Description

It is a weaponized white keytar. It features high DPS, a moderate ammo capacity, and decent mobility.

Appearance

The design appears to be a keytar-like weapon as it has white and gray colors on it, both the magazine and trigger has a red color to it. There is also a small M on the left and right on the gun. It's body consists 10 music keys.

Performance

When the fire button is held, the weapon will fire a laser beam with note particles coming out of it. The beam will inflict Charm.png to any hit enemies.

When reloading, the user plays it like a keytar and will create a defensive radius on the ground around the user, damaging any enemy that is within the radius.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Killer Chord will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

It features high DPS, a moderate ammo capacity, and decent mobility.

Tips

  • Use it in very close ranges in order to kill somebody due to this being an electro-thrower weapon.
  • Go for the weakened players for better ammunition conserving, quicker kill registering and a less complicated duel.
  • One can use the damage radius when reloading as a means of defense.
    • In addition, it can also be used to counter charging melee users.
  • Jump while reloading since the damage radius is created around the feet of the user.
  • Reload frequently, so as to deal damage on those within your personal space.
  • Avoid medium and long-range areas where you will get killed easily.
  • Use it to gradually weaken targets.
  • Use this against a large group of players.
  • The weakening attribute can be used against enemies with high damaging weapons such as sniper rifles.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage and shotguns make quick work of users.
  • When an enemy holding this weapon approaches, run away and shoot it from afar.
  • Due to its short range, use a long range weapon to kill this weapon user.
  • If you are encountered within medium-range areas, quickly rush up to the enemy before getting damaged quickly.
  • Avoid getting too close to the user when they are reloading, since the defense radius could potentially kill.
  • Try to Rocket Jump away if you are caught in it's shooting radius.
