Special Weapon Effects
THE HAMMER OF HERETICS! SUBTLE HISTORICAL REFEREEEEEEENCE! – Fires three explosive projectiles in a fixed triangular spread. Each projectile produces a number of smaller, delayed explosions on impact. Consumes 1 ammo per shot.
Usage & Description
The Torguemada's fixed spread means that it is heavily inaccurate past point-blank range. However, the delayed explosions caused by each projectile allows the Torguemade to deal significant damage to stationary targets, or create "mine fields" to damage approaching enemies.
- The weapon name is a reference to Tomás de Torquemada, a prominent figure in the Spanish Inquisition.
- The flavor text refers to the Hammer of Heretics (or Witches or Evildoers), a famous medieval witch hunter's manual, whose original Latin title is Malleus Maleficarum.
