This article describes a gadget. If you're looking for the weapon see Reflector (Weapon).

The Reflector is a Tools gadget introduced in the 11.1.0 update.

Appearance

It appears to be a green bracelet with cyan and teal highlights, and a white shield icon on the bracelet's screen. When used, it shows a digital bubble shield around you, like the one on the Barrier Rifle. However, from the outside, it looks like three shield logos surrounding the player.

Performance

It reflects damage, for example, if a person shoots you while you are equipping the reflector, the bullets reflect back to the offensive enemy at 50% damage. The effect lasts for a while and can be increased by upgrading.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this when being attacked by players shooting with highly efficient weapons. A reflected Big Buddy (PG3D), Anti-Champion Rifle, Ice Club and Combat Yo-Yo shot can be devastating for the attacker.
  • Take note that you get only the weapon kill count if you manage to kill enemies with this gadget. Thus, you cannot earn a score when killing using this gadget.
  • It is useful when you are about to get hit by the snipers from afar since snipers will be damaged while they hit you, but take note that they receive 50% damage.
  • It can be used as a deadly counter against three category spammers since they will be inflicted 50% damage recoil from their weapon if you are under this gadget's effect.
  • Remember that the duration is only 8 seconds and the cooldown is 40 seconds, so only use it in difficult situations. (such as being crowded by enemies)
  • Since most monsters have melee attacks, it is best using this gadget in multiplayer modes rather than PvE modes (Arena, Co-op Survival, etc.).
  • Useful against those wielding a powerful (or even one-shot kill) weapons, since they can be inflicted 50% of the damage of their respective weapons.
  • It is useful in Flag Capture (PG3D) since it lets you take less damage, therefore increasing the chance of you getting the flag back to your base alive.

Counters

  • Try to avoid shooting or using damaging gadgets against those under the Reflector's effects to prevent having your power against you.
  • Do not use highly efficient weapons, especially when you have low health. Instead, use weapons of low efficiency.
  • Never attempt to three cat spam its users since you will just kill yourself in the process.
  • The gadget lasts for eight seconds, so do one of the three counters listed above until the Reflector wears off, then return to attacking the user.
  • People have the Reflector status when crystal shields circulate the player, so you can know when people can reflect damage. Once these shields disappear, it means the Reflector's duration has ended.
  • Use the Disabler to prevent enemies from using the Reflector for a while, leaving them vulnerable to high damage weapons.
  • Do not hit the users if you are on low health.
  • You can try getting up close and personal and attack them with a high efficiency shotgun such as Viking or Undertaker, but this is extremely risky and could get yourself killed.
  • If the opponent at least lost all their armor, use a one shot weapon to finish them off as it will kill them even if they have the reflector, but you will not take any damage because they are one shot dead.
