Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Can be used on bow-only Sortie missions.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • While possessing an Auto trigger, the Zhuge 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.
  • ThunderboltMod TT 20px.png Thunderbolt synergizes well with the Zhuge due to the weapon's magazine size and automatic trigger, giving it a very high chance of triggering explosions within a shorter amount of time than conventional bows. This makes the Zhuge 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.
