The PGA-01 Living Rifle is a Primary weapon introduced in the 18.2.0 update.
This is a Halloween themed Primary weapon that has purple, light green, white, and beige colors on it. The weapon has fairly high damage, high fire rate, Somewhat low capacity, and an average mobility.
The weapon appears as a battle rifle covered in some goo-like/creature thing/substance. The rifle itself is flat dark earth and features a black body. However, the exterior of the rifle seems to be inhabited by a purple, sentient goo.
There are green growths on the top of the gun and on the magazine. It bears seemingly normal moving eyes on the left and right and there is a tag with the number "1" written on it clipped to its underside. The creature's teeth are visible below the barrel of the gun, and what appears to be saliva drips down occasionally.
Black particles surround the user when they hold this weapon, representing its damage sphere that poisons any enemies that enter the sphere.
When the trigger is pulled, the weapon will fire purple hitscan bullets with instant bullet travel time.
While reloading, the magazine is taken out and then put back into the weapon at the bottom. The reload animation is about 2 seconds long.
It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the PGA-01 Living Rifle will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.
