Who in the hell puts speakers THIS close to the ears???

—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Deadly Digital System, also commonly known as the DDS, is a Special weapon introduced in the 15.9.0 update. It can be obtained for a limited time as part of the Military Trader's Van event in the armory.

Description

It is a weapon that shoots a radius with musical notes. It has great damage, a slow attack speed, and decent-to-good mobility. When maxed out, it is capable of 2-hitting enemies.

Appearance

It appears to be an exoskeletonlike weapon, but music themed. There is a remote device that the player holds. Attached to the strapped object (probably the Hi-Fi system) are the two speakers. Each of these speakers consists of yellow subwoofer and pink and cyan tweeters (treble speakers).

Performance

It is a weapon that blasts a powerful sound wave in all directions away from the user, implying that it has a limited range and has area damage. Moreover, this weapon can induce random effects, which means that they can either bleed, burn, or poison the enemy, which means in any case, they temporarily lose extra health.

It has infinite capacity and never reloads, so it has no reload animation, other than just tuning the remote before each shot. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this in close range scenarios as this weapon is melee-like.
  • To benefit from the area damage very well, use this against crowds of enemies.
  • Since it has random effects, use it to weaken players.
  • Feel free to use this against a group, since it has area damage.
  • Make sure to use this skillfully as this is a 2 shot.
  • Use it as an upgrade of Mr. Deejay or how you would use Luxury Beats.
  • If a player is on the roof and you are below in a building, jump to hit the player
  • Pairing this weapon with a utilty weapon with PullingTowardsTarget.png can make you a deadly player due to this weapon's 360 degree damage radius and the easy map traversing.
  • This weapon can bypass the Energy Shield module combo, so take advantage of that.
  • Take advantage of it's infinite ammunition.
  • Spam this weapon in close ranged maps and you will get so much kills.

Counters

  • Stay away from the user at all times, as this can be deadly, despite being a 2-3 shot.
  • Simply attack the user from long ranges.
  • The mobility isn’t that perfect, so use any weapon with 80 mobility or above to escape.
  • Jump over the sound waves to avoid being hit (Double Jump needed)
  • Use weapons with the "Slows Down Target" trait to reduce the user's maneuverability.
  • Berserk suidicidal method for a last resort: Attack the user yourself with a Melee weapon with similar damage, killing/injuring the enemy badly and yourself in the process.
  • The Ice Cream Thrower is a good counter against DDS users. The 50% damage reduction effect allows you to have time to kill the enemy because the enemy's damage is reduced.
