—Weapon description in the Gallery
The Pumpkin Thrower is a Heavy weapon introduced in the 8.2.1 update.
It is a purple gun that launches explosive pumpkin projectiles. It has high damage, low fire rate, low-average capacity, and low weight or mobility.
It has a black and purple base, with a green box towards the front. The green box has a pumpkin with fangs on it. It appears to load pumpkins into an inferno then fires them.
The player shoots a pumpkin that has a slow bullet travel time. The projectiles have a looping shot attribute, which means that they are shot in an arc trajectory and these projectiles leave a pumpkin-like splash radius.
When reloading, the player inserts three pumpkin projectiles from the weapon's back. It has no delay mechanics.
- Use in mid-short range battles to get easier kills.
- Don't shoot when the enemy is in mid-air. Wait until he reaches the ground.
- Blast the floor to propel yourself or an enemy player away to give yourself space away from them.
- Aim slightly upwards since this weapon has the looping shot ability.
- This weapon has a decently large hitbox, similar to the Bastion, so you may treat this similarly.

- Use fast reloading and fast fire rate weapons to tick them off while they are slowly reloading.
- Try jumping around, since this weapon has a looping shot attribute, they will have a harder time using this weapon against you.
