Laser Staff
Type: Staff
Specializes In: Sniping
Strengths: Long range, fast projectile speed, shots are silent and don't lose power over distance
Weaknesses: Slow recharge time, weak melee damage

A staff with metallic and glowing blue designs. It has the longest range of all staffs and the second-longest range of all weapons (after the Earthmaul Club). Although it takes a while to charge, both its continuous fire and charged shots move very quickly and are silent, making it difficult for enemies to track the user. Unlike most weapons, its dash shots deal the same amount of damage regardless of dash direction or distance from the target.

Idol description

The firing range of the Laser Staff is among the longest of any weapon. While it's slow to charge, enemies don't react to the staff's continuous fire, allowing users to silently roast foes from a massively long distance!

Base statistics

Damage (near) refers to the damage done when the target is as close as possible. Damage (far) refers to the damage given at maximum range. The symbol "—" means the corresponding stat is not applicable to that specific attack.
