Weapon Statistics

The Plasma Orb is one of the Heavy's secondary weapons, released in update 1.3.1. It is a re-skin of the Hivey League. In comparison, it inflicts more damage and has a shorter reload, but has less ammo and a slower rate of fire.

The amount of voltage this gun produces is just enough to turn anything it touches into a smoldering husk of its former self... is that enough you think?

~ Official Battle Bears Gold description


The Plasma Orb is a damaging shotgun that is used in a form of close range offense. When fired, it releases a spreading blast of purple electricity that damages any enemies in its path. The Plasma Orb deals consistant damage per shot and has 2 ammo. It has a relatively quick rate of fire and can thus be used relatively frequently throughout a short period of time, though it leaves some room for error. The Plasma Orb has a very short range and is best utilised at close range where the player is at risk or as a suitable replacement for their primary weapon.

In comparison with the Heavy's other shotgun secondary, the Hivey League, the Plasma Orb deals another 20 damage, has 4 less ammo, a slightly slower rate of fire, and a faster reload. All in all, the Hivey League is better for gradual damage, while the Plasma orb works better as a quick finisher.
