The Rebel is a Backup weapon introduced in the 19.0.0 update.

Description

It is a cyberpunk-themed pistol that acts like a shotgun. It deals a great amount of damage, this is paired with a good mobility, average fire rate, and decent capacity

Appearance

It is a neon purple and green pistol, with traces of blue, red, white, and yellow. The top of the weapon has a neon mohawk, and a purple magazine underneath with the anarchy symbol spray painted in green.

Performance

When the fire button is pressed, the user will fire a spread of pellets that will inflict Burning.png to enemies.

When reloading the player removes the used magazine and replaces it with another one. While reloading the player will be surrounded by a neon blue and purple aura, surrounding players within the damage radius.

It receives delay from any weapon that gives delay like Prototype and Anti Champion Rifle.

Strategy

Tips

  • Like any shotgun, it is best to use this weapon at close range.
  • The weapon excels at close quarters combat, making it an effective weapon in tight hallways or spaces.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Reload this in a group of enemies to deal damage to them all.
  • This can be used as an effective means in defending against melee users. Fire while aiming center mass or the head while backpedaling.
  • The weapon features high mobility, meaning it can be used to travel between point-to-point quickly.
  • Try flanking around enemies while firing at them from their blindspots, this is effective in close quarters maps such as Pool Party.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns make quick work of users.
  • Strafe while jumping to avoid getting hit.
  • Try wasting the ammo of the user, leaving them vulnerable from an attack when they are reloading.
    • However, do not get too close when they are reloading due to the weapon's DealsDamageDuringReloading.png attribute.
  • Flank around the user then use a melee weapon to deal quick damage and then pull back.
  • It is deadly to attack head-to-head against users at close range. Instead, try flanking around the user and attack them from their sides.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Use a solid primary for medium range, such as the Secret Forces Rifle, and a powerful sniper for long range, such as the Heavy Sniper Rifle.
