  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Due to the lack of a scope, it is not recommended to use at long range.
  • Line up your shots where enemies are close together, as the weapon is capable of chaining shots between each enemy.
    • Take advantage of this in Silent School's long and narrow corridors.
  • It can be used to counter mobile users, and potentially Jetpack users.
  • If you can aim correctly, It will take one shot to kill a player.
  • Try locking on weakened players, this weapon can easily take out players with low health.


  • If engaged in a sniper duel, take the time to aim first.
    • Use a sniper rifle with a scope at ranges far from the user's ability to aim.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit. However, be aware since it has a slowdown feature.
  • Avoid being too close to your teammates, as there is a chance that the user will be able to damage all of you. The farther you are, the better and the lesser the chance the chain shots will land onto you.
  • When hit, keep moving to make it harder for the user to land a hit.
