Painkiller features three unique power-ups, all of which will give you a substantial advantage over your opponent. While all of these Powerups last for 30 seconds in duration, the actual respawn time for each item varies. The charts in this guide will provide you with the information necessary to know when to expect powerups to appear and how to effectively use them. It is a good idea to pay attention to when weapons and powerups have been picked up, so you know when they will respawn. Pay attention to when an enemy grabs a powerup, then allow 25 – 30 seconds before you attack so the powerup will run out as the battle begins.

When it come to damage this is the most powerful power-up in the game. It deals massive quadruple damage to anything that gets in the way. The screen turns to black and white with all enemies appearing bright red. The sound effects are very recognizable so you’ll have no trouble hearing this guy coming. It is particularly important to control this item in FFA’s and Team DM’s if power-ups are enabled.
