Let’s not waste any more time and get started.

  • Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle

Bolt Action Sniper Rifle
These sniper rifles do some awful lot of damage from a far range. However, they carry one big dis advantage; in between shots with this gun you will lose sight of your foe.

Although they do a lot of damage they also fire at a very slow rate. So, you need to make sure that each shot you take with this gun is a headshot. These snipers and assault rifles are soulmates.

Pistol
Pistols in this game are a tough weapon to wield. For starters, you really need to be accurate and make every shot count otherwise your enemy will be left standing when you have an empty magazine.

Pistols are best paired with Assault Rifles and Snipers. Here are the various forms of Pistols you will find in this game along with their stats.

Combat Shotgun
These guns are absolutely lethal at close range. They make a very good combo with the decoy EGO power. However, one big drawback is the amount of time they take to reload.

FRC Scattergun
N/A

Frontier Shotgun
N/A

Scattergun
N/A

VBI Shotgun
