—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Witchunter is a Primary weapon introduced in the 15.4.0 update.

Description

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.

Appearance

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.

Performance

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.

Strategy

Tips

  • 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.

Counters

  • 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.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Use this to finish players off at close range, or as a backup weapon to engage enemies up close.

  • Initial release.

Trivia

  • 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".
