—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Eva is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 13.3.0 update.

Description

It is a purple and green sniper rifle that shoots a bullet with area damage. This weapon has high damage, above-average fire rate for a Sniper, decent capacity, and a below-average weight/mobility. It is 1-2 headshots kill if fully upgraded.

Appearance

It is a re-skinned version of the Impulse Sniper Rifle. Its skin theme is similar to the Pumpkin Thrower.

This gun has a purple-green color to the scope and buttstock. The lenses have a yellow ruby-like color. The magazine has a purple color and shows yellow stripes, the handle is a purple color and the barrel is a purple color. Its nozzle is purple and green.

Performance

This weapon shoots a bullet with a large, explosive and burning splash radius with instant bullet travel time. Moreover, this weapon possesses a 10x zoom optic sight, which allows it to fight in longer ranges.

When reloading, the player takes out the magazine, puts another one and triggers the bolt. It has no input delay, which means that it causes delay on output delay weapons.

Strategy

Tips

  • This gun has area damage, where one can shoot the players' feet and do damage.
  • This gun is not suitable for close combat since this weapon's area damage can hit you and damage you.
  • Its conjunction of average fire rate, instant area damage, medium-high capacity and ability to headshot is capable of scoring multiple kills.
    • Pair this with Jetpack and throw Singular Grenade, you can rain down shots from above.
    • It could be the most useful rocket jump weapon, because you can also kill players with this, besides the Black Hole.
    • As of the Gallery update, this is no longer the case as weapons were reworked.
  • Due to instant projectile speed, this may be an effective counter for mid-range jet packs or other players rocket jumping.
  • Take advantage of the "Burning" attribute, as it may finish off a weakened opponent if survived the first headshot.
  • Obtain this rifle when you reached Level 65, as you do not need to spend anything to upgrade.
  • It can 1-2 shot if the enemy is hit in the head or body, and it can 3-4 shot if the area of effect hits the enemy,

Counters

  • Use a Wallbreak weapon while taking cover
  • Keep in mind that this gun's projectiles are linear, not homing. So using a Jetpack may prove to be very useful against these users.
  • This gun has a burning effect, but the Cyber Santa Avatar will forestall that.
  • Flamethrower weapons like the Frozen Dragon and Gas Launcher Up1 can easily defeat its users.
  • Using Melee weapons may also prove effective against it, since the Eva is a mid/long-range weapon.
  • Using Eva yourself as a last-ditch effort if all else failed.
