"This vulcan has good range and speed, but cannot fire rapidly."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Distance Needler (ディスタンスニードラー Disutansu Nīdorā) is an Arm-type vulcan weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Chill Penguin in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. This weapon has similarities to Cherry Blast, but it fires slower and consumes more weapon energy. However, its range is at least full-screen, perhaps more. The shots have piercing properties and can go through multiple enemies, even if it doesn’t destroy them. This means that the player can damage things like shielded enemies from the front.
