—Weapon's description in Gallery
The Witchunter is a Primary weapon introduced in the 15.4.0 update.
It is a Halloween themed shotgun that shoots multiple light purple laser-like projectiles at once. It has good damage, a decent fire rate, high capacity, and good mobility.
This weapon is a reskin of the Undertaker.
It has a wooden skeletal stock with a grey butt and a black buffer tube connecting to the body of the gun. The body is mainly brown, with a white skull decal on the side of the weapon. The body also features a curved brown/grey pistol grip, a blue trigger, yellow and blue rear iron sights and a brown box magazine.
In the front of the weapon, it features a wooden handle, with grey barrels and yellow iron sight.
When fired, it releases a spray of light purple laser-like projectiles.
The weapon, shooting a large spray of light purple laser-like projectiles with instant bullet travel time, deals a great amount of damage at close range and has a high ammo capacity, higher than average mobility and fast fire rate for a Shotgun weapon.
It also has a longer range than most Shotgun weapons, and a fast reload. It will kill any armored player instantly with a headshot but with a body shot it will take anywhere between 2 - 4 shots to kill an opponent (depending on range).
When reloading, the clip from the bottom is taken out and is replaced by another one. It has no delay mechanics.
- Like all shotguns, use it at close range.
- Aim for the head to maximize damage
- Use it in close range maps, as it tends to lose accuracy (as most shotguns do) at long range.
- Use this like the Undertaker.
- Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
- If in close encounters with a user, switch to an Area Damage weapon and try to eliminate them. Keep in mind that if you're too close to the explosions, you can damage yourself.
- Avoid attacking head on if using a melee weapon, instead, flank around the user.
- Automatic weapons can prevail against its users, but try to maintain the distance.
Use this to finish players off at close range, or as a backup weapon to engage enemies up close.
- Initial release.
- Its name is possibly the reference to the 1692 Salem Witch Trials, because the witch hunters are responsible for many trials and deaths in Salem. See this for more info.
- Its name is a blend of the words "witch" and "hunter".
