—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Laser Cycler is a Backup weapon introduced in the 16.7.0 update.

Description

It is a digital themed pistol that fires a light blue laser that can do ricochets and can slow down affected targets. It has good damage, a medium fire rate, a good capacity, and slow mobility. It is 2 shot headshot and 3 shot body shot.

Appearance

It appears to be a blaster type weapon that's mostly black with blue details. It has a TRON look. On each side of the gun, it says "CEO".

Performance

The weapon is held by the player's right hand. It shoots a circle and then a light blue laser at a moderately fast speed and has the ability to slow down a target, pierce through enemy players, and ricochet off of surfaces. On the top of the weapon is a light blue ring which represents the scope, its magnification is 2x zoom.

The laser it shoots has instant travel time and is coupled with 12 bullets per magazine. When the player spawns, they are given two extra magazines. When reloading, the magazine on the bottom right (if the barrel is facing to the left) is taken out and replaced with another magazine.

It receives a delay on some weapons that are associated with Three Category Spam like the Sniper Exoskeleton and the Reflector, after them being shot.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this in hallways since this weapon has the Ricochet and Piercing Shot attribute.
  • Use this weapon in close to medium range as this weapon does not perform well for long range.
  • Switch to any weapon with 80 or higher mobility as this weapon does not have the best mobility.
  • Use the slowdown as a advantage.
  • The Laser Cycler can be used in Three Category Spam, or otherwise known as Three Cat Spam or Quick Switching, without any delay to certain weapons.
  • There is a glitch, it isn't bannable but it will eventually be fixed, it is known as 'The ricochet glitch'. This glitch allows the user to one shot the opponent no matter what if it ricochets from the floor directly to the sky upon firing, but performing this is tricky as you need to know where you are going to hit.
  • Try to hit people with the ricochet because that will do significantly more damage.

Counters

  • Attack the user from long range, but keep in mind that this weapon can be used for long range if the user is skilled enough.
  • Attack the user with area damage weapons.
  • Outrun the user with an 85 mobility weapon.
  • Strafe around the enemy to waste their ammo as this weapon's fire rate isn't the fastest.
  • Stay away from tight corridors.

Recommended Maps

Medium-ranged maps such as Area 52 is recommended. Ice Palace has many corridors so that would be a recommended map as well.

Equipment Setups

Equip any long-ranged weapon as this weapon isn't the best for long-range.
