For when suppression just isn't good enough, the Blitz Needle specializes in "oppressive fire".
Basic Attack Edit
Fires a cone-shaped burst of 6 shots. Two bursts can be fired before reloading. Can't move while firing.
The Blitz Needle seems to fire its clip slightly faster than the Strike Needle. When tested with both characters wearing the four-star gunslinger gear (Sunset Duster and Sunset Stetson) with the Swiftstrike Buckler, the difference was more apparent than it was when both characters were wearing gear that had no effect on handgun attack speed.
Charge Attack Edit
A burst of 15 shots fired sweeping from side to side in a cone-shape. Can't move while firing or while reloading at the end of the charge attack.
The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as the damage dealt on the first and last floor of each stratum.
