Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • Important to note that though the Attica is a crossbow, maxing it out will not unlock the PS4 "Bow Proficiency" trophy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Attica is the second crossbow introduced in the game, after the DEBallistica.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 Dread2.png Dread, the Attica's 'string' glows with energy-colored light running along it towards the draw point.
