Strategy and TipsEdit

It is advised to wear at least one explosive damage reducing armor or a set with 30% Health when using the Thumper so auto killing wouldn't happen frequently. Like any other explosive weapons, the Thumper has no auto aim but can defeat low armor players quickly. Use the Run And Gun strategy due to the gun's exceptional Agility and the explosive effect. Circle around players if the user has enough speed. Then fire it at the opponent. Make sure after one shot that wastes the ammo quickly reload. The reload is quick and is break action.


Here's a guide on how to use this weapon to it's fullest.
