For the original version, see HK416.

JANUS-5 is a JANUS anti-zombie assault rifle in Counter-Strike Online.

Overview

Well-developed by Aegis Institute based on the HK 416 assault rifle, it is fed with 30 rounds of 5.56 NATO and equipped with Janus Transformation System that can do an unlimited firing mode after 60 consecutive shots. The Janus form has greater firepower, accuracy, recoil and rate of fire.

Advantages

  • High damage
  • Very accurate
  • Low recoil
  • High rate of fire
  • Light weight

Disadvantages

  • Expensive
  • Cannot penetrate objects in Janus form
  • Low reserved ammo
  • Takes time to activate the Janus form

Tips

Overall

  • To activate the Janus form, it takes 57 hits on a single target and 67 hits on multiple targets.
  • When on Janus form, it has the highest rate of fire among its class.
  • Its Janus form lasts for 14 seconds after activated. Use it as fast as possible, or you will miss it.
  • In Janus form, every fire will produce 3 scattered bullets. Therefore, It's not recommended to fire JANUS-5 in long range.
  • 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 it or it won't take effect.

Zombie Scenario

  • If the Janus form is activated, JANUS-5 can deal 60,000 damage to bosses (provided the firepower has been maxed).
  • When a magazine remains 1-20 rounds after the Janus form, it is recommended to drop the weapon and rebuy the same one.

Trivia

  • Ammo used by JANUS-5 can be shared with other 5.56mm rifles but cannot be shared with any 5.56mm machine guns.
  • JANUS-5's drawing sound is similar to the M16A1.
  • The eyes of the Janus figure will flash and emit a laughing sound when the Janus Form is ready.
  • If the user switches to another weapon (not throwing it) while the Janus form is active, the Janus form will still be active until the user switches back to the JANUS-5, but it will eventually return to its normal form.
