Next week, Dauntless slayers will have a new weapon in their arsenals as Phoenix Labs introduces the brand-new Repeaters. These handcannons may be small, but they pack a hell of a punch. Although the Repeater is technically the game’s first ranged weapon, it incentivizes players to go toe-to-toe with behemoths gun-fu-style by providing increased damage and the ability to trigger “empowering reloads” when firing at point-blank range.
The Repeater is also the first weapon in the game to be modular and fully customizable. Each Repeater is comprised of four different parts: a barrel, a chamber, a grip, and a prism, which determine the weapon’s element, skillshot ability, thrown ability, and passive bonus, respectively. Players are encouraged to mix and match their Repeater parts to tailor the weapon to the quarry they’re hunting, and the system seems to allow for a pretty good deal of flexibility in personalizing each Repeater’s playstyle. “There are many like it, but this one is mine,” indeed. For a more in-depth look on the Repeater, which is coming to the game on October 3rd, check out the official post on the Dauntless site.
