The Cunning Flame is a Backup weapon introduced in the 21.0.0 update.


The Cunning Flame is a backup weapon of the Mythical rarity introduced in the 21.0.0 Loki Lottery. It deals excellent damage, paired with a decent fire rate, high capacity and a moderate mobility.


The Cunning Flame takes the appearance of a revolver. The pistol appears mostly green and has golden engraves for it's borders, along with several neon blue details. A crystal like object rests within the revolver and appears to be the weapon's source. In addition it has a reddish brown wooden grip and a golden trigger and trigger guard.


It shoots out a blue streaking orb of fire, which flies quickly, bouncing off of walls. When the bullet has travelled a certain distance, it will explode, and a menacing demon's grin will appear.

This weapon has Fixed Delay, meaning that every time a player switches to this, there is a short pull-out animation lasting about half a second before he/she can shot.
