Tips

  • Stay moving with this weapon, since snipers may abound in a hidden area in an effort to hunt you down while you attempt to execute multiple enemies using this weapon.
  • Remember that you need enough time to kill them. It should not take too long, but try to dodge the incoming attacks.
  • It has a fairly above-average accuracy, so you can use this in long ranges, provided you are skilled enough in the process.
  • Its high fire rate allows you to shred multiple enemies in a single magazine use. Remember to land headshots.
    • Equip max Primary booster wears and Piercing Shells to increase its Efficiency per shot significantly.
  • Make sure to keep the barrel spinning (not firing the weapon) until target spotted and fire away.
    • If one want to unlease bullet storm within short period of time without stopping, equip Turbo Charger.
  • Use this to weaken/finish off targets.
  • Take cover when reloading, as its reload speed is sluggish.
  • Using this weapon to provide suppression fire for your teammate is highly recommended.

Counters

  • Any well-placed one shot kill weapons can be proven victorious.
  • Area damage weapons can be used to disorient its users.
