The Pet Dragon is a Special weapon added in the 10.0.7 update.
This looks like a much smaller version of the Dragon boss from campaign that rests on the player's right arm. It has black scales, a golden collar decorated with different colored gems. It has red and black wings, black legs, red horns, eyes, and spikes.
It has decent damage, a very high rate of fire, average capacity, and normal mobility for levels under 12.
- Use it in very close ranges in order to kill somebody due to this being a flamethrower. However, the Pet Dragon has quite a long range for a flamethrower.
- Go for the weakened players for better ammunition conserving, quicker kill registering and a less complicated duel.
- Take advantage of the weapon's Burning attribute on players, since the enemy will be damaged over time if attacked.
- Target players who are using heavier weapons, as you can catch up and attack them. Either that or you could use the fastest weapon you have at the moment and then using the Pet Dragon when the enemies are within range.
- Keep moving and stay in large open areas. Use a long-ranged type of weapons like primary weapons.
- Pick off its users from long ranges.
- Avoid engaging close combats with its users and it also reduces the risk of taking heavy damage.
- This weapon does quick damage over quick time, so try and escape their vision.
- Avoid the user after they reload, and attack quickly during their reload.
- Weapons such as "Bastion" and Hedgehog are good counters to this weapon. They have a high efficiency, so they can kill the Pet Dragon user very quickly. Battle Mech can be used as well. However be aware when using area damage weapons (Bastion or the Pumpkin Thrower), because if you are too close to the explosion you could suffer from self-damage.
- Hold out a weapon with low weight at low health and run.
As always, have a good primary weapon of choice (any kind of weapon you choose) and at least one weapon with a scope for long-ranged duels.
- In terms of gameplay, this is one of the best flamethrowers for any newbies in the game, boasting an incredibly high DPS and decent burning damage. For obvious reasons, duels should only be kept in close ranges with this weapon. Aside from its solo capabilities, this weapon can be very effective n weakening opponent's armor and destroying gadgets (such as the Robot Samurai).
- The flame shoots out is identical to the flame that the Flaming Volcano shoots out.
- The flame of the Pet Dragon is wider than the flame of the Flaming Volcano.
- It reloads by feeding the dragon with a cherry.
- It is one of only two Dragon based weapons that is an actual dragon, the other being the Frozen Dragon, a higher-level re-skin.
- Despite it being called Pet Dragon in Pixel Gun 3D, in the Pixel Gun Company's Facebook page when they said 'New update 10.0.7 is out', they intended to call it 'Real Dragon'.
- It was given the Burning attribute in the 11.1.0 update.
- It used to have an efficiency of 23, but recently it was nerfed to 20.
- This weapon performs the same, despite the nerf.
- This weapon can still be used effectively at the higher levels, making this weapon a great investment from the very start.
- Its counterpart is about the same, except for the burning and slowing down affects.
