The Firestorm in use.

The Firestorm is a weapon added in the 5.3.0 update. It can be found in the Heavy section of the Armory. It is the first form of the Firestorm.

Appearance

It has a green skeleton stock with a large drum clip. The barrel is stubby and gray and has a foregrip is sticking out from under it. Behind the drum clip is a small handle.

Strategy

The Firestorm holds 4 grenades in the cylinder, with an additional 8 in reserve. This can be maxed out to only 12 rounds in the reserve.

Tips

  • Despite its statistics due to its low capacity, it is suggested to use on enemies with 2 or more near them.
  • Because this weapon fires in an arc (like its processor), and has a slow rate of fire, it is advised to fire this with precision and timing. Otherwise, this weapon works mildly well in combat, as it takes 2 rounds to kill the target. However, this is somewhat inaccurate, as the weapon stats declare 10 damage, which should effectively kill a player in 1 shot.
  • It is highly recommended to jump above the target and shoot the enemy in the head for a higher chance of 1 shot kill.

Counters

The 2X scope of the Firestorm.

  • This weapon has a very slow firing rate and limited range, so use a long ranged weapon, or try to use an automatic weapon.
  • At combat, make use of the fact that the grenades usually push enemies away making it so you can't hit the target again.
  • Explosive guns also damage the user so fighting in close proximity makes it difficult for them to shoot without killing themselves as well.

Upgrades

Supported maps

Weapon Setups

Trivia

  • The launcher is based off of the Milkor MGL.M32A1 Grenade Launcher, however it seems to have incorrect features and actions, unlike the real life variant;
    • Interestingly enough, in this game the launcher holds only four grenades, in real life it holds six grenades as opposed to four. However, in the update 8.0.0, now it's 2nd upgrade, the Firestorm Up2, has finally 6 rounds, like the original.
      • Also the reload animation is rather odd, since it involves removing the entire cylinder from the weapon, opposed to inserting each grenade in the cylinder, which is done in the real world (this might be due to the slow reloading speed of loading the grenades one by one, in game if that would be implemented , players would have to hide or move frequently)
    • The weapon uses a holographic sight, which zooms in. However, holographic sights do not zoom in real life.
  • Grenades travel faster through the air than rockets (missiles).
  • It uses the same scope as the State Defender, Cherry Bomb, and formerly, "Bastion".
  • It was a weapon that players are forced to buy in the tutorial as of 8.2.1, however, the starting Heavy is acquired through completing a campaign level. 
  • It was an upgrade to the Grenade Launcher, but since 8.3.0 the latest is an independent weapon.
  • It was removed in the 12.0.0 update, and disguised as an Apocalypse
