Strategy

Tips

  • This gun is useful in weakening/finish off opponents. Although it is not recommended to solo a match just by using this.
  • Make sure to aim and fire effectively. As one tap may expend ammo inefficiently. Although it can take down multiple severely injured opponents in linear direction, it is no good when dealing with opponents who strafe and jump a lot.
  • Aim at the head to increase Damage Per Second (DPS).
  • Conserve ammunition, as it runs out quickly.
  • Try to stay away from long range as it does not have a scope.
  • Use this as a secondary weapon when you need to reload your Primary weapon or its ammo dried out.
  • A great weapon to shoot enemies then retracting back into cover.

Counters

  • Strafe around the user to avoid being shot by the weapon.
  • Hide behind an object, or outflank the user.
  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • This weapon usually runs out of ammo very quickly, so higher ammo capacity weapon could easily outlast these players on a head to head duel.
  • Use other Backups or if everything else fails, use the weapon yourself.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Make sure to have a Sniper of your choice and a Heavy weapon ready.

  • This weapon is a decently good backup, made to actually be a backup type weapon where it is used in emergency situations, sometimes substituting the primary weapon of choice.
