Introduction

The Trident is a mid-range (up to 600 meters) heavy rocket weapon.

Strategy

This rocket launcher functions similarly to the Pin and Tulumbas. However, the Trident has a longer range of 600 meters and more than double the damage per salvo. It fires 3 missiles over 3.66 seconds and deals 6,850 damage per missile at level 12, for a total barrage damage of 20,550 per salvo.

The Trident is able to deliver incredible damage with the splash effect, allowing enemies with the Ecu shield or enemies hiding behind cover to be damaged. This, coupled with its 600 meters range allows the Trident to be a good anti-shield robot weapon. Because of this, it was very popular in the higher leagues, being a great counter to Lancelots and Rhinos, which were then meta. However, due to recent updates, the Trident has been overshadowed and somewhat relplaced as the main mid-range heavy weapon by the Zeus and Dragoon as of the current meta, due to a significant increase in robots with energy shields, such as the Haechi. However, after it received a buff in Update 4.4, it is becoming increasingly common once again as it is much more useful as a counter to the Bulgasari, which has a physical shield.

The missiles need to make contact with the enemy robot, or else they will continue to fly to their maximum distance.

Trivia

  • A trident is a three-pointed spear used as a weapon by Poseidon, the Greek god of the seas, likely from where the gun’s name was derived, due to it’s ability to fire three rockets, like the three spear points of the Trident.
  • Pre update 2.5, the name prefix “HRS” stood for Heavy Rocket System.
  • While reloading, it is possible to see each of the 3 missiles being set into position on a revolver. When being fired, the revolver spins, with each missile being visibly shot out of the weapon.
  • According to information on older vk.com page for WWR, back in the 2015 year there was a "propose your own weapon" event, and a "revolver-like missile weapon" won the event. After some period, the prototype for a Trident was born, but the initial model was scrapped. However, there is at least one picture of a developer working on early "revolver-like missile weapon" model, which may be the Trident.
