The Dark Matter Gun is one of the weapons that was introduced in the Superstars (Update) and is available as the final tier prize for completing its event.
Run And Gun: This weapon is made for this strategy, as it has great Agility. Since this weapon has a LOT of ammo, its okay if you miss your shots; run around the map, killing enemies as you go, but beware if your enemies are using Shotguns or any potential one-shot kill weapons, because they would kill you easily. If possible, dodge your enemies' bullets with the Circle around tactic and strafe. Also, the reload time of this weapon is very long, so be sure to find a good spot to hide behind walls when reloading.
Camping: This weapon also has good Range, so camping could also be a potentially good idea. Simply put, stand in a spot, killing everything that can be killed, but again, beware of one shot kill weapons, as they can find your camping spot, and simply kill you easily. Exercise special caution when attempting to kill enemies at long range, due to its poor accuracy.
Ambush: This weapon can kill relatively quickly, so ambushing the enemies while they're unprepared can be a good idea. Hide behind walls, 90° turns and hidden spots where your enemy can't see you. Once your enemy approaches, start shooting, and don't stop until your enemy is killed. DO NOT use this strategy against explosives, as they have splash damage.

- At a closer look, it has very similar appearance and projectile's color as compared to the Needler in the Halo franchise (pic as shown above)!
- Despite it's appearance, this gun is NOT a Handgun!
- This weapon's projectiles leave a dark, red glowing-hole when hit. The hole stays for a short time with red electric sparks animation.
