The Poisonous Grasshopper is a Special weapon introduced in the 17.4.0 update.

Description

This is a high-damaging Alien themed weapon that has purple, red, pink, and green colours in it. This weapon has high damage, average mobility, medium capacity and medium mobility.

Appearance

It appears to be an alien-like grasshopper in the shape of a gun. It has pink/purple/red body with a blue pistol grip, a pair of green antennae at the front, and yellow/green eyes with black pupils behind the "mouth" of the weapon. It also features a green magazine at the bottom of the weapon, and a green foregrip at the front of the weapon.

Performance

The weapon has high damage. It shoots orange-green projectiles that ricochet and bounce off the solid objects. After bouncing some time, if projectiles didn't hit any enemies, they will lie on the ground. If an enemy touches it, it will explode and deal some damage to opponent with the Poison.png effect. If projectiles don't hit the enemy directly, with ricocheting or like mines, they will just disappear. While shooting, the weapon's paws (located on its highest part) are going up and down and the eye on the weapon is opening and closing.

While reloading, the magazine is taken off and the eye on the weapon is slowly turning from one side to other. Then, it's put back. The reload lasts for 2 seconds.

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

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this in short ranges for definite kills.
  • Use the Ricochet.png attribute to your advantage in corridors.
  • Use this to spawn-trap opponents, using the PoisonMines.png attribute to your advantage.
  • Use this like you would the Instigator (better yet, the Toxic Bane due to similar fire rate).
  • Avoid using this at long range due to Looping Shot.
  • This weapon works best in narrow compartments or hallways.

Counters

  • Attack from far behind and snipe the opponent from there.
  • Rush the user with a fast-firing shotgun or flamethrower.
  • Be wary in long corridors or narrow hallways, where these users are extremely likely to be present.
  • Kill the users at long range due to this weapon's inability to perform the same action.
