While this weapon has the ability to hit through targets and hit through defense, it is heavily weakened by its very slow shots, causing many to believe that the weapon is completely useless, making this a risky secondary item.
However, to utilize its power, one must backpedal from the target in order to hit them as this weapon boasts shots with a long lifetime, allowing the player to drag enemies into the shots to deal efficient damage. This may shine upon enemies that chase you at high speeds or an identifiable movement pattern such as the Tomb of the Ancient bosses, many of the Oryx Castle minions and the Stone Guardians, or even Oryx the Mad God himself (although a Pizza Sword or Shalaylee may be safer as getting close to drag can be a risk).
It is also a possible tactic to use this weapon when an enemy is stunned an if a Shield of Ogmur is not present, although the Captain America Sword already removes the purpose of this weapon when facing straight-forward combat if even obtained.
