Summary

The Funky Driftlander is one of the many weapons that can be acquired in the Frontier. It can be purchased from Vhitmire at a price of 7,770,000 gold or from Linkman the Junkman at a cheaper price of 7,070,000 gold. Other viable methods of acquiring the Funky Driftlander include but are not limited to:

The Funky Driftlander is similar to that of a spear from the Funky Drifting Land. The weapon may or may not come from the Otherworld as some of the materials appear to come from materials that exist in the Otherworld Dimension.

The Funky Driftlander's basic attack dashes the player forward at high speeds, dealing 100 damage to any opponent in the way and taking 33% of the ranged bonus. This attack can hit at a fairly high rate, though it is somewhat less than twice per second.

The special ability of the Funky Driftlander is titled 'Spinboost', which, upon activation, causes the player to charge forward in a rapid spinning motion, hitting any foes in their path for 660 damage and taking the whole ranged bonus. The player cannot fall while using this ability, making it useful for dodging or midair movement.

Evaluation

The Funky Driftlander is not a weapon. It is a tool. It does very little damage and will not stop upon hitting a target, unlike the drifting mode on the Tri-Blade Shifter.

The left click will propel users forward until they stop holding down the mouse button. This is very useful for all players as the speed bonus is quite useful for traveling long distances.

The special ability is hardly anything special but can be used as a "brake" of sorts since it will halt your movement once the animation ends. This ability deals decent damage in PvP and can be used to charge at players from far away.

All players are highly advised to add this weapon to their arsenals. This tool has a niche for allowing for very fast movement. While its combat is below average, the utility is unparalleled. All players should use this for quick travel in the frontier.

Trivia

  • While surfing, the players can go straight into a slope and jump, possibly causing a massive height gain.
  • If the player holds down the mouse button, they can surf across the ground at high speeds, and when surfing, it does constant contact damage along with stamina depletion.
  • If a server is extremely laggy, players are often flung out of the map and/or disconnect from the server while using the weapon.
  • During the Balance Update [v1.31], the Funky Driftlander's Dash damage was increased from around 80 to around 100 points, and the Spinboost damage was increased from around 440 to 660 points.
