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 
  • Damage decreases over radius
  • Low duration time in Janus form
  • Useless after using the Janus form

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).

  • Unfortunately, even though the Deadly Shot and Janus tranformation system are activated, it cannot perform headshot, except for Concentrated fire.
