—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Little Cthulhu is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 13.2.0 update.


It is a fancy squid that shoots a green splash radius. With great power, medium fire rate, large capacity, and a average mobility, the Little Cthulhu becomes devastatingly powerful when used professionally.


This weapon is a reskin of the Mr. Squido, previously unlocked at earlier levels. The weapon takes on the features of the mythical monster  "Cthulhu"   The weapon has a green tone and a yellow top hat. It appears to have a red furious-looking eyes, black and white teeth with 2 white fangs sticking out, and 6 lime colored tentacles with white spots on each one.

When reloading, you put a red coin into the top hat and you shoot a green beam that explodes into a green mist upon impact with any surface.


This creature, held on the player's right hand, shoots a poisonous splash radius with instant bullet travel time. With not having any zoom, it becomes slightly hard to kill players across the map. But the area damage makes it highly powerful for mid to close-range combat.

When reloading, a coin is inserted into the squid's hat, which is an unusual reload animation. It has no delay mechanics.


  • This weapon is very strong against targets in medium-range, so using this weapon in a small map like Pool Party is a very good Strategy. This weapon does not have a scope, so it is advised to not use this weapon at long ranges.
  • Although this weapon can allow you to perform rocket jumps, it is not recommended to do a rocket jump with this weapon, since this weapon can severely damage you in the process unless you are in Arena or Campaign. Also, rocket jump with this weapon is significantly worse compared to some heavy weapons, such as the Killer Whale.
  • Use this with the Singular Grenade to kill multiple enemies.
  • Use this with the Jetpack for hard aiming for others and for good aiming with this weapon.
  • In arena, use it to take out those OP ranged units and run with a dark force saber, then use a solar power cannon (or anything similar to it) to destroy those melee monsters.


  • Try to snipe players with this weapon at long range with high-scope snipers like Anti-Champion Rifle, since this weapon doesn't have a scope, which makes aiming for far-away targets very hard.
  • Melee or Shotgun Weapons can also be good counter to this weapon, since this weapon requires some distance between the target to be used effectively and without harming the player themselves.
  • Use double jump/higher jump accessories, and jump all around, as this weapon is quite hard to aim at opponents at the air. The jetpack is also good choice to counter it.
