|— Item Description|
Orthus is an Submachine Gun that was released on 7/16/12.
The weapon has many huge improvements over the Dual Skorpions such as a lot tighter bullet spread, lower recoil, larger ammo capacity, faster reload, more damage and greater portability. Dual Skorpions are completely inferior to the Orthus.
Currently, it is available from the Supply Crate MYST-Quebec and the Soldier's Fortune. Just like the Legion, the Orthus' duration can only be renewed by the Demonic Renewal Kit due to balancing reasons.
