      • "15% bonus damage."

Synergies[]

  • Because of its hybrid nature as a melee and ranged weapon as well as it's ability to lodge projectiles in enemies it synergizes almost perfectly with Ripper Mutation Icon.pngRipper.

Notes[]

  • This is the only melee weapon to use ammo.
    • The Ferryman's Lantern Icon.pngFerryman's Lantern does not technically share this trait because only it’s secondary ranged attack in its other slot uses ammo.
  • Can be used with both melee and ranged mutations, as long as the weapon is using the corresponding melee or ranged attacks.
  • Striking enemies in melee range will not create shrapnel, despite the description.

History[]

    • 1.2: Introduced.
    • 2.4: Base DPS increased from 157 to 181.
  • Footnotes[]

    1. Due to how the game clasiffies items, in-game it is treated as melee weapon only.
