An extensive blog post on Dauntless’ official website reveals the first ranged weapon, the War Pike. This new fighting weapon is a versatile polearm which brings unique attacks as well as explosive ranged blasting damage to every battle. War Pikes will be added in next month’s Sharpen Your Skills update.

Players using the War Pike to its maximum effectiveness must walk the line between aggression and caution, as the new weapon gathers power with every strike that a player lands. The more full the player’s meter, the more damage they do, but the meter slowly drains when attacks don’t land and will totally empty if a player takes damage. The power gathered in the War Pike can also be used to fire a powerful cannon built into the weapon to unleash devastating damage at range.
