The Madjack is a unique revolver manufactured by Maliwan.

Examples are on the talk page.

Special Weapon Effects

Fools! They called me maaaad! – Bullets zig-zag and ricochet. Increased fire rate and Damage.

Usage & Description

The Madjack is an explosive revolver with shots that ricochet and zigzag. This is usually considered a weakness compared to normal bullets, as the shots have a tendency to miss their targets, even when the gun is correctly targeted. There are scenarios where the ricochet is useful though, for example, by shooting the ground in front of a spiderant, it is possible to score a critical hit with the ricochet.

The strengths of the Madjack are two-fold: it has substantially increased damage, and a huge fire-rate increase. Some Madjacks can fire with a rate of up to 4.4.

The style of play the Madjack warrants is more of a spray & pray style: Because of the inaccuracy of the bullets, players are left relying on the sheer amount of bullets the Madjack can fire to land their shots. At short range, particularly against large targets, the inaccuracy of the gun is somewhat negated. The wild trajectories of the shots can even score hits the player didn't aim for.

Mechanics

The Madjack effect comes from both the MadJack_barrel3 barrel and the MadJack_acc5_Explosive accessory. MadJack_acc5_Explosive is nearly identical to acc5_Explosive, with a slightly elevated chance of mid-sized explosions. MadJack_barrel3 is based on barrel3, but provides more damage and a higher fire rate. It is not clear which part is responsible for the zigzag effect. The Madjack always spawns with sight1 and mag1. The material used for the Madjack is MadJack_Material, which is almost equivalent to Material_Maliwan_2. Please see stat modifiers for an explanation on how to interpret all of these modifiers.

Notes

  • The Madjack drops from One-Eyed Jack. Madjack can be successfully farmed, because One-Eyed Jack is a respawning boss.
  • Due to its unique material, the Madjack is the only Maliwan weapon without the listed increased chance of elemental effect, though its tech gives it the equivalent to that of a Blue/B Maliwan weapon, i.e. Higher elemental chance. This material will reflect iridescent pink and purple hues off of the weapon's body when carried into direct, "natural" light.
