The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • The Auto Shotgun is a great weapon for beginners, as its high fire rate compared to other shotguns, and its good damage allows newer players to effectively attack opponents at close ranges.
  • The Auto Shotgun should be used at extremely close range due to its high spread, any longer will be outperformed by Submachine Guns.
