for hate's sake. – Shoots a harpoon styled projectile that sticks into a target before exploding. The projectile will curve downward steeply. Increased damage, decreased reload speed and capacity. Greatly reduced blast radius.
Usage & Description
The Ahab, while possessing a massive damage output, is limited to short to mid-range engagement due to its projectile arc and reduced blast radius, both of which make it difficult to hit a target at long range. Assassins and Sirens can increase the Ahab's usefulness at long range with the skills Vel0city and Accelerate, respectively, as this will reduce the arc over distance.
Shots fired from the Ahab still do full damage to Hyperius the Invincible and his minions while they are shielded.
This weapon can be very inaccurate from the hip and thus is likely not a good choice for Fight for Your Life for many playstyles.
The Ahab is a reference to the character Captain Ahab from the novel Moby-Dick; or, The Whale. The flavor text is also a reference to the same book from the last lines "for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee."
