The Mouse Scepter is a Special weapon added in the 17.1.0 update as part of the Mouse King set.

Description

This is a Mouse king themed Special weapon with ChargeShot.png, Poison.png and, AreaDamage.png which is the best to use in close ranges. It has very high damage, very high mobility, very high capacity, and a fairly high fire rate for a charge weapon.

Appearance 

It has a dark purple shaft with the head of the Mouse King on top. It features a green crystal on top of the Mouse King's head, in the middle of his crown.

Performance

While charging the weapon, the player will raise it up, then it will slightly go down. After firing, a ring of green energy will appear around the player, and this ring will deal damage and Poison.png effect to people who got trapped into it, also the scepter itself will quickly go down, then take its usual position. The weapon is best to use for close-ranged maps such as Colosseum (PG3D) (Multiplayer).

The weapon doesn't need to be reloaded.

The scepter has fixed delay, meaning that there's always animation of taking it out if you're switching from any other weapons (you're not able to shoot at this moment), and it can't be used for the Three Category Spam because of it.

Strategy

Tips

  • Move around while charging up the shot, to avoid getting hit.
  • Make sure you are behind cover or not out in the open while using this weapon.
  • You can hold the charge indefinitely, this is useful when waiting for targets or when the target is out of the line of sight.
    • It is possible to earn a post-mortem kill just like other charge weapons.
  • This weapon is useful for dealing damage to crowds of enemies.
  • The poison attribute is useful for dealing additional damage towards enemies, potentially killing them if one enemy's health is low enough.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage or high fire rate weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Try to wait until the user fires its charged shot, and then attack.
  • Try to avoid getting into the user's line of sight or general aiming direction.
  • Use one shot kill weapons to take them out quickly before they notice you.
