- The weapon fires projectiles identical to the ones on the Ogre's poison balls, its base damage however is not poison.
- Having a larger AOE than other weapons it is a very good DPS weapon, often used to complete challenges such as Assault, where you are required to defeat various enemies in a reduced time.
