Damage type(s) and Attack Speed influence combat. The attack style of the weapon in relation to the combat environment is also important. Consider both when choosing weapons to wield.


Boosts and Penalties are both considered "abilities" in general. Many items don't have any special abilities. See the Abilities page for details. Some enemies are immune to certain status conditions - see individual status pages for details.

All weapons gain these CTR bonuses as they level.
  • Level 5+: CTR: Low
  • Level 10: CTR: Medium

The Virulent Catalyzer is a 4-star handgun.


The incorporation of Spiral technology has given this harrowing handgun a powerfully poisonous payload. Catalyzer bullets envelop the enemy in an energy field that explodes after taking damage.

Energy field only explodes when contacted by charged shot.


Basic Attack

Fires green energy orbs in rounds of three, which bind and orbit around an enemy. Multiple orbs can orbit a single target.

Charge Attack

Fires a larger green orb that sometimes inflicts poison. The orb moves fairly slowly in a straight line. When hit with a charge shot, any orbs circling any enemy from the normal attack (either from the user, or team members) will explode, dealing damage to other enemies in a small radius. The explosion has a chance of inflicting poison.

Normal shots will do only 1 point of damage against all enemies.

Previously, this weapon would produce the circling orbs with the charge attack, which were then able to be detonated with the regular attack. This was reversed with release 2014-12-03.
