Fires In a Straight Beam

Fires in a Straight Beam

The Ballista is high damage dealing weapon that fires in a straight beam. Due to its damage output, it is an excellent choice for targeting and destroying a demon's weak points. However, you will also need to be accurate to land your shots!

Slow Fire Rate

Despite the weapon's damage, its fire rate is somewhat slow. This is why it is recommended to use at long range, since it will not be able to keep up and defeat demons close to you!

Use in Conjunction With Other Weapons

The Ballista is best used with other hard-hitting weapons for a quick 1-2 combo. After firing the Ballista, switch to another weapon like the Super Shotgun, and deal tons of damage! This will circumvent the Ballista's low fire rate.

Consumes Cells

The Ballista uses cells as ammo, and consumes 25 cells per shot. Despite being a devastating weapon, it is recommended to use this weapon sparingly due to its large consumption of ammo.

Effective Against Flying Demons
