—Weapon description in the Gallery
The Nutcracker is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 10.2.0 update.
It is a Christmas-themed gun that shoots explosive nuts. It has good damage, a slow fire rate, low capacity, and low mobility.
It is a Christmas themed gun that has a red handle, a green muzzle, barrel, end and certain two edges of the Nutcracker's head. It has a candy-textured detail and a nutcracker's head on its back.
This weapon shoots an explosive nut with slow bullet travel time and that acts like a rocket. It leaves no trail but it leaves a medium-sized brown blast radius, showing that it has an area damage on impact.
When reloading, the player inserts a nut on the nutcracker's mouth, then the player forcefully lets the nutcracker crack it. It has no delay mechanics.
- Due to its relatively low stats, this weapon is recommended for low-experienced players. However, its upgrades can make it an extremely powerful Heavy weapon.
- Shoot projectiles when the area is crowded with enemies. It will damage many players because of its Area of Effect.
- Pick off its users with long-range weapons.
- Use the Reflector (Gadget) so that your opponent also takes damage as they hit you.
Equip a Sniper weapon to fend off of long ranged enemies.
It was removed from the Armory.
- While the armory stats do not mention this, it actually has a 4x Zoom similar to the Apocalypse (PG3D).
- The 4x zoom makes it one of the only heavy weapons with a scope/zoom function.
- Although thought to be unobtainable for recent players, a recent update made this possible to get from Event Chests.
- Any player who still owns the Nutcracker will be seen holding a Pixel Gun instead.
- This and the Evil Snowman, which is a reskin of this weapon, bear the same Christmas theme.
