The Magnetic Storm is a Special weapon introduced in the 18.1.0 update.

Description

It is a sword with a blade made of sun energy. It’s reminiscent of the Cursed Pirate. It has good damage, a rather slow bullet travel time, and moderate mobility.

Appearance

It resembles a glowing torch-like sword. The two rings on the crossguard are similar to the coils on the Star Shard and Solar Flare.

Performance

The player swings the sword shooting vertical cyclone-like flames with medium bullet speed that can pierce through enemies and burn them.

The killed enemies will explode damaging the others around it because of the KilledTargetExplodes.png attribute.

The shots also seems to have a very small Area Damage upon hitting a wall or object.\

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

Strategy

Tips

  • Use it like the Cursed Pirate.
  • Try to kill clustered enemies, as when one dies, the others will also damaged from the explosion.
  • This weapon is useful in long corridors due to it's piercing attribute.
  • Don't use this weapon at long ranges, as it has projectile travel time.

Counters

  • It has average mobility, so you could try outrun the user while dodging the projectiles.
  • It may look like a melee, but don’t be fooled. It shoots projectiles like a special.
