Cooking Totem is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.9.0 update. It can be obtained from the Thanksgiving Season Battle Pass.

Description

It is a totem pole that shoots out green ghosts with wall break and a healing area. It has good damage, a medium fire rate, low capacity, and decent mobility. It has the wall break attribute and usually is a 2-3 shot kill when maxed out, depending on modules and your enemy's armor.

Appearance

It takes the appearance of a totem pole with a wooden base with a bitten drumstick painted on the side. The head of the pole features feathers forming a pair of wings and top of the head. When used, it fires ghost-like turkey projectiles which will pass through solid objects.

Performance

When pressing the firing button, the player swings this weapon so that it shoots out a green bird particle that can go through walls and heal teammates and the player while the top part of the weapon rotates once. But despite the large appearance of the projectile, the hitbox is quite small and it requires the right timing.

It uses the single-shot system, so it has no reload animation.

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

Strategy

Tips

  • The weapon's projectiles can travel through walls, meaning that if an enemy is behind cover, try to aim for him/her and hope that the projectile hits.
    • In addition to this weapon, it has the ability to heal teammates and yourself within a certain radius.
  • This weapon can be used to keep enemies away in tight areas such as hallways or a doorway. Spam the weapon to where the opening is whenever the enemy team wants to push through.
  • This weapon is very useful if one has a coordinated team. This is especially useful in game modes such as Raid and Siege.
  • If you want to become the Medic, then it's recommended to keep close to the team.
  • Make sure you protect the Medic since the Medic can keep the team alive longer.
  • Use it like you would use the Ghost Lantern or Soulstone except with a faster fire rate.
  • This weapon is very useful when it comes to doing challenges that consist of wall break kills.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at a long-range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Attack the user from behind.
  • If the enemy team has a designated healer, target the Medic first.
    • In addition, if an enemy team is grouped around the healer, use a Heavy weapon (Preferrably one with ClusterBomb.png) to deal massive damage to the entire team.
  • Use a weapon with higher damage to overwhelm the Cooking Totem's healing abilities.
