Thing type 306, Scatter Ring, is a Match weapon that, when fired, fires a cross of five shots that spreads out horizontally while flying. It features a huge knockback when hitting enemy players at medium to close range, but the knockback gets smaller with the flying distance. It can be fired at a rate of 1.5 rings per second. Knuckles can fire it at a rate of 2.25 rings per second. 5 shots are immediately granted upon pickup.

Picking up a Scatter Ring on the map will not allow the player to fire it unless they have previously picked up the Scatter Ring Panel. However, the ammo granted will be retained (provided the player does not drop it) and will carry over when the player picks up the panel. This weapon will reach its maximum capacity at 50.

Giving a Scatter Ring the Ambush flag will make it float 24 fracunits above the ground. All Scatter Rings that are not already floating above the ground due to Z offsets should have this flag because items that do not float are difficult to collect and look as if they were stuck in the floor. The flag stacks on top of the Thing's regular height, allowing Scatter Rings to be a total of 4119 fracunits above the ground at maximum.
