The Skewer is a Power Weapon used by the Banished and can be found spawning on certain Maps, such as Highpower. This Weapon fires a single rocketsized spike that holds the ability to avoid the shields of Spartans and instantly kill them. However, it is a hit and miss weapon within the player base as it requires great precion to wield it effectively.
Strengths of the Skewer
The Skewer is a great secondary weapon choice and is best combined with something like the CQS48 Bulldog - Shotgun, so you can deal with opponents getting a little to close. This Weapon is better used a long range and shines on the larger maps, such as Behemoth and Highpower, as you’ll have more time to line up your shots whilst the enemy is distracted. Additionally, the Skewer is capable of instantly destroying vehicles, so it’s good to save a spike or two to deal flying vehicles on Big Team Battle if the enemy team acquires it.
Weaknesses of the Skewer
Although the Skewer holds the potential to one shot both enemies and vehicles its biggest downside is that if you miss your shots then you’ll find yourself very vulnerable to attacks, as it takes a couple seconds to reload. Another negative is you only have four shots with it, but if you have more ammo and you make them count, then it’ll be pretty Overpowered. That’s why its best paired up with something like the CQS48 Bulldog - Shotgun, so you can cover both long range and close quarters combat.
