Introduction

The Trident is a mid-range (up to 600 meters) heavy rocket weapon. It has a light and medium counterpart (Pin and Tulumbas respectively) and can be viewed as the slow-firing counterpart to the Avalanche, and medium-range conterpart to the Exodus .

Strategy

This weapon functions similarly to the Pin and Tulumbas, being a mid-range rocket launcher with reload while firing mechanism. However, the Trident has a longer range of 600 meters and more than double the damage per salvo.

The Trident is able to deliver incredible damage with the splash damage effect, allowing enemies with the Ecu shield or enemies hiding behind cover to be damaged. This, coupled with its 600 meters range allows the Trident to be a good anti-shield robot weapon. Because of this, it was very popular in the higher leagues, being a great counter to Lancelots and Rhinos, which were then meta. After receiving a buff in Update 4.5, it is becoming increasingly common as it is much more useful as a counter to the Bulgasari, which also has a physical shield.

The missiles need to make contact with the enemy robot to deal damage (or hit a nearby obstacle) or else they will continue to fly to their maximum distance before exploding.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Splash attribute allows it to penetrate physical shields
  • Huge damage per rocket
  • Quick reload for such tremendous damage
  • 600-meter range allows it to engage in mid-range gunfights
  • Can essentially hit multiple enemies at once with long splash radius
  • Reload-while-firing attribute allows it to reload at any given time

Cons

  • Ineffective at close range against specialized brawling weapons
  • Ineffective against energy barriers
  • Rather long reload in general
  • Not aiming right is very bad because of its long reload

Trivia

  • A trident is a three-pointed spear used as a weapon by Poseidon, the Greek god of the seas, likely from where the gun's name was derived, due to its ability to fire three rockets, like the three spear points of the Trident.
  • Pre update 2.5, the name prefix “HRS” stood for Heavy Rocket System.
  • Before the model change in 4.5, while reloading, it was possible to see each of the 3 missiles being set into position on a revolver. When being fired, the revolver would spin, with each missile being visibly shot out of the weapon.
  • According to information on older vk.com page for WWR, back in the 2015 year there was a "propose your own weapon" event, and a "revolver-like missile weapon" won the event. After some period, the prototype for a Trident was born, but the initial model was scrapped. However, there is at least one picture of a developer working on early "revolver-like missile weapon" model, which may be the Trident.
