The Watchy-Snipy is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 17.5.0 update. It is part of the Humpty Dumpty Set.

Description

The Watchy-Snipy is a sniper weapon that shoots out white explosive mines. This weapon deals high damage with moderate fire rate for a sniper, mediocre capacity and slow mobility. When maxed out, it is able to 2 shot (potentially 1) opponents.

 Appearance

It appears to be a sniper rifle with a dark purple grip, magazine release, and (bulky) barrel. It has a corn-yellow trigger, trigger guard, frame, barrel, magazine handle, barrel cover designs, and stock. It has futuristic-blue designs on the stock, magazine, scope, and barrel.

Performance

Whenever the fire button is held down, the weapon starts to shoot out explosive mines. The mines will explode after a short while or when an enemy touches it. When the weapon needs to reload, the player will take out the magazine located at the bottom and replace it with a new one. 

This weapon has Fixed Delay, which mean this weapon will need a short pullout time before shooting.

  • Note that it's Fixed Delay got removed in the 17.6.0 update.
