The Dreadshot is one of the many Boss Tanks that exist in the Tale of Diep continuity. It is the Boss Tank variant of the Sniper. Idea by Diepmon. Integrated and created off ideas by Zathsu.
BGM: - Fight or Flight by Ethan Meixsell
The ranged specialist of the Knights; he was trained by the Keeper to have the same ruthless accuracy as his mentor. He shares the same symbol with his fellow Knights on his body, which is an arrow pointing down. His Sniper barrel is very long, and tapers into a trapezoid at the end. He has a stout Lancer spike on the back of his body, and one Auto Gunner turret (3 barrels like a Triplet) on either side of the long barrel, for a total of two. On both of his remaining sides, there are Protector shields that end in points. At the base of his Sniper barrel, there is a wide rectangle.
The Auto Gunner turrets are always firing on tanks.
Chain Charge: Used as his first attack. He launches a Destroyer bullet that ricochets off tanks, doing medium damage as it bounces from tank to tank. Upon hitting the last tank, it does double damage.
Pointblank: Passive ability. All bullets have an additional 50% speed buff.
Flak Launcher: The Dreadshot shoots four blasts of many small bullets that spray everywhere. Tanks hit receive the Broken debuff for 15 seconds.
Shotput: The base of the Sniper barrel flashes twice while the Protector shields set themselves up to the left and right of the boss, enclosing one or more tanks within the shields. A high-speed and high-penetration Destroyer bullet is fired off to hit all tanks enclosed. The bullet is undodgeable.
Broken Blast: The Auto Gunner turrets merge their guns into one and rotate to the back. The Sniper barrel widens greatly for the next 10 seconds and the Dreadshot fires rapidly while having the Armored buff for the next 30 seconds.
Therian Form: At 20% health, grows in size by a factor of 2.5x.
- A really mixmatched boss. Note that the Lancer spike is just there for decoration and isn't used in any attack, it will still do damage if tanks touch it, though.
