Usage & Description
To use this weapon in standard combat can be extremely costly, in some cases even more than most rocket launchers. Because it empties its entire magazine with a single trigger pull, and at an exceptionally high rate, it's easy to run out of ammunition before dispatching nearby foes.
It is best used as an emergency weapon, given its usefulness at getting second-winds off close to mid-range enemies. Otherwise, at close range one can dispatch an enemy before it has a chance to attack back.
Sustained fire from this weapon is supported by the use of the ammo stockpile relic, but even then the large magazine size and rate of fire ensure that the gun will be reloaded twice at most. Using a melee attack or switching weapons can interrupt the weapon from firing and conserve some ammo, yet can still be unreliable due to wasted shots.
