Usage & Description
The Cat O' Nine Tails is a tricky weapon best used in indirect fire. When fired against walls or floors, its ricocheting bolts scatter into 9 projectiles, giving it a high damage potential compared to other blasters, at the cost of having a somewhat steep learning curve.
Gladiators taking advantage of Maelstrom can potentially wield this weapon to great effect, particularly against groups of targets. When used properly, it can accumulate 100+ stacks of Maelstrom nearly instantly, and maintain 200+ by the time its magazine has been emptied. Its ricocheting effect is also extremely powerful in conjunction with Smite, greatly easing the difficulty of hitting an airborne target.
The name of the weapon is a reference to the cat o' nine tails, a type of multi-tailed disciplinary whip.
