"really fast short-range weapon"


The Daggers is a Weapon in MooMoo.io.

Technical

  • The Daggers deal 20 Damage to Players per hit.
  • The Daggers swings 3 times faster than the Tool Hammer, or 10 times a second.
  • Daggers allow the Player to move at 113% of normal speed, or 13% faster speed.
  • When a victim is hit, their speed is cut by 10% for an unknown amount of time (Not a long amount though, 1 second or less.)
  • The Daggers are unlocked at Age 2 as an alternative to the Short Sword, Hand Axe, Polearm, Bat, and Stick.
  • Daggers have a small knockback.

Strategy

 To destroy someone you can use the bull helmet with. This will make you to do more damage and to prevent getting killed you can use shield to prevent get highly damage, also use Samurai hat because it will cause someone shame! hat easily.

  • The Daggers are highly effective against short-range Weapons such as the Hand Axe and Great Axe. It is much less effective against long-range weapons like the Bat, Polearm, and Katana.
  • The Daggers is also effective against auto-healers. Combined with Samurai Helmet you can get spam to fast they get the Shame! hat.
  • Use your fast movement speed to dodge slower hits from enemies.
  • Don't be afraid to use the auto-hit button (E).
  • Use with the Dark Knight and/or Blood Wings to give you a better advantage against players using Bat, Polearm, or Katana.
  • Use Daggers against Bulls and Wolves, as you are faster than them.
  • It is good for chasing after Ducks because you're almost as fast as them.
  • Equip with Bull Helmet to attack at an overwhelming speed and damage. Also, use Blood Wings to negate the bull helmets drain.
    • If you have Diamond/Ruby Daggers, you can three shot others with the Bull helmet. Useful against those who heal fast.
  • Capitalize on Ruby Daggers. Continuously attacking a Player will force him to heal often as the Ruby bleed effect deals damage over time. This paired with the Dagger's ridiculous attack speed means that the attacked player may either not be able to heal fast enough and die, run out of food and die, or, if he heals too fast, he may be falsely identified as a hacker and get the Shame! hat.
  • Try using Soldier Helmet and Shadow Wings for the same speed, but to endure more damage in a fight.
  • Pair with Booster Hat and Monkey Tail to travel at blistering paces.
    • Pairing this with a Ranged Weapon is effective. It can also be good for chasing and escaping enemies and going through tight spaces.
  • If you get stuck in a Pit Trap and someone places a Spike behind you and tries to push you into it, hit towards them and the knockback will stop them from pushing you in.
  • Dagger has the highest DPS and yields 5 gold per hit. Use for gold farming for maximum results
  • Run from Short Sword and Katana. they have high DPS (just a little less than you) but more range. (110 and 118 compared to 65)
  • Pair with Repeater Crossbow to attack with high DPS, gather resources quickly, and make up for the Daggers' low range.

When you use with Dark Knight or Bloodthirster with Blood Wings you are literally immortal to bulls,bullys,and wolves if you keep hitting them. Just let them hit you but keep hitting them. your health will keep regenerating.

Against

  • To avoid the Daggers, just run away while hitting them. Your knockback should keep them away from you. Never go too close, for you will almost certainly be chopped up in pieces, especially for slow hitting weapons.
  • To keep people with the Daggers away from you, use knockback weapons like the Polearm or Bat.
  • Another easy way to do this is a Repeater Crossbow/Crossbow since they slow you down for better accuracy and damage.
  • Due to the Katana's long-range and decent attack speed, this is a viable counter. People with Daggers are likely to run away from you. Use the Monkey Tail or Mc Grabby to chase after them. Make sure to not Auto Attack, and just attack when your target gets close.
  • Daggers only do 20 damage, but their attack speed is very fast. Let them chase you just for a second, and then put down either a Pit Trap or a Teleporter.
  • Don't Food spam as fast as possible, because then you will waste Food and possibly get the Shame!  a hat that will block you from eating and cause an imminent Death.
  • If you get stuck in a pit trap, you can use a knockback weapon like a Bat or Polearm so they cannot reach you and kill you. If they have a Ranged Weapon, place windmills so they can't shoot over Platforms.

Gold Variant

Gold Daggers

When the Daggers are used to obtain 3000 Resources, they will become the Golden Daggers. The Golden Daggers deal 22 damage per hit. Their design is nearly identical to the regular variant, but the blades are shorter (they still have the same range) and the guards are trapezoid-shaped. It also turns golden on the blade.

Diamond Variant

Diamond Daggers

Diamond Daggers before the sprite was added

An additional 4000 Resources gathered with the Golden Daggers (7000 Resources total) will turn the Golden Daggers into the Diamond Daggers. These Daggers technically deal 23.6 damage, though the GUI rounds this up to 24. The blades of the Diamond Daggers become wider compared to the Golden Daggers, and Red jewels are integrated into the now curvy guards. Of course, the blade also takes on the traditional blue diamond color.

Ruby Variant

When the Daggers obtain 12000 (5000 more) Resources, they will become Ruby Daggers. The Ruby Daggers deal 24 damage per hit with a 5 damage per second poison effect over 5 seconds. Ruby Daggers appear to be very sharp. They have a gold bead set at the cross between the blade and the guard. The guard is curly, and the hilt is deep black. Of course, it has the normal red color on the blade and the guard.

Real Life Equivalent

  • Daggers are for the quickest and most agile fighters, which is represented by the fast movement speed and attack speed.
  • In real life, daggers are usually used in a stabbing motion, as opposed to a slicing motion like in MooMoo.io.
  • Daggers, with their blades, should deal more damage than a simple tool hammer, yet they don't in-game.

Trivia

  • Though most weapons found in the data files point downwards, the Daggers point to the right. This is so the blades point forwards, not off to the entity's right.
    • This trait is also shared by most Ranged Weapons, as they also point forward, suggesting that they go together.
  • Currently, the Dagger has the fastest attack and movement speed of any weapon in the game - even faster than the Tool Hammer.
  • It is possible that the Dagger can actually gather resources faster than the Hand Axe, due to its fast attack speed. It cannot, however, hit two Trees at once unless they are very close to each other. This goes the same for Bushes.
  • Update 1.1 which increased its damage from 15 to 20 made it have a DPS (Damage Per Second) of 200, which is higher than the Great Hammer's DPS to Structures when calculated. In fact, they have the highest DPS even when attacking Players.
    • However, for an unknown reason, all calculations on how fast a Weapons should be able to destroy a Structure are always off, and the actual time is slower than that amount. Additionally, the Great Hammer destroys Structures faster than the Daggers in the game, making Great Hammers slightly more useful in that aspect.
  • All though most of the image files for the Daggers start with "dagger_1", the unreleased Emerald Version starts with "daggers_1". This means it wouldn't render it if it was added. To see the sprite, look in the gallery.
  • Using Daggers, it will take you just half a second to kill somebody, assuming they don't heal. With Bull Helmet, it will take you a mere 0.4 seconds.
    • Even if they have a Soldier Helmet, it still takes you less than a second to kill them.
  • Although Polearm does more than double the Daggers' damage, Daggers can kill somebody 4x faster.
  • It is known that Daggers can gather more Resources than the Hand Axe because they have better attack speed to grab some Resources.

History

  • 1.1 - Buffed damage from 15 to 20
  • 1.0 - Added.
