The Nanobots Rifle is a Special weapon introduced in the 12.5.0 update.


It appears as an orange and silver rifle. On the front, there is a large silver barrel. In the middle, there is some orange and in the middle of that part, it shows a black bug. In the end, there is a silver and orange handle, a red trigger, an orange end and an orange and red magazine.


It has an average rate of fire, good capacity, and low mobility. It is incredibly powerful when used in close ranged maps. It can 2-3 shot kill a max-armored player when maxed out. This weapon actually has a very small area damage.


  • Aim for the head, as this weapon can instantly kill golden armor users and below.
  • Avoid being too close to walls, the projectiles will hit them and decreases effectiveness.
  • Claustrophobic (tight) spaces may help you easily kill your target(s).
  • Use swarms of missiles to increase damage.
  • Use this against the closest player for faster killing and ammunition saving.
  • Because the Nanobots Rifle fires homing missiles (or homing nanobots), use this to dispose of enemies from far distances.
  • Spam the weapon.
  • This is useful for taking down jetpack users, hence its features


  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Strafe a lot, as this weapon's projectiles are slow enough to be noticed.
  • This weapon's projectiles block bullets infinitely, meaning it is impossible to kill or harm the user unless you ambush them from behind or use a weapon that has the wall break effect such as the Prototype.
  • As the nanobots memorize your last location, quickly get out of that location.
  • When the nanobots are following you, try to use a high mobility weapon like the Dark Force Saber or Elder Force Saber.
  • Strafe around a sharp corner or go through a doorway to avert the nanobots' path.
  • You can actually destroy the nanobots by hitting them with the Barrier Rifle's rockets.
  • Use high mobility weapons such as Dark Force Saber to outmaneuver the Nanobots.
  • Try quickly turning near a wall to let the nanobots crash into the wall.
  • This weapon has atrocious mobility, therefore strafe and jump around and use speedy weapons with high mobility to render the user defenseless.
