—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Deadman's Rifle is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 15.3.0 update. It can be obtained from the Halloween Lottery event.

Description

It is a Halloween-themed rifle that shoots a blue laser instantaneously. This weapon has a good fire-rate for a sniper, high damage, and low mobility. It is arguably one of the best snipers. It functions similarly to the Supercharged Rifle.

 Appearance

It has a wooden rifle stock with a grey cheek rest near the back of the stock. It also has a black trigger with a grey trigger guard.

The main body of the weapon is mainly purple with neon blue lighting. On top, it has a wooden scope with a light blue lens.

The front of the weapon features a grey/white skull with light glowing blue eyes, and a light blue mist in front of it.

Performance

This weapon shoots a cyan projectile with a cyan splash radius and instant bullet travel time. Moreover, it has a 4x zoom optic sight which allows it to fight in longer ranges.

When reloading, the player takes out the skull of the gun and places another one inside.

It gives a delay on some weapons that are associated with Three Category Spam like the Thunderer and the Reflector. It also receives a delay if those weapons were shot, then quickly switched to this weapon.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use at a distance or in mid-range maps to take full advantage of the weapon's area damage attribute.
  • Since it has area damage, you can also be less accurate with the weapon without losing any damage.
  • Aim at the floor beneath someone when shooting, as this will increase the chance of hitting a player.
  • Use shots wisely as even though the weapon has a relatively high capacity, it is still quite slow when it comes to fire rate.
  • Do NOT attempt to Rocket Jump with this weapon, as you will only damage yourself.
  • Use this similarly to the Black Hole and Eva.

Counters

  • Stay as far away as possible from other users so that you are harder to hit.
  • Stay behind solid walls and use weapons that have the wall break attribute to pick off Deadman's Rifle users.
    • DO NOT stay too close to these walls as its area damage attribute can somewhat damage a player directly behind a wall.
  • Try to mess up with their aim by shooting them with a Burning weapon.
  • Rocket Jump to make hitting you relatively harder.
  • Use a high-mobility melee and run around the enemy in circles while making sudden, unexpected attacks with a high-damaging weapon.

Equipment Setups

This weapon can be effective if paired with another area damage weapon such as a Heavy to finish players off.
