Special Weapon Effects
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."
