The Tide Bracers is a Backup weapon introduced in the 17.7.0 update.

Description

It is a green, fish-shaped pistol that shoots blue projectiles. It has good damage, a semi-automatic fire rate, a good capacity, and decent mobility.

Appearance

This weapon resembles a fish with its mouth wide open with what appears to be some kind of barrel in its mouth. The weapon is mostly green with a gold frame, with blue fins coming out from the bottom, sides, and top of the weapon. The weapon contains details of black around the weapon as well as a brown underside. It appears the weapon has a blue ball mounted on top of it by four gold pieces. When equipped, what appears to be a blue whirlpool surrounds the player at all times.

Performance

This weapon shoots 3 blue projectiles in one shot, almost semi-automatically. It has a damage sphere ability that damages nearby enemies. The blue projectiles that are shot out are 'rockets', but it doesn't allow rocket jumping.

When reloading, the player quickly takes out the blue clip from the top and puts it back. The reloading speed is pretty quick.

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