Shield protecting you and your allies from the enemy fire. What can be better in a teamfight? Save me from a weapon, a cheater, and 3CatSpam.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

the Sly Wolf is a Special weapon introduced in the 16.6.0 update. It is currently only obtainable through Gallery and is in an Event Set along with Brave Lion and Proud Eagle.

Description

It is a white and golden shield that shoots out an energy shield that protects the user from the front. It has a slow fire rate, a very good capacity, and slow mobility. It is 1 to 2 shots when fully charged. It has charge shot, shield, and dash attributes.

Appearance

It is a white shield with diamond and gold accents, along with a golden wolf head with light blue and orange designs on the center. It also has red color to represent the interior of the wolf's ear. The shield that it creates is a barrier of cyan-colored hexagons.

Performance

When the attack button is held down, the shield will collapse as it summons an energy shield that will protect the user from projectiles. When the attack button is let go, the user will dash at the direction of the cross-hair, damaging enemies it touches. The gauge in the middle of the screen when holding down the attack button will determine how powerful the dash attack will be, with a fully charged attack dealing the most damage. When the weapon is out of ammo, the shield will disappear and there will be red particles showing that the shield is broken.

This weapon is the single-shot system so it doesn't need to reload. It has a fixed delay so it needs a little pullout time before charging.

Strategy

Tips

  • When this is used by an ally or yourself, you or your ally should have a Healing Staff to heal the player while staying back behind the shield. This method could be very effective during Clan Raids.
  • It‘s a 1 to 2 shot kill when fully charged.
  • Use this with teammates to defend them.
  • Switch to high mobility since this weapon does not have mobility optimal enough for fleeing purposes, or spam the fire bottom to dash away.
  • It can block virtually any projectile or laser including area damage projectiles, piercing shots, and even wall-break shots. Although take note there are some weapons that can bypass it completely.(For more information, see counters.)
    • Note that it does not hold an infinite amount of capacity, so do not be comfortable to the idea that you can use the shield mode without having to reload. The capacity will be drained when blocking incoming damage and can run out, resulting in no shield.
      • This is even worse if an enemy with a more powerful weapon hits your shield.
  • Use the dash ability to do surprise attacks.
  • This weapon is extremely useful Siege since you can protect yourself and stay on the ram, giving an advantage for your team.
  • Use this when you are low on health and armor.
  • Spam this in Magic Brawl to get easy trophies and lots of kills.
  • You can deploy the shield and stay in a corner.After that,when enemy gets close, finish the enemy off with a strong weapon.

Counters

  • Attack its users from behind.
  • Move quickly with an 85 mobility weapon through the Sly Wolf's barrier then fire with a shotgun such as Ultimatum or Acid Shotgun.
    • Although this method is very risky and can get you killed.
  • Use a slowing weapon in case its users are in-dash mode.
  • Fire explosives towards its users surrounding side, so he will be hit.
  • Stay airborne or get on a wall so there will be less chance its users will hit you.
  • Fire contact detonator projectiles on the ground, especially in hallways, since users trying to charge towards you will receive damage and even kill themselves.
  • This weapon uses up more ammo the more damage is absorbed, you may spam high damaging weapons to drain it's user's ammo supply since it is limited.
  • If all else fails, use a high-damaging weapon(Rocket Launchers Work Best), and aim directly at the sly wolf user. Make sure you are face-to-face with him/her. Because the sly wolf user will not be able to change his moving direction while charging, when he charges at you, your crosshair should be still on the sly wolf user. Shoot him while he is dashing.
  • Try to rocket jump over the user and snipe them overhead.
  • Although this weapon can block virtually any projectile, including wall break weapons, there are weapons that can bypass this shield completely.
    • Combat Yo-Yo and Whip with Cake are effective counters because they have the weird AoE that can go through walls the Sly Wolf shield.
    • Use the Ice Club, because strangely enough, this weapon ignores the Shield attribute.
    • Use the Tesla Cannon to counter the Sly Wolf users, because its area of effect is large enough to penetrate through the shield.
    • Use the Gold Fever, as it summons spikes from the ground, and ignores the shield.
    • The Lance Soul Card has a large enough area damage+piercing shots, that it can kill people using this weapon with the shield on. This is one of the few weapons that have the largest area damage that is the reason why that makes it a good sly wolf counter weapon.
  • Look for the gaps e.g. between the shield and the ground.
  • Use a fast firing rate weapon such as Crystal Laser Cannon or Neutron Pulsator as it can have enough force to make the player run out of ammo quickly.
  • The Ferocious Poleaxe has a large enough area damage to hit people using this weapon.

Changelog

16.6.0

  • Initial release.

17.5.1

  • Nerfed the dash effect by adding gravity and not allowing players to glide anymore, however this does not apply to Campaign and Arena mode.

Trivia

  • It is one of the best weapons for Clan Raid.
  • It is one of the handful of weapons that involves defense, rather than just offense.
  • This is the first weapon to feature the dash attribute.
  • It is an only shield-based weapon that can block several wall-break projectiles.
  • This weapon has the biggest capacity of all the weapons at 250, beating the Cyber Laser by nearly twice as much.
  • This is similar to the Protector of Peace as it has Charge Shot, the same category (Special), and they both resemble shields.
  • The weapon is the first weapon to have the Shield attribute. The second one is the Gangsta Shield.
  • This represents Reinhardt's shield from Overwatch.
  • Prior to update 17.5.1 it could be used to glide in multiplayer modes, a Hidden strategy that involved constantly dashing to travel horizontally.
  • Before the 17.7.0 update, the weapon's ammo easily depleted with the Dragon Energy Emitter Glitch, using Necklace of the Ice King. It depleted 14 of the ammo every 0.5 seconds, which gave it a very bad downside for the weapon to get instantly killed.
