Usage & Description

The Firestorm is a very powerful sniper rifle, capable of blanketing an area with waves of fire. It is best suited against large groups or slow moving enemies, as landing hits on smaller, more agile enemies is difficult. The Krakatoa is a similar weapon with comparable damage stats, but functions more like a traditional point-and-click rifle.

Fireballs move slowly and take some time to land, and if used in confined spaces they may hit a wall or ceiling and disappear.
