Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • While most people dismiss this gun, they never really consider the heavy DPS of the gun. It will tear through anybody in your way, endgame or not. It has some bullet spread and lower accuracy so shooting from a distance is a bad idea. The bullets will do less damage the further away you get.
  • It is possible to fire the pistol rapidly, making it a deadly weapon on close ranges, but be careful if your opponent has a shotgun.
