BALROG-III is a submachine gun developed by the Aegis Institute based on the MP5K PDW and part of the BALROG Series in Counter-Strike Online.

Overview

BALROG-III is a submachine gun chambered with 30 rounds of 9mm AHE bullets that were both developed by the Aegis Institute. It is equipped with the Balrog Charging System that enables the gun to fire explosive shots after continuous fire. BALROG-III is also equipped with a reflex sight and the stock is changed from light stock to heavy stock, briefly increased accuracy.

After BALROG-III fires 15 consecutive rounds, its Balrog Charging System will be activated. Using not only explosive rounds, the gun will also use its reserved ammo instead of its primary ammo with a great increase in rate of fire. Once stopped, the effects will be negated.

Advantages

  • Low recoil
  • Fast reload time
  • Very high rate of fire

  • No speed reduction
  • Usable sights

Disadvantages

  • Sold for a limited time only
  • Runs dry easily
  • Cannot penetrate walls

Tips

  • 30 rounds of BALROG-III can inflict 720 ~ 1440 damage to zombies.
  • Control the recoil and aim for the head as it is the key to master this gun.
  • This weapon boasts the highest rate of fire among most weapons when the Balrog Charging System kicks in.
  • It is as light as wielding a melee weapon, meaning the gun has no speed reduction. Good for rushing/tanking purposes.
  • Very useful for horde control in Zombie Scenario modes, as it only costs $400 for 600 rounds, coupled with its high rate of fire if fired continuously.
  • When Balrog Charging System is activated, stun and knockback power is increased significantly.

  • 4 ~ 5 hits on the body are needed to kill a single target, while 2 ~ 3 hits on the head are needed to do the same.
  • BALROG-III is good for close to medium range battles. Use the scope for long range battle.
  • Recommended when dealing with large amount of advancing enemies.
  • It is a good weapon to cover your teammates with the explosion ability.
  • An extremely-skilled user can use BALROG-III as a tanker or a scout.

  • Approximately 83 shots are needed to kill a 2000 HP zombie.
  • Combine with Deadly Shot when Balrog Charging System is activated to maximize the damage.
  • Recommended as last-minute room clearing weapon in closed areas such as in ducts.
  • Prioritize targets such as Heavy-type zombies are easy targets.
  • Keep an eye on newly infected zombies and take them down first. Be aware of their stun and knockback resistance as BALROG-III is weak in stunning zombies.
  • Avoid direct contact with Regular-type and Light-type zombies, they usually have high HP and small hitboxes respectively. You might waste all of your ammo just to take them down.
  • It is best to team up and cover to take down zombies as they will eventually would not make a move if being shot continuously.
  • Always pick up supply boxes to replenish ammo. Otherwise, the use of Strong Lifepower for extra reserve ammo is recommended.
  • BALROG-III is suitable for engaging Light-type zombies in the hands of a skilled player.

  • Good for early weapons to control zombie horde. Moreover, it has high rate of fire and very cheap ammunition costs.
  • BALROG-III works best in low money income maps such as Trap.
  • Avoid having contact with mini bosses such as Ganymede.
  • Not recommended in boss battles due to the low damage.

Tactics facing BALROG-III users

  • BALROG-III runs dry easily. Charge if you have high health points.
  • Avoid having close contact with BALROG-III users because they can be very deadly.
  • Retreat when Balrog Charging System has been activated.
  • Light-type zombies work well against them due to small hitboxes.
  • In ducts, beware of their BCS spray.
  • Work with other teammates to confront BALROG-III users, they can't control their accuracy well when running/jumping.
  • Zombies that have Dash Ability (Metus and Normal) are also recommended to face BALROG-III users since BALROG-III runs out easily on High HP zombies.
