Tips

  • There are no conditions or requirements to activate the blades. The user needs to press the RMB key twice to activate the blade and then ready to be fired.
  • The blade's quantity is unlimited. However, the player can use only one blade at a time.
  • Blades can damage multiple targets in the blade radius.
  • Blades might not harm targets at certain angles.
  • Shoot the blade in confined space to damage incoming enemies.
  • The blade keeps rotating in the air if the target moves away from the blade's position.
  • Time consumption for each function:
    • Putting back the scythe after launch: 4.0 seconds.
    • Activating the scythe: 3.0 seconds.
    • Draw time: 2.0 seconds.
  • Overall time consumption for every scythe shot: 7.0 seconds.
  • The blades last much shorter if you are playing in Classic Battle modes.
  • Treat its normal firing mode like an AK-47 as the recoil will make the weapon fires up to the head if firing continiously.
  • Choose a wise moment before firing the blade on a target, as it takes time to travel from distance, the target can evade the blade easily.

  • This weapon is perfect for engaging zombies in duct areas since the blade can deal massive damage.
  • Blades cannot perform headshots in either way so use normal fire mode instead.
  • Normal fire mode can be used to finish off weak zombies.
  • Beware of using this weapon for engaging zombies in open areas since the blades do not hit the target instantly and they have no knockback or stun powers when hit.
  • When the target is being stunned or cornered, etc., take advantage to shoot the blade but don't forget to use secondary weapons to hold them inside the blade's radius, so it can deal continuous damage and kill them quickly.

  • One blade can deal above 100,000 damage to Bosses (higher than Thunderbolt) if they are inside the blade's range and the firepower level is maxed.
  • Blades can destroy barriers with ease.
  • This weapon is suitable for engaging most bosses (except Gluttony and the third phase of Kraken as they are immune to the rotating blades).
  • Blades work perfectly for space clearing.
  • Blades can protect user and teammates from incoming zombies while destroying barriers.
  • Blades last roughly 9 second. But, the wielder cannot dispatch more than one blade with the same weapon. If a player desires to do so, they must bring an "x" amount of THANATOS-7 to fire "y" number of blades.
