Special Weapon Effects
OMG, what's it doing to Sanchez?! – Consumes 2 ammo per shot, heavily increased magazine size (In comparison to other Jakobs shotguns), increased weapon damage, slightly increased accuracy. Fires 15 bullets in a tight spread (17 with Rustler's prefix).
Usage & Description
The Flayer is a significant improvement over a standard Coach Gun, as its upsides negate the usual downsides of normal Jakobs shotguns (low magazine size and accuracy). Coupled with its increased damage, the Flayer can easily kill tough enemies or multiple weaker foes in a single magazine.
It should be noted that while the Flayer's damage per second is unrivaled in regards to other Jakobs shotguns, the high number of shots also means severe recoil if shots are spammed.
