The Orb Staff is a staff in Kid Icarus: Uprising. This weapon fires jewels that have large size, which allow a greater span of attack. Continuous shots are yellow, have a slight homing ability, and tend to spread when the player dashes. Charged shots are green and can pierce multiple targets. Both shots deal more damage from afar than from up close.
