JANUS-7 is a JANUS machine gun in Counter-Strike Online.

Overview

JANUS-7 is a machine gun designed by Aegis Institute based on the MG3 and uses 7.62mm as its ammunition. It has Janus Transformation System that can do lightning bolt attack for a certain period of time.

Details: When the requirement is met, you can right-click to transform. Transformation allows you to deal electric damage that automatically tracks enemies within a short range. Electric Damage: 38 (Normal), 35 (Zombie), 143 (Scenario)

Advantages

  • High damage in B mode
  • High rate of fire
  • High magazine capacity
  • Has Janus form
  • Lightning bolt can attack nearby enemies even at side and behind
  • Lightning bolt is able to kill multiple enemies in a row
  • High stun power in both modes

Disadvantages

  • Low accuracy
  • High recoil
  • Heavy weight
  • Long reload time
  • Expensive
  • Janus Transformation System cannot perform headshot even with Deadly Shot skill
  • Lightning bolt has limited range and only focuses on one enemy at a time

Tips

  • Activation of the Janus form varies depending on the mode played. For Zombie modes, it needs 125 hits on a single target while in Zombie Scenario, it takes 350 hits on multiple targets or 60 hits on a single target, whichever comes first.
  • If the Janus form is activated, JANUS-7 can deal 63,000 damage to bosses (provided the firepower has been maxed).
  • Its Janus form lasts for 18 seconds, making it the JANUS weapon with the longest Janus form duration.
  • Note that the Janus form's lightning has limited range and cannot hit targets at long distances.
  • To save Janus form, switch to another weapon when the Janus Transformation System is ready. When you are going to use it, just switch it back and quickly activate it or it won't take effect.

Trivia

  • When the Janus Transformation System is ready, the crosshair will turn purple.
  • When the Janus form is activated, the crosshair will disappear.
  • Oddly, the player model shows the user does not hold the handle but holds JANUS-7 like a normal MG3.
  • There's a common bug where the JANUS-7's shots can be heard and seen at CT Spawn in Assault whenever a player shoots this weapon no matter where they are.
  • JANUS-7 Xmas is the first Anti-Zombie weapon to have an X-mas variant. It has some differences with the original version:
    • The B mode's lightning is red instead of yellow.
    • The Janus head is replaced with Snowman head, it will turn to Santa head upon activating Janus form.
    • The Janus head, however, is patterned on the magazine box instead.
