Special Weapon Effects

Now, you will rise. – Always corrosive with no Alternative Fire mode. Creates a cloud that deals constant corrosive damage upon hitting an enemy. Reduced charge time and increased fire rate.

Usage & Description

The Cloud Kill's special effect makes it a powerful weapon even against non-armored enemies, as the gun and cloud puts out significant damage output against single targets. Users can also deal chip damage against multiple targets to let the corrosive cloud do most of the work, which saves ammo and allows them to focus on other targets. Overall, it is an effective gun that can support the user through many levels after it is obtained.

The corrosive clouds can easily obstruct vision however, due to the clouds being opaque.


  • The weapon's flavor text is a reference to Maya's "And now, you will fall!" quote when getting a Second Wind.
    • The weapon's name and special effect refer to the skill of the same name.
    • The weapon's name also refers to the eponymous spellin Dungeons and Dragons. Like the weapon, the spell floods an area with toxic gas.
