Tips

  • Use this weapon to weaken enemies as the damage from this weapon can take out all your armor and half of your health.
  • Use this against a group since it has area damage.
  • 3 cat spamming with this weapon is useless since it has delay, but if you prefer a cat spam weapon with short delay like this, then this might be the perfect weapon to you.
  • Use the slowdown to your advantage.

Counters

  • If you get hit, try fighting back with any one-shot weapon.
  • Area damage weapons can mess up the user's aim.
