Weapons:


Zapper

Zapper

The zapper is the main weapon in Gimkit. It serves as the basis for all weapons and is usually the first weapon you come across when you start playing Gimkit.

Evil Eye

Evil Eye

The Evil Eye is a modified version of the zapper, as shown in the artwork above. This weapon is found in One Way Out, and is one of the best weapons in the game. It is the 2nd most damaging weapon in the game, whilst keeping a relatively fair travel speed.

Damage 72, 80, 88, 96, 104

Speed 6 TPS

Group A - Works well as a heavy unit. Can deal lots of damage before death

PML

PML

The PML, or Portable Muffin Launcher, is one of the most disliked weapons in Gimkit (Based on a community poll). This weapon is also found in One Way Out. Surprisingly enough, it’s not that bad.

Stat Value
Damage 44, 51, 58, 65, 72
Range Long Range
Speed 6 TPS
Ammo 12

Solo B - Because of its high reload time, it isn’t as effective as it could be
Group C - It’s set up to be a heavy unit, but doesn’t deal enough damage

Slingshot

Slingshot

The slingshot might be the most underrated weapon in Gimkit. The slingshot can be found in One Way Out, and deals enough damage to kill your opponent in 2 hits. The weapon used to be the fastest weapon in the game, traveling twice as fast as a zapper, until the blaster was added.

Stat Value
Damage 60, 66, 72, 78, 84
Range Medium Range
Speed 8 TPS
Ammo 5, 6, 7, 8, 10
Bullet Medium Shards
Reload 4 Seconds
Situation
Short Range C - Low ammo and reload speed results in less effectiveness
Long Range A - Due to its fast speed, it’s hard to dodge. It also can go a reasonable distance
Ambush C - Low ammo and damage results in less effectiveness
Solo C - Low ammo and reload speed results in less effectiveness
Group A - Works incredibly well as a sharpshooter unit

Quantum Portal

Quantum Portal

The Quantum Portal is probably the best short-range weapon in Gimkit. For comparison, the legendary Evil Eye deals 104 damage. The common Quantum Portal deals 184 damage. It is quite easy to dodge, though.

Stat Value
Damage 184, 196, 208, 220, 232
Range Long Range
Speed 4 TPS
Ammo 1
Bullet Heavy Shards
Reload 1 Second
Situation

Long Range F - Incredibly easy to dodge
Ambush B - In chaotic environments, you may be able to damage a few opponents
Solo D - Easy to dodge, less targets
Group B - Good in crowds

Snowball Launcher

Snowball Launcher

The Snowball Launcher used to be only weapon in Gimkit that wasn’t in One Way Out, until it was added in. The weapon is featured in all of the snowy minigames, and is commonly related to a machine gun.

Stat Value
Damage 28, 30, 32, 34, 36
Range Medium Range
Speed 6 TPS
Ammo 12, 14, 16, 18, 20
Bullet Snowballs
Reload 1 Second
Situation
Short Range B - Lots of ammo but low damage
Long Range D - Low damage hurts its score a lot
Ambush B - Can lay down lots of hits in a short period of time
Solo B - Lots of ammo but low damage
Group A - Works well as a sprayer unit

Wooden Wand

The Wooden Wand is not very popular among the Gimkit community. It’s just a stick really. Though, fun fact, you can get it in One Way Out by completing a secret mission!

Stat Value
Damage 20, 24, 28, 32, 36
Range Medium Range (Varies)
Speed 6 TPS
Ammo 22, 24, 26, 28
Bullet Medium Shards
Reload 3 Seconds
Situation
Short Range A - Lots of ammo and high fire rate allows lots of damage
Long Range D - Not a lot of damage
Ambush B - Can deal with many enemies at once
Solo A - Lots of ammo and high fire rate allows lots of damage
Group B - Works okay as a sprayer, not as good as snowball launcher

Blaster

Blaster

The Blaster is one of the most unique weapons in Gimkit. Although the version used in the Blastball gamemode does not deal any damage, the creative version does. It is the fastest weapon in Gimkit, overtaking the Slingshot.

Stat Value
Damage 20, 23, 26, 29, 32
Range Medium Range
Speed 10 TPS
Ammo 12, 16, 20, 24, 28
Bullet Medium Shards

Ambush B - Allows lots of hits that are almost unavoidable
Solo A - High ammo and speed allows lots of hits
Group B - Similar to snowball launcher and wand

Conclusion


Gimkit offers a variety of weapons. From long range sharpshooters, to fast-paced sprayers, to high-damaging launchers, there’s so much to choose from, and there’s so many choices for you. I hope this guide helped you. This is the 2nd guide, and in the future there may be a third, but in the end, they all have the same goal… I don’t really know it yet. Here’s a poll!

Also, if you’re wondering why I made a second one, the forums doesn’t allow TL2s to edit posts after 30 days, so I couldn’t update the original. If any gimkit admins see this then pweese let me edit it.

Who flagged my post? It was not inappropriate. @Jeffo please change this.
Either someone is flag farming or they felt offended by the truth. But I didn’t say anything inappropriate.

Also, the Evil Eye has short range, not long.

Actually the projectile doesn’t despawn for quite a while. It might have changed though. I just copied most of the data from the old post

@Haiasi, please show the past thing.

cool guide! i can’t imagine how long this took!

Blaster is going to become meta soon. You can hold it down like zapper, even faster than slingshot, faster reload than snowball launcher, and same damage.

This is what I wrote, how is this inappropriate?
How do I get the mods to change the flag?

I think the mods can probably do that, just message them

I totally understand getting flagged for things that other people post all the time

Thanks for bringing back this AWESOME TUG!! It’s super helpful to me b/c I’m making a
TF2-inspired game, and using different weapon stats and movement speeds as a form of establishing classes, and I don’t want to spend a super long time testing out each individual weapon. Just know, your efforts haven’t gone to waste!

I don’t think the snowball launcher is even underrated, and neither is the blaster.

Well done, @JoeTheChicken! A very informative guide, will be useful for many.

Well, it wasn’t inappropriate in a sense, just I think it may have been flagged because you insulted the creator of the guide tips hat to joe the chicken by calling it useless. Nobody likes being called useless. Still, undeserved. I’m not against you on that.

Nice guide! I have a question, if I measured the distance the projectile flies in blocks, and the speed in blocks/second, could you add it? I probably won’t get around to it until Monday though…

Yeah I think I could add that
