The Raccoon with a Pipe is a Melee weapon introduced in the 16.5.0 update.

Description

The Raccoon with a Pipe is a melee weapon consisting of a raccoon with a bugle with a red cloth attached. It has excellent performance at the max level. It deals a very high amount of damage, has a good fire rate, and good mobility. It features a huge area damage radius.

Appearance

It appears to be a raccoon with a green jacket and brown pants. It is seen holding a blowing golden musical instrument, being a bugle.

Performance

The player holds this raccoon on the right hand, where the raccoon would be sitting. The raccoon carries a pipe that produces an area of effect harmful soundwaves in a melee range.

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

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this in close range as this is a melee weapon. However, the area damage is a bit bigger than most area damage melees.
  • Switch to an 80 mobility weapon as the mobility on this weapon is quite slow.
  • Continue holding the attack button in case you are surrounded by enemies.
  • Use this weapon against groups of enemies to benefit the area damage attribute.

Counters

  • Attack the user from a long-range.
  • If you must get close to the user, use a shotgun like the Witchunter, Gift Stitcher, Ultimatum, Viking, or other powerful shotguns.
  • Outrun the user with any 80 mobility weapon.
  • Jump around the user so you won't get hit.
  • Try to rocket jump when near the user to get avoid getting hit.
  • Any ranged weapons (e.g. SMGs, rocket launchers) can outfight its users.
  • If rocket jumping is not possible, try to use a gadget that allows flight (such as Jetpack) or stalls the user (eg. Sticky Candy).
  • Use a weapon that slows them down.

Trivia

  • Despite having the name "pipe" (referring to the musical instrument that the Raccoon holds), it is actually a bugle that it is holding.
  • It is currently a trend among most active members of the PG3D Community Discord to call this weapon "Lil' Rac." (alternatively spelled "Lil Racc").
  • It is one of the few weapons that are living animals (e.g. Pet Dragon, Frank Sheepone and Loud Piggy).
  • It looks slightly similar to Tom Nook from Animal Crossing except with a scout design.
