Usage & Description
The Cat O' Nine Tails is a tricky weapon best used in indirect fire. When fired against walls or floors, its ricocheting bolts scatter into 9 projectiles, giving it a high damage potential compared to other blasters, at the cost of having a somewhat steep learning curve.
Gladiators taking advantage of Maelstrom can potentially wield this weapon to great effect, particularly against groups of targets. When used properly, it can accumulate 100+ stacks of Maelstrom nearly instantly, and maintain 200+ by the time its magazine has been emptied. Its ricocheting effect is also extremely powerful in conjunction with Smite, greatly easing the difficulty of hitting a target while in the air.
- The name of the weapon is a reference to the cat o' nine tails, a type of multi-tailed disciplinary whip.
