Tactics using BALROG-VII

  • Not recommended in Original as it can burn out all of your money.
  • Recommended in Deathmatch for rushing/tanking/defending purposes.
  • BALROG-VII is accurate. Aim for the head to deal maximum damage.
  • BALROG-VII's firepower is high. The weapon's damage is similar with the AK-47 and the Skull-7.   
  • The Balrog Charging System for Balrog-VII has low damage due to game balance. Nonetheless, it is still powerful as it delivers additional damage. 

  • Recommended. The weapon's Balrog Charging System works like small HE grenades. It can kill packs of soft zombies in just one explosion. This can save $1000 from buying a pin of HE grenade.
  • The user is advised to aim at the ground and shoot when trapped by a large group of zombies.
  • Use the explosive shots to help/release your teammates when they are surrounded by zombies.
  • BALROG-VII's explosives does not hurt the user. Recommended for breaking walls alone or covering other teammates to break walls.
  • Be careful when dealing with mini zombie bosses such as  DeimosGanymede or Juggernaut due to BALROG-Vll's weight.
  • BALROG-VII costs $9000, so use your money wisely.
  • Not recommended for beating bosses due to low damage to bosses.
  • Also recommended in Human Scenario. It can kill Titans and large groups of Vanguard troops easily but should not be used when fighting bosses.

  • A 120 rounds of BALROG-VII can do 3720 ~ 7440 damage to zombies.
  • BALROG-VII can deal tremendous damage to a zombie with its ammo. Aim for newly infected zombies for quick annihilation.
  • Use in ducts or hard-to-reach areas for maximum performance.
  • Combine with Deadly Shot for maximum damage output.
  • Try to avoid direct contact with Light zombies or Sting Fingers when in open areas as they are fast and hard to hit.
  • Normal or Heavy-type zombies are good targets for BALROG-VII.
