Notes[]

  • Can be used in bow-only Sortie missions.
  • Despite being a crossbow, maxing it out will not unlock the PS4 "Bow Proficiency" trophy.

Tips[]

  • While possessing an Auto trigger, the Attica is best used when fired in bursts to better aim shots and manage its small magazine. On the other hand, its automatic fire combined with its native knockback makes it good when strafing against multiple enemies, or shooting a single tough enemy multiple times.
  • The Attica ragdolls enemies it kills a significant distance with momentum. This momentum allows the Attica to kill an enemy behind the first target.
  • Thunderbolt12?cb=20190608095452 Thunderbolt synergizes well with the Attica due to the weapon's multiple shots per magazine combined with its automatic trigger, giving it a very high chance of triggering explosions within a shorter amount of time than conventional bows. This makes the Attica more proficient at crowd-control than single-shot bows like the DreadDread2.png Dread, with its full-auto fire allowing one to strafe an area with explosive bolts to deal damage against multiple enemies.

Trivia[]

  • The Attica is the second crossbow introduced in the game, after the BallisticaDEBallistica.png Ballistica. However, it is the first full-sized crossbow to be introduced.
  • The Repeating Crossbow is an ancient Chinese invention, using a hand-operated mechanism to achieve faster rates of fire than normal crossbows at the cost of killing power.
  • Attica's namesake is a region of Greece that encompasses the entire metropolitan area of Greece's capital Athens. The Greeks also had a type of repeating ballista (A kind of scaled-up crossbow) called the Polybolos.
  • Like the DreadDread2.png Dread, the Attica's 'string' glows with energy-colored light running along it towards the draw point.
