Tactics[edit | edit source]
A weapon with long range, good damage and decent accuracy, this can eliminate most targets from a safe range at a decent rate. However, it fires slowly and notably has a minimum effective range, limiting its effectiveness against horde attacks. As a result, it should be used in a support role rather than as a frontline weapon which most assault rifles fit into.
Recommended gear[edit | edit source]
- Bandoliers mitigate the slow reload speed.
- Extended Mags beef up the magazine capacity, allowing for more shots to be fired before reloading.
- Glasses extend its already impressive effective range, with some variants improving its accuracy as well.
