The Cthulhu Legacy is a Melee weapon introduced in the 17.7.0 update. It is obtained after completing all 6 Atlantis Challenges from Atlantis Season Battle Pass.

Description

It is a green sword with a shield that emits particles with Poison and Consecutive Explosions, and they also allow the player to heal and gain an Armor Bonus. It has high damage, decent attack speed, and high mobility.

Appearance

It seems to be a greenish-black sword with a shield, the main colors being black, green, grey and some dark blue. The sword comes with a handguard with something that looks like the monster Cthulhu's face in the middle of the handguard. It also seems to have something inscribed on the blade of the sword written in green, being in a language that does not exist. The shield has an octopus's mouth in the middle and its arms are entangled on the shield.

In battle the shield appears to have green tentacles sticking out of it, and the sword is glowing green in a similar fashion to the heroic epee when it is powered up.

Performance

Like the Ice Club, Knight‘s Axe, and PGA-06 TV, it has Consecutive Explosions, but unlike the Ice Club, Knight’s Axe, and the PGA-06 TV, the Cthulhu Legacy has a very short range. It's healing is decent (regenerates 8% each second). Armor Bonus (hidden attribute) lets you have more armor, it lets you survive longer when you're facing an opponent that is using a weapon that deals decent or even high amount of damage. The Poison helps you finish off opponents with low health.

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

Strategy

Tips

  • Take advantage of its high mobility by strafing around other players and attacking them from their sides or from behind.
  • Use this weapon after combat to regenerate.
  • Be patient as its regeneration is quite slow.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Try your best to strafe and avoid getting hit from the Consecutive Explosions.
  • Stay out of its range and use a long ranged weapon when fighting these players.
  • Use weapons with high damage, considering that it gives the opponent Armor Bonus and Healing.
  • Attack its user(s) from behind or while they have an attack cooldown.
  • Grab a weapon that slows down players like the Stakegun/Icicle Minigun or the Frost Beam Spell and aim at least one shot at them to slow them down.
  • If the user get close to you, use any powerful shotgun that is enough to kill the user such as Ultimatum.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Equip a long ranged weapon such as a Sniper. As well equip the Super Mutant set as it will make the poison last for longer and make it easier to get kills.
