Introduction

The Arbalest is a long-range (up to 1,100 meters) light energy weapon. It has a medium and heavy conterpart (Ballista and Trebuchet respectively) and can be viewed as the kinetic counterpart to the Volt.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Energy attribute allows it to pierce energy shields
  • Fast projectile speed makes it hard to miss
  • 1100m range allows it to fire from long distance
  • Quick reload

Cons

  • Single projectile means shields will soak up excess damage when destroyed
  • Ineffective against physical shields
  • Poor at sustained engagement and close range engagement
  • Its glow makes it easy to spot

Strategy

The Arbalest is a long-range plasma weapon and is the light version of the medium Ballista and the heavy Trebuchet.  It has a range of 1,100 meters and does more damage when fully charged (6 seconds for a full charge for maximum damage, 1 second if continuously fired for significantly less damage). Due to this it is advised to always wait until the weapon is fully charged before firing. This weapon can bypass standard energy shields.

The Arbalest has very fast moving projectiles and requires precise aiming.  It is comparable to the Gekko, in terms of damage type and range but with different firing mechanics. The Arbalest has higher burst damage when fully charged but the Gekko having higher sustained damage.

This weapon works best for sniping on large open maps such as Yamantau and Canyon.

This weapons works very well with the Ballista but due to different charging rates it works poorly with its heavy counterpart the Trebuchet.

  • it also shoots a small projectile, whose trajectory path is shown in blue.
  • This weapon was added on January 31, 2018.
