Introduction

The Punisher is a close to mid-range (up to 500 meters, with a 250-meter optimal range) light kinetic weapon.

Strategy

This machine gun has an effective range of 200 meters and a maximum range of 500 meters. At its maximum range of 500 meters very few bullets will hit the target decreasing its damage substantially. It can be lethal at close range but it becomes increasingly inaccurate as the range increases due to bullet spread.

It has a medium and heavy counterpart, the Punisher T and the Avenger, respectively.

All machine guns (Punisher, Punisher T and Avenger) and auto-cannons (Molot, Molot T, and Tempest) accelerate fire rate up to 1.5x its usual speed, if fired continuously for longer time than 3 seconds. The accelerated state ends if firing is stopped for more than 1 second or if the ammo is depleted.

Being one of the first weapons available to new players, it is a very common early game weapon and remains useful throughout the game. Best when used in sets, a Patton equipped with four Punishers is a very effective sustained damage dealer early in the game.

Many players eventually replace the Punishers with Magnums later on when they become available, as they can fire continuously without reload (2 shots per second), have no spread at longer ranges and can penetrate Ancile shields. However, Punishers have a longer range and a faster firing rate, which means that the weapon can still compete with Magnums should they be used. Punishers are usable in higher tiers for disabling an Ancile - due to the large area covered by the Ancile it catches almost every bullet up to 500 meters, and due to the high firing speed of this weapon the Ancile is quickly disabled. Many players still use the Punisher in the higher leagues as it is an effective shield-breaker, dealing double damage to physical shields which are very commonly seen in the higher leagues on robots such as the Bulgasari.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • High DPS in close range (300 meters or less)
  • Double damage to physical shields
  • If it fires for 3 seconds straight, it begins to fire at 1.5x the speed

Cons

  • Cannot penetrate any shield
  • Less damage at long range (although it's not bad)
  • The whole magazine needs to be empty in order to reload

Accuracy By Distance

Below is the average percentage (%) of projectiles (out of 220 rounds) that hit an enemy robot (if aimed directly at) at specific ranges.

Range Accuracy %
200 meters or less 100%
250 meters 90%
300 meters 69%
350 meters 51%
400 meters 38%
450 meters 35%
500 meters 25%

Note: The numbers shown are based on an average-sized robot being targeted. Due to this, these percentages can be higher or lower depending on the size of the targeted robot.

Trivia

  • The Punisher could have been inspired by the GAU 8 Avenger, a Gatling gun similar to the Punisher that was equipped on an A-10 Thunderbolt, or "Warthogs" – it fires 30mm rounds. This theory is supported by the fact that the Punisher used to have the GAU prefix, although this was later removed.
  • In some of the test versions the Punisher, along with the other firearm weapons, do x2.6 the amount of damage on physical shields.
