For the original version, see M79 Saw off.

Room restrict limitpistolJANUS-1 is a modified version of the well-known American M79 Saw off in Counter-Strike Online and is part of the JANUS Series.

Overview

JANUS-1 is a grenade launcher categorized under the pistol slot and developed by Aegis Institute. It is fed with 5 rounds of 40mm grenade and is equipped with the Janus Transformation System which enables the weapon to continuously fire unlimited rounds for 5 seconds. However, the system only activates after all initial grenade rounds are used up (and hit) on a target. The weapon's Janus form has greater firepower and rate of fire.

Advantages

  • Equipped with the Janus Transformation System
  • Does splash damage
  • Perfect when dealing with large amounts of zombies
  • High damage and high rate of fire in Janus mode
  • Light

Disadvantages

  • Low damage in A mode
  • Low rate of fire in A mode
  • Has to fire all grenade rounds to activate the Janus Transformation System (and hit any target)
  • Expensive for a secondary weapon
  • Damage decreases over radius
  • Low duration time in Janus form
  • Useless after using the Janus form
  • Could easily kill the owner if used in close range (In B mode)

Tips

  • To activate the Janus mode, the user must inflict 5 hits (means that each user's fire must hit an enemy, this is to avoid spamming).
  • Its Janus form lasts for 7 seconds.
  • Its Janus form can be activated even by shooting all 5 rounds on teammates if Friendly Fire is on.
  • This weapon is not recommended for a Boss fight, because it deals little damage even if the Janus form has been activated.
  • There's a trick to save the Janus Transformation System, once it's ready just switch to another weapon and when you are going to use it, just switch it back and quickly activate or it won't take effect.
