Do you think it's a toy? Not at all! It is a horrifying weapon to those who have just gotten a flu vaccine or wear woolen sweaters.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Water Pistol is a Backup weapon introduced in the 9.1.0 update.

Description

It is a metallic pistol that shoots water bubbles. It has normal damage, a high rate of fire, average capacity, and decent mobility.

Appearance

The front of the weapon has a gold and light grey body with a small water container at the back of it surrounded by a gold ring, a gold, and light grey handle, a gold meter showing the pressure of the water, three gold rings surrounding part of the muzzle, a bronze muzzle, and a black aiming tip.

Performance

This weapon shoots high pressure water bubbles from its nozzle. These bubbles have a slow bullet travel time. These bubbles also have area damage on impact dealing damage to enemies that were hit.

When reloading, the player takes out the water canister from the back of the weapon, then they put another one in. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • Aim near the feet to maximize the Area Damage.
  • Use this weapon up close, as the droplets are slow-moving projectiles.

Counters

  • Avoid getting hit by strafing around the enemy.
  • Use a weapon with a higher fire rate.
  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Have a weapon with longer range, in case of an engagement between a sniper.

  • If you pay close attention, the pressure gauge on the middle-right side changes when shooting and reloading.
  • In reality, water guns deal no damage at all to any living thing or anything in general. However, this may be due to the fact that this is a summer-themed weapon and having a fairly expensive weapon deal poor damage would not be appreciated by the community.
