5. Singularity Phantom
It is another futuristic-looking weapon like the ion phantom, but it looks like it is wielded by a villain in a futuristic sci-fi movie. Think of it as the weapon wielded by the arch-nemesis of the Ion Phantom.

The kill sound has a villainy sound to it; the kill emblem also gives off a similar vibe that shows a villain’s face. Reloading is badass with this weapon as it dismantles every time you take out the magazine, but laser lights hold the weapon fragments so it doesn’t fall off. When the magazine comes into the chamber, the weapon pulls itself back, returning to its normal state.
Despite having similar effects to Ion, the finisher of this weapon is the must-see; when you kill the last player of the round, the kill animation lets out a black hole that sucks the enemy, and it projects a collection of clouds and constellations above it.
Phantom is a perfect gun if you know what you are doing. Using it with the cosmetics above will surely improve the quality of experience with this weapon. Sure, weapon cosmetics don’t improve the weapon’s stats or buff it in general.
Still, some of these cosmetics have custom animations and sound, so buy the one that fits you the most so you will feel comfortable when wielding and making you play even better.
