Strategy

Tips

  • Like any shotgun, it is best to use this weapon at close range.
  • This weapon is particularly powerful when ambushing lone targets or duelling.
  • Avoid using this at long range since the spread of pellets would lessen the chances of hitting the target.
  • Aim for the head to maximize Efficiency per shot.
    • Pair this with Efficiency booster wears and equip Piercing Shells to shorten the work.
  • The wider spread allows one to have a greater chance to hit a target if off-center, as well as against multiple targets.
  • This weapon is very useful if one has a coordinated team since it allows a team member to be the designated healer, this is especially useful in game modes such as Raid and Siege.
    • If you become the healer, then it's recommended to keep close to the team to determine who needs healing.
    • Make sure you protect the healer since the healer can keep the team alive longer.
  • If encountering opponents who jump and strafe a lot, use a slow down weapon/gadget and execute them with this weapon.
  • This shotgun has shortest reload time, allowing you get back to fight immediately.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage weapons can counter users at close range.
  • Flank around the user with a melee weapon and quickly attack them.
  • The wider spread can be avoided if the user jumps high enough.
  • Wait until the user has to reload, then attack.
  • Attack its users from behind.
  • Strafe and use fast-firing weapons to shred him/her.
  • Avoiding getting too close to the user, back off while firing to minimize damage taken.
  • If the enemy team has a designated healer, target the healer first.
