The Goo Substance Pistol is a Backup weapon introduced in the 18.2.0 update. It is part of the Object PGA-1013 "GOO" Event Set.
It is a medium-sized pistol that is powered by the black goo substance seen from other weapons in the set. It deals decent damage, paired with a moderately fast fire rate, a decent-sized ammo capacity, and decent mobility.
This backup weapon appears to be a box-type weapon with a goo monster (a retextured Green Slime) inside of the weapon. The barrel is pointing away from the goo monster inside and it looks like whatever this weapon shoots comes from the goo inside. The most abundant colors in this weapon are black, gray, orange, and cyan.
When the fire button is held down, the weapon will fire black goo projectiles in bursts. These projectiles have travel time, and upon killing an enemy, the will explode, dealing splash damage to other enemies nearby.
When reloading, the user will pet the goo monster inside.

- Try not to get too close to teammates when a user is present to minimize the risk of all of you taking splash damage when one of you gets killed.
- Like most Backup weapons, being at long ranges is effective for minimizing the chances of being hit.
- Flank around the user then use a melee weapon to deal quick damage and then pull back.
