Special Weapon Effects

No argument here. – Always Cryo, Projectiles explode multiple times mid-flight before hitting their target.

Usage & Description

The Cryophobia is a Cryo elemental weapon where the projectile will explode multiple times throughout its trajectory until it comes into contact with something, which will cause it to explode. Where most rocket launchers are easier to hit enemies aiming at the ground near the enemy, this rocket launcher can do much more damage when aiming past enemies and allowing it more time to explode in-flight. This launcher is very effective on groups or lines of enemies, since it's hit-box is essentially a straight column until it makes contact with an enemy or wall.


  • Cryophobia is the irrational fear of the cold, or cold objects.
  • The Cryophobia has a similar flight pattern to that of the Pyrophobia and the Rhino.
