The Disruptive Howitzer is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 21.7.0 update. It is a cumbersome sniper weapon that fires large-caliber rounds that explode upon impact. It deals high damage, has a moderately low fire rate, a decent ammo capacity, but is hampered by low mobility.

Appearance

The weapon itself features a green military camouflage paintjob. It has a skeletal stock with a black pistol grip and trigger, a large receiver with its magazine feed at the left of the weapon, and a large scope featuring the X-RayVision.png and TargetMark.png attribute. The front of the weapon features a folded bipod with a grey barrel and a large black muzzle brake.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, the weapon will fire an yellow bullet that will explode upon impact, dealing splash damage. When it target mark's enemies it shows a red arrow pointing to the enemy that has been shot. You can also see the red arrow even if the opponent is hiding behind a wall. After firing, the user will cycle the bolt with another bullet in the chamber.

When reloading, the user will eject the used magazine and insert a new one.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use the scope at long ranges. Its high magnification makes it useful for precise aiming at these distances.
  • It has area damage, so aim near your opponents or aim for a group.
  • Try strafing while aiming to prevent enemies from hitting you when engaged in a firefight.
  • If an enemy survives the shot, finish them off with a Primary or Backup weapon.
  • Since it features a target mark attribute, aim at the enemies with the scope for about a second to mark them (a bar will fill up saying "Marking Target...").
    • Your teammates can also see the marked enemy so use this to help them.
  • In Duels mode, use the target mark to mark your opponent and see where they are, making it easier to spy them if they are hiding.
  • Use these against invisible players.

Counters

  • If engaged in a sniper duel, take time to aim.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Try to wait until the user is out of ammo, then attack while they are vulnerable.
  • Flank around the user with a shotgun or melee weapon and attack them from behind.
  • Avoid being caught in the open when there is a sniper, stick to cover and locate the sniper then attempt to countersnipe them with your own.
