On the screen it resembles a horrific ghost or girl with a cyan color. There are also 2 buttons on the bottom that are white and red with a black speaker. on the left side there is a tag with the number 6. It also looks like the Big B's Oven. On the bottom of the TV, there is a electrical outlet plug.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, the weapon shoots a grey static path with a ghost girl on the screen coming out of it. This weapon deals devastating damage being able to 2-3 shot players without modules.

When reloading, the user will pull out an energy cell from behind the TV, and insert a new one.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the PGA-06 TV will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this to mow down heavily armored players due to its high damage.
  • Due to its Area Damage attribute, it is effective for keeping Melee users away from you.
  • The path of projectiles are useful for crowd control and area denial.
  • This weapon is devastating in long corridors, so make the most of it there.
  • If an opponent survives a shot, switch to a fast-firing automatic or a high-damaging sniper to finish him/her off while the slowness effect is still effective.
  • This weapon is very effective in close quarters maps such as Pool Party or Silent School.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Area damage weapons and shotgun weapons decimate users at close range.
  • Do not try to attack its users in a linear position, since the consecutive explosions will finish you off even in a medium distance.
  • Using the Jetpack or rocket-jumping can render this weapon useless due to its limited range.
  • Try running and jumping while attacking to avoid getting hit by the user's attacks, especially from the area damage attacks.
  • If attacked from behind, escape from the user while firing back at them.
  • Keep jumping to minimize the damage taken when the user attacks.
  • Flank around the user and attack from their sides, so he will have a hard time trying to retaliate you.
  • Use the Reflector (Gadget) to make your opponent take damage as they hit you with this weapon.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

This weapon is effective at close range, thus weapons such as the Reflector or the Ultimatum work well.

Trivia

  • It functions similarly to the Ice Club as both weapons has almost the same fire rate and same attributes (ConsecutiveExplosions.png and SlowsDownTarget.png). The only difference being that this weapon has to be reloaded and lower mobility.
  • This weapon is a strong reference to the The Ring movie franchise with the ghost highly resembling Samara.
  • Its overall design is similar to the Big B's Oven, as both are large electrical appliances with wires at the back and are held in similar ways.
  • It is effective to use in the block crash mini game as it destroys about 10-15 blocks per shot
