Tips

  • Use this weapon as a both as a offense and as a defense weapon due to its high efficiency per second and an armor bonus.
  • This weapon is ideal for non-accurate players because it is a spray-and-pray behavior with its fire rate and capacity. You can afford to miss shots with this weapon.
    • On the flip side, this burn its ammunition within 9 seconds if all shots did not hit an opponent.
  • This weapon can be used to counter some other primaries from its efficiency.
  • Do not reload this weapon unless you are absolutely safe as this weapon have moderately-slow reload.
    • In contrast, pairing it with Cowboy Hat and Storm Trooper Cape shortens the work.
  • Use this at medium-to-close range due to lack of scope,
    • In contrast, it is useful against Jetpack users due to its tight spread.
  • You can ambush enemies at corners, catching them off-guard. They will be very close to you, allowing maximum damage and will almost guarantee a kill.
  • This is the fair few weapons that are extremely worth your buck, despite its effectiveness is heavily diminished due to a lack of upgrades,
    • If crafted at level 32, you do not need gems to upgrade.
  • This weapon is very general-purpose, allowing you to fulfill a large multitude of roles due to its high damage, a rate of fire and high magazine capacity.
    • The large ammunition supply for this weapon allows you to dominate dogfights with not much of efforts. You can shred multiple enemies at once or lay down supportive fire for teammates.
  • This weapon suffers a lot of accuracy loss at a range. Close the gap before enemy snipers can pin you down and kill you with relative ease.
    • However, its accuracy is quite moderate on long range, possibly can be used for long range if he/she is skilled at managing it.
  • This weapon will quickly lay down unarmored opponents in direct combat.
    • If possible, pack a secondary weapon to take out such users and save ammunition for tougher opponents
  • When escaping with this weapon, take into account its average mobility.
    • However its spray and pray behavior is capable of killing any heavily injured players.
  • This gun, when used in Team Battle is excellent at pinning players down due to the sheer size of its magazine.
  • Covering flaggers in Flag Capture is one of the best ways to use this weapon
  • When cornered this weapon is excellent at killing a few players before being killed yourself
  • This goes extremely well with backup weapons with a scope and its high efficiency per second to create combo kill shot.
  • Use this in close range to medium maps. For example: Pool Party as it is very useful.
  • This is a good weapon for modes such as Co-op Survival and Arena. In these modes, aim at the body of enemies and fire away. Because each hit gives 5 points, you will rapidly gain tons of points from enemies like Double Headed Zombie because of their high HP
  • This weapon is an excellent choice for fighting very mobile players
  • Aim for the head for maximum DPS and to conserve ammo

Counters

  • Stay out of close range as this weapon can take you down in matter of second!
    • Its accuracy performs poorly at long range. You should use scoped weapons against Excalibur users from long range.
  • A slowdown weapon to counter this weapon easily as its mobility is slow, render them sitting duck.
  • If in a close range fight, use area damage weapons to throw off his/her up user's aim. You can also use high-hitbox weapons to counter.
  • If all else fails, use this weapon yourself to counter the Excalibur.
  • Strafe around to avoid being hit.

Trivia

  • It looks like the reskin and a remodel of an Automatic Peacemaker that has 3 barrels instead of 4 and has blue, silver, gold and red details. However this is not the case.
  • This is the first primary weapon to have the energy shield effect, and the second weapon overall, after the Barrier Rifle.
    • Though it does not provide defence but rather than for appearance purpose.
  • Excalibur is the name of a magical sword.
    • But for some reason, it is a minigun, not a sword.
  • Its fire rate has changed slightly since its release
    • When it first came out, it have a 96 fire rate.
      • In contrast it fires at the rate of 300 rpm (5 shots per seconds).
    • In the 13.1.0 update, its fire rate became 99.
    • In the 15.1.0 update, it says it have a 98 fire rate. However, it is still 99.
  • This weapon's efficiency and its stats changed multiple time due to balancing and a bug.
    • When it was released, it was around 5-6 headshots kill with a solid 5 shots per second. Its efficiency remained identical when the Combat Level Update introduced but doubled its firerate. In addition of having capacity of 70.
    • After 15.1.0, it was nerfed to 11 headshots kill, its firerate reduced to 300 rpm short period of time and its capacity reverse to 90.
    • Shortly it was around 20 headshots kill with its 600 rpm firerate returned.
      • It got buffed to 14 on the same version.
    • In the 15.2.0, a bug occurred that render it to 6 headshots kill while retaining its 600 rpm firerate and high reload speed. It was fixed a day later.
    • Currently it is approximately 17 headshots kill.
      • For these reasons, this weapon's efficiency is extremely unstable.
  • Its price for obtaining parts via real-world currency dramatically increased to craft it if one does not have any parts from clan chests, opposed to 20 USD from pre-15.1.0 Update.
