Tips

Overall
  • Because of single-shot mechanism, it requires precise aiming to kill an enemy. If you miss, switch to a secondary.
  • Do not try the "quick-switch" trick, as it won't work. Every bullet needs to be reloaded only when the user wields the weapon.
  • The reload time is 3.5 seconds for every shot.
  • Try not to hit legs, because it won't insta-kill the enemy.
