—Weapon's description in Gallery
The Poseidon Trident is a Special weapon introduced in the 13.0.0 update.
It is a trident that emits water particles. This weapon deals very high damage, moderate fire rate, has a high capacity and has average mobility.
It appears to be a large trident. It has big spikes at the top, although you can’t use it as a melee weapon. It has a blue handle and is plated with some gold.
When "shooting" (actually, when swinging), it launches multiple watery particles. This particle can pierce shot through players, which means shoot through multiple players if one is behind another, for example. Moreover, this weapon gives armor bonus, ameliorating the quantity of the user's armor.
This weapon uses the single-shot system so it has no reload animation. It has no delay mechanics either.
- Try to use this weapon in groups as you may be able to kill multiple people at once.
- Always move around when using this weapon.
- Aim a bit higher than where you actually want to shoot because the weapon shoots slightly lower.
- Spam this weapon in close corridors like the Silent School or Pool Party. The projectile can hit most people if they stand close together and when they are in a corridor due to its piercing shot attribute.
- Time your shots, as this weapon does have bullet travel time.
- Aim for the head for maximum efficiency per swing.
- The shots have Area Damage, so if you miss by a hair, you will likely still damage your opponent.
- While trying to take out Jetpack or Demon Stone users, you should aim a bit higher than where they are, because they may fly higher.
- Use the Guardian. You can dodge the trident's projectiles while the Guardian attacks.
- Keeping your distance from the user and strafing is a good way to reduce incoming damage.
- Pickoff its users from long ranges.
- Use an overpowered weapon such as the Christmas Ultimatum to quickly eliminate the user.
- Use a high fire rate weapon like the Excalibur. You can overwhelm them with bullets because of the Trident's somewhat slow rate of fire.
- Keep in mind that these travel time shots are horrible at hitting Jetpackers or Rocket Jumpers. Bear in mind that, opponents can predict your movements and hit you.
- Use the Reflector (Gadget) to make he/she will be less interested in hitting you.
- Strafe around the bullets, don't try to rush in close without an efficient close range weapon, unless you attack its users from behind. This weapon performs well at close to medium range so be careful.
- Have a weapon with a higher capacity.
- This weapon could be paired with a category spam set in a medium-sized map.
- This weapon pairs great with laser snipers such as the Prototype S. If you happen to hit an opponent with the your sniper but fail to kill them, switch to this weapon quickly to finish them off.
- You can do a similar strategy with the many other heavy weapons.
- The Poseidon Trident is released.
- This weapon was nerfed to a 2 - 3 headshot kill. It was previously capable of killing players in 1 shot.
- It was buffed immensely to a 1 shot headshot. Later on, it no longer deal headshots.
- It needed 10 Mythical to be crafted.
As of 17.0.0
- It now requires 250 Mythical to be crafted, alongside the Excalibur, the Reaper, the Power Fists, the Third Eye and the Eraser.
- Its crosshair got changed into a unique one.
- This weapon along with the Excalibur, the Reaper, the Power Fists, the Third Eye and the Eraser have had their crosshairs changed to be more unique.
- This weapon has some similarities in strategy and mechanics with the Laser Spear.
- It is similar to the trident that the Greek god Poseidon used.
- When fired, the sound effects make it seem as though the trident is traveling through water, even though it is not.
