This article describes the Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Hellraiser (PGW).

Aggressive colors isn't the main feature of this assault rifle. The combination of scope and great recoil will give you a super-precise tool for killing enemies.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Hellraiser is a Primary weapon added in the 8.2.1 update.


The Hellraiser is an automatic Halloween-themed assault rifle, akin to the Secret Forces Rifle. It has decent performance at the max level. It deals decent to high amounts of damage, has a high fire rate, a decent capacity, and average mobility. It features full auto and 4x zoom.


It is based on the Heckler & Koch XM8, a U.S Army prototype assault rifle from the 2000s.

It has a yellow body and handle, a striped green birdcage-style muzzle suppressor, and 4x scope, with purple grip, cheek pad, and a rubber stopper on the bottom of the handle; it also has a red magazine and collapsible stock.


This weapon automatically shoots regular bullets with instant bullet travel time. This weapon has a medium range and its 4x scope allows long-range battles. The ammo that it starts out with is 35/70. Each ammo pack gives the player 35 ammo. Maxed out, it is 35/175, so the player gets 210 ammo. This gun is quite versatile as it is effective at any range, however, it still loses some accuracy when shooting at long distances, unless if the player uses the scope.

When reloading, the magazine from the bottom is taken out and is replaced by another. It has no delay mechanics.



  • Wearing mobility increasing accessories can help offset this weapon's somewhat low mobility.
  • It is a good multi-purpose weapon for short to mid-long ranges, so you can use it to your advantage.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • The recoil of this weapon, however, is slightly uncontrollable, so try to make every shot count.
    • Due to its spray pattern, it is best used in close-ranged firefights.
  • When picking off targets from long ranges with it, shoot in short bursts to compensate for its gradually accumulating recoil.
    • It is not smart to shoot an enemy from a distance, the accuracy is horrible at medium-long ranges unless the scope is used.
      • Pair this rifle with Turbo Charger to decrease its recoil and bullet spread.
  • As this weapon has a fast firing rate, keep a watch on how fast you are spending your ammo.
  • This weapon is essentially the weaker and cheaper version of the Secret Forces Rifle. If you cannot afford the SFR from the Trader's Van, buy this instead.
  • Enemies can strafe to avoid your shots, so use a weapon that has the "Slows Down Target" attribute to counter their strafing or to simply keep them at bay while you're firing at them.


  • This weapon can be quite deadly in capable hands, it is an effective strategy to try and sneak up behind its user with a strong weapon such as a shotgun or explosive.
  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Dodge their shots so they have a hard time hitting you and waste their ammo in the process.
