Notes[]

  • This weapon works similarly to Nerves Of Steel IconNerves Of Steel in the sense that you have to time your attacks to deal critical hits.
  • The base DPS is the DPS for the normal three-hit combo and not for continuing the combo with perfect timing.
  • The correct attack timing for critical hits for the third hit and onward is approximately 98bpm.
  • The first and second hit have different timings. The timing is indicated by the weapon flashing yellow and musical notes popping from the strike.
  • The third hit in this weapon's combo is considered a ranged attack and is therefore affected by ranged mutations such as Point Blank Mutation IconPoint Blank.

Trivia[]

  • The flavor text is a part of the lyrics from the song Get Rhythm by Johnny Cash.
