—Weapon's description in Gallery
The Ice Cream Pistol is a Backup weapon introduced in the 15.7.0 update. It can be obtained for a limited time during the Christmas holidays in the Armory.
It is an ice-cream pistol that shoots ice cream scoop projectiles. It has good damage, an somewhat slow fire rate, decent capacity, and decent mobility.
It features a light blue skeletal stock, a white-blue body with a snowflake printed on the side, and a large cone containing three scoops of ice cream acting as the ammo for the weapon.
The player, holding this pistol in one hand, will shoot multiple, light yellow ice cream scoop projectiles with area damage and a somewhat slow bullet travel time for every time the player shoots the gun.
The weapon shoots 6 burst shots , then reloads. While reloading, at first, the ice cream part of the weapon is turned on 360°, then, the magazine is taken out and another one is put into a weapon. After that, the new magazine is turned on 360° too and you can shoot again. The reload animation is 2 seconds long. It has no delay mechanics.

- Flank around the user then use a Melee weapon to deal quick damage and then pull back.
