Usage & Description
The Cat O' Nine Tails is a tricky weapon designed for indirect fire. When fired against walls or floors, its ricocheting bolts scatter into many, giving it a very high damage potential compared to other blasters, at the cost of having a somewhat steep learning curve. The scattering beams are also very likely to set off any barrels in the area otherwise.
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 a target while in the air.
- The name of the weapon is a reference to the cat o' nine tails, a type of multi-tailed disciplinary whip.
