The Ice Chaser is a Primary weapon introduced in the 17.1.0 update as part of the Krampus Lottery.

Description

It is a ice themed automatic rifle that has various abilities such as MoreDamageToTheCursed.png and SlowsDownTarget.png. It has very good damage, a high rate of fire, a medium capacity, and a poor mobility. This weapon is 6-8 shots.

Appearance

This weapon appears to be a Christmas/Krampus themed weapon with a navy and teal color scheme. A Krampus skull is suited on top. There are teal icicles hanging from this weapon at the bottom.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, the weapon will fire blue bullets in full-auto. These bullets are hitscan, and will slow down targets when hit.

It has the MoreDamageToTheCursed.png attribute, which means the second shot will deal double the damage.

When reloading, the player takes out the clip and replaces it with another.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Ice Chaser always has a delay lasting around half of a second.
