JANUS-3 is a JANUS submachine gun in Counter-Strike Online.

Overview

Developed by Aegis Lab, this is a Janus Transformation System-equipped prototype version of Thompson Chicago. It is chambered with 50 rounds of .45 ACP and can transform into Janus mode after scoring enough hits, causing tremendous damage to the victim.

Advantages

  • High magazine capacity
  • High accuracy for a submachine gun
  • Has Janus Transformation System
  • Unlimited ammunition in Janus form
  • Easy to achieve the Janus form
  • High rate of fire in both forms

Disadvantages

  • Janus form does not last long
  • Purchasable by cash point only
  • High recoil in Janus form

Tips

  • It requires 25 hits on multiple targets to achieve the Janus Transformation System wheras 20 hits on a single target.
  • When on Janus form, it can deal around 10,000 ~ 17,000 damage to bosses (note that firepower have been maxed).
  • Its Janus form lasts for 7 seconds.
  • This weapon can be a proper replacement for anyone who doesn't own the JANUS-5.
  • There's a trick to save Janus form, after the Janus Transformation System is ready just switch to another weapon and when you are going to use it, just switch it back and quickly activate it or it won't take effect.
