  • The HIG-S Particle Cannon is a special launcher with unique ammo. It fires large projectiles which explode on impact. It has a small chance to shoot three projectiles instead of one, costing only two rounds. The Player's dash will recharge more quickly while this weapon is in their inventory.

    In Arena, it can be purchased for Demolisher as a Series 5 weapon.

    The abbreviation for this weapon is 'HPC.'

    Characteristics[]

    Advantages:

    • Deals impact and explosion damage, quite powerful for its class
    • Projectile impact and explosion is guaranteed to inflict slow
    • Triple shot
    • Faster Dash

    Disadvantages:

    • Quickly builds up heat
    • Fairly high recoil
    • Limited ammo supply
    • Large explosion radius makes it dangerous to use up close
    • Explosions are delayed, making it possible for fast-moving targets to avoid them entirely
    • Projectiles detonate upon reaching a relatively limited max distance

    Ammo[]

    Perks[]

    • 6% Triple Shot Chance
      • Has a 6% chance to fire 3 shots instead of one for the cost of 2 ammo
        • Chance affected by luck and player ammo gain
    • Fast Dash
      • Dash refills 0.25s faster while in inventory or held

    Notes/Tips[]

    • Counts as both a Special weapon and a Launcher for class bonuses
    • The HIG-S' Triple Shot Chance perk triggers after Twin Link effects; by carrying a Twin Link II item or installing the Twin Link I attachment, there is a (small) chance for the weapon to fire six projectiles for the price of 2 ammo, essentially turning it into a shotgun for that single trigger-pull. The possible shot count combinations are;
      • 1 (no proc)
      • 2 (twinlink only)
      • 3 (trishot only)
      • 4 (twinlink - one trishot, one normal)
      • 6 (twinlink - both trishot)

    Trivia[]

    • This weapon's name is a reference to the Higgs Boson, or "God particle."
