Special Weapon Effects

This is beyond science. – Increased splash damage radius. Shoots 3 sawblades that drop to the ground and move vertically in a cone. The sawblade projectiles are affected by obstacles, bumps in the terrain and gravity, and will change their course appropriately upon collision. The sawblades will explode upon hitting an enemy, or a short period of time after firing.

Description & Usage

The Boring Gun can be a challenging weapon to use due to its odd projectile pattern and spread. It is also completely ineffective against aerial enemies. However, it can kill aerial enemies that rush the player at point blank range, such as rakk. This is not recommended due to the damage it may inflict on the player, potentially crippling them. It is deadly against shielded foes such as Enforcers, rendering their held shield useless as it travels underneath. It is recommended for use at mid range.


  • The sawblade projectiles shot from this gun will always drop straight down, regardless of the direction they are shot towards.
