The Bazooka Shotgun is a Heavy weapon created by MatthewGo707. It is a Shotgun counterpart of Armageddon.

Appearance Edit

It is the yellow and red textured shotgun with the flame emblem on its cartridge and with the useless scope.

Strategy Edit

It has astronomically devastating damage, good rate of fire, bad capacity and good mobility. IT IS CAPABLE OF A 1-HIT KILL.

Tips Edit

  • Avoid close-range combat, as this gun is best suited for medium/long-range combat, and the rockets take some time to travel.
  • After each of the rockets hits the entity or object, it leaves the massive radius of fire that lasts for 10 seconds.
    • If the enemy tries to cross over the said ablaze ground, he will suffer the burning effect, eventually easily wasting him away.
  • Its looks may fool you that it is a low-range weapon, but the most overarching feature of this weapon is that it can easily kill enemies regardless of the range due to its larger blast radius and colossal damage.
  • This gun's blast radius is extremely massive.
  • DO NOT TRY TO ROCKET JUMP WITH THIS WEAPON, since it is guaranteed an instant kill on all entities.
  • It comes with frightening area damage that lobs out explosives on impact, hitting a wall can rain explosives onto the ground. Overall, a very forgiving weapon.
  • Use this weapon to encounter Ghost Lantern users
  • Spam-fire to get points.
  • Use this in larger area to take advantage of its ability to shoot 16 rockets (being a shotgun), laced with the freaky danage that no one can imagine.
  • Useful for taking down enemies using the shield.
  • Use this to mow down heavily armored players due to its high damage.
  • If there's an enemy player close to you, use it as distraction because this will cause players to stay out of its blast radius, leaving time for an escape.
  • Use this weapon against highly mobile players due to its fast projectiles
  • This weapon can be useful while airborne
  • Despite being a shotgun, this is useful against airborne players as well
  • Use this to kill the player that used the Resurrection gadget.
  • Never be fooled by its inferior range, as the larger area damage can easily aids the user who cannot shoot accurately.
  • Take advantage of its faster projectiles as this feature can make this a kamikaze weapon.
  • Use this weapon when dealing with multiple players
  • The weapon is useful for guarding choke points, hallways, and specific points on the map, especially in Point Capture and Flag Capture maps.
  • This is best used in Block Crash as this can easily down many enemies at once.
  • Do not worry about players bunny-hopping trying to evade you, as this weapon's projectiles deals massive area damage, twice the size of the Nuclear Grenade's.
  • This is an excellent weapon for slaughtering enemies when you are using the jetpack.
  • Use this to destroy the Barrier Rifle's energy shield and block the enemy's projectiles.
  • Aim at the ground near the enemy to ensure that it will hit them unless they tend to jump and move a lot.
  • Its super-OP damage or knockback can be used to pick-off the enemies in a variety of ways.
  • Melee users are vulnerable on your projectiles. They can be easily killed when there are nearby hazards using its knockback or depending on their armor and skills. Try to kill them quickly as possible especially when they are wielding the Storm Hammer.
  • It can easily mow down heavily armored players with ease.
  • It is an ideal weapon to hit enemy armor hard.
  • It can be more effective against groups of enemies, as the explosive shotgun shells have the devastating damage.
  • Use this to severely damage the group of max-armored players with ease or when the enemy is bunny-hopping.
  • Use this weapon against fleeing Dark Force Saber users.
  • Just like the Big Buddy UP2, use the Singular Grenade to pull more enemies, and swarm them.
  • Never be fooled by its being a shotgun, as each could deal devastating damage even on Snipers.
  • Not recommended for rocket-jumping, for this weapon is a one shot kill for every entity, and the user.
  • This is excellent in Arena as each rockets deals the devastating damage to the enemies. So, to increase is effectiveness, surround the enemies to at least 5 or more (preferably with the Singular Grenade) and then swarm them with rocket pellets in point-blank range.
  • This is best used as a crowd controller, due to its massive damage.
  • This is best in wreaking chaotic situations against many enemies.
  • It is very possible to get many killstreaks with this weapon.
  • This weapon is powerful when combined with Stealth Bracelet, as the user can utilize invisibility to slaughter enemies.
  • Very useful for spamming.
  • This can be used for spawn trapping enemies, or for camping uses.
  • Very useful in taking down enemies in Team Strike.
  • Use this weapon to perform banzai attack on large groups of enemies due to each of its rockets dealing the colossal damage.
  • Its colossal damage allows you to pwn ALL bosses in Campaign and Arena in a single fire.
  • This weapon is best used in Inside the Code, since this requires less skill and little to no aiming.
  • It is more effective when attacking groups of enemies to take full advantage of the area damage.
  • Its rockets have the area damage effect, so taking out a group or team of enemies makes the weapon's rockets more effective when in use.
  • Try to aim at the ground near enemies so they can't easily avoid the rockets.
  • Do not stand still when racking many kill streaks.
  • You can fiercely blast over 10 enemies and even snipers (due to its semi-instant travel time) at once due to its ability to shoot 16 rockets per fire, hence being a shotgun.
  • You can hit the ground spot that is near your opponent because this has area damage.
  • Make each shot count by aiming at the ground near the enemy or at its legs. The splash damage can catch enemies unaware even if you miss.
  • This weapon is not affected by gravity, so lead shots and burst at longer-range opponents.
  • Use this weapon to pick off weakened targets.
  • If the player is attacking with the Bazooka Shotgun in short range, the player should be careful as to not inflict self explode damage.
  • Spam the weapon.
  • You can easily dominate the fire fights as this has quite devastating damage.
  • Use this to heavily weaken (or even destroy) enemy Mechs or Turrets.
  • This weapon is godly on Point Capture, as the horizontal explosions and its ability to fire 16 rockets per fire (being a shotgun) can cause entire point wipes at times, and the 30 efficiency can deal with players easily. This can kill players with the max gear in one go per rocket it fires.
    • This is also true for Block Crash.
  • The users of the Cyber Santa Avatar WILL NOT survive from each of the rocket onslaughts raining towards them, so use this as your advantage.
  • This weapon deals ultimate regardless of the range or in maps like coliseum and silent school, as other players have almost no chance to dodge those bullets.
  • Just as you do in Multiplayer, it deals ultimate regardless of the range in Arena, as enemies and bosses have almost no chance to dodge those bullets.
  • This is useful for countering the Christmas Ultimatum users with ease due to its faster travel time, since the latter has medium speed.
  • Ussful for targeting players with Bullet-Proof Vest due to its ultimate damage.
  • You can try to pair this weapon with the Jetpack gadget since this weapon has faster travel time, it will be deadly.
  • Exploit this gun's area damage by using the Singular Grenade to cluster people together and blow up all of them.
  • This weapon has a moderately slow fire rate so one has to do the quick swap exploit if one misses their shot.
    • However, this exploit got fixed in the 12.5.0 update, where this weapon, if fired and the user switches back into it, there is a cool down to fire another shot.
  • Swarm its rockets to many groups of enemies to increase the mayhem.
  • One spreadrocket/barrage from this weapon will instantly kill enemy players, IF you could manage to kill them regardless of the range.
  • In Siege, use this weapon when multiple enemies are blocking the ram.
  • The burning effect for this weapon is very effective, so fire its projectiles on the ground while you are up in the air (so as to prevent self-explosion damage).
  • Use this against a large group of players.
  • Use the burning effect to weaken enemies, then finish them off with a high damage weapon.
  • This gun pairs very well with the Jetpack, as you can fly above everyone and rain shots down in everyone from above. Just be careful around homing weapons such as Smart Bullet Bazooka or Swarmer.
  • This gun's fire rate is decent, so it can kill multiple enemies before reloading. However, try timing your shots to be more efficient in killing enemies.
  • Use the Singular Grenade to suck enemies together and make use of this gun's area damage.

Counters Edit

  • Using long ranged weapons will allow you to easily snipe these users, however, be mindful that a skilled player could still hit you from that range.
  • Pick off its users from long ranges, but beware that if the user have learned how to use it anywhere, you will not be able to counter.
  • Its projectiles block all projectiles infinitely, making these projectile an additional shield for the user, so use a wall-break weapon to get around such a defense.
  • Stay away from the user's sight or you will be blitzed by its users
  • Get the weapon at least the mobility of 130 if the rockets are heading towards you
  • Avoid being caught in the radius of the rocket.
  • Attack the user when reloading.
  • Do noy use this weapon if you are playing PG3D on your old phone, since there will be high tendency of lagging.
  • Avoid even playing on maps like Silent School or Pool Party due to the projectiles having abnormally devastating damage and large area damage.
  • Avoid friendly fire between teammates, as this can disorient your teammates.
  • Attack from behind.
  • Do not make melee attacks against its users as they will unexpectedly fire at you, making an escape impossible.
  • Due to the slow firing rate, use a high-speed weapon such as the Dual Machine Guns to shoot its user.
  • Avoid crowding when one encounters a user. As this weapon is an exceptional crowd controller.
  • Try to avoid the rockets as much as possible.
  • Avoid engaging its users in close-range fights. This is a good way not to be pushed into hazards or being toasted by the rockets.
  • Avoid hallways when users are wielding this weapon like this one due to its high damage output and larger area damage.
  • Staying airborne can lessen the risk of being hit, but be wary of the 16 rockets that is shot in a single fire, making escape almost impossible, combined with the large area damage each rockets impose.
  • Avoid being in groups with friendly targets. As single rocket can lead into devastating damage or unexpected deaths.
  • After the opponent fires, use an automatic weapon, like the Hellraiser, to easily headshot the opponent until he/she dies.
  • Avoid being in a group especially in Team Battle. Due this weapon has a slightly medium area damage and has quite devastating damage.
  • It might not help to have a wall behind you, as the splash damage could hit off the wall and strike you.
  • If the player sees a user firing at them from a distance, be warned that it is guaranteed a one shot kill.
  • It is recommended to use double jump boots and other wear that makes you jump higher. However, despite this, you should be far from its users as they can take advantage of its larger blast radius, making escape semi-impossible.
  • Do not get cramped into the hallways of Silent School or Pool Party, as they are extremely hard to avoid.
  • The effect of the Love Spell will not work, unless you care about dewling damage.
  • Attack its users with Sniper weapon, but be aware of its bullet's semi-instant travel time.
  • No shotgun stands a chance at winning a direct firefight with this, especially since ultimate damage and area damage skyrockets its time to kill, range and mobility will take care of most players.
  • In close range use shotguns or flamethrowers to easily counter users, as hopefully they won't be dumb enough to bomb themselves at close-range. But be aware that you can get killed by its users.
  • Do not walk into the bullets, as the blast radius is quite large and lasts for a good duration.
  • Be aware that this weapon can still prove to be highly effective in long ranges due to its area damage.
  • Never try to use the Jetpack to take down a Bazooka Shotgun user, since there are extremely skilled users that can kill you with it from very long distances even if you move in a random pattern, and that it requires no aiming to take you down, no matter how far, be it most farthest or not.
  • If you see anyone wielding this gun, be sure to stay clear, jump and evade, retreat or take cover. The full barrage of the at least one or more spread rocket shot WILL be able to kill you.
  • Keep in mind that this weapon is ONE SHOT KILL, so stay away from them at all costs. Strafe around to reduce your chances of being hit.
  • To avoid taking damage, try to strafe-fire, while also staying out of the burning radius.
  • Keep in mind that this gun's projectiles are linear, not homing. So using a Jetpack may prove to be very useful against these users.
  • When its projectiles explodes, it leaves a massive pool of fire, so make sure to stay away from where its rockets explode.
    • The pool of flame is very lethal and is able to kill even a maxed armor player easily if they're not careful.
    • The pool of flame is also able to kill the person who fire this weapon, so attempt luring them into the pool of flames.
