First Appearance

Cluck of the Dark Side

Riddler is a weapon introduced in Cluck of the Dark Side.

Strategy

It accelerates superheated metal shrapnel to near light speed, which hits enemies instantly. At low power levels, damage is diffused over a wide area, but becomes more focused as power level increases. As a bonus, this weapon generates very little heat, allowing you to fire it in long bursts.

It's available from Chapter 3.

Pros

  • Rapid automatic firerate.
  • Best manual firerate.
  • Instantly hits enemies.

Cons

  • Terrible accuracy at low power levels.
  • Moderate damage.

Trivia

  • Before 0.40BETA, its Gift's color was dark red.
