The Plague Purifier is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.8.0 update. It can be obtained from the Halloween Season Battle Pass via Mythical Gearicon.png.

Description

This is a Halloween themed Special weapon. It has high damage, a very high fire rate, low capacity, and medium mobility. It usually takes about 1-2 seconds to kill an enemy.

Appearance

It appears to be a machine pistol-like weapon with a chemical-handling tube on top of the receiver and a thick flash hider. Attached to the weapon itself is a wire that connects to a green container (with ghost-like shadows), presumably yet another ammo source.

Performance

While shooting, a green particles are coming out of the weapon which inflict your enemies Poison.png effect and pull them to you because of the GravitationForce.png attribute. While holding the gun(except the reloading time), the black ghosts are spinning in the weapon's magazine.

This weapon needs to be reloaded after shooting 30 times. At the start of reloading animation, ghosts disappear from the magazine, but then they get into the magazine back by flying to it using the tube which connects the magazine to the weapon. When all the ghosts are in the magazine, you're able to shoot again. The reload animation is 4 seconds long.

It has a fixed delay input. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Plague Purifier always has a delay lasting around a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use it like any other flamethrower, such as the Snow Storm. Only use this in close range, as it is a flamethrower.
  • Take advantage of the Gravitational Force Attribute.
  • Its poison damage is very low because the poison damage is 1/10 of the initial damage

Equipment Setups

Equip a long-range weapon and a medium-range weapon such as the Secret Forces Rifle and the One Shot. Bring an 85 mobility Melee such as Katana to traverse around the map easier.

Trivia

  • It is one of the few flamethrower-type weapons to feature the Gravitation Force attribute, the other ones being the Snow Storm, Electric Vortex, and Network Streamer.
  • It shares the firing sound of the Snow Storm if you listen closely.
  • Not including the container, the weapon itself is heavily inspired by the real-world Calico M950 machine pistol.
