i like using this gun. Just have to use it in the right way. Normally run with overkill until its leveled up.I find SLH QD and stalker are a must some friends run it with specialist. most seem to prefer damage but i always do better with range. you have to pop out from cover or round corners with trigger finger ready
Yes it is not very good. There is a fun setup for it though. I call it "Cowboys" Its
model 1887 (damage or best proficiency you have so far)
slight of hand pro
steady aim pro
I go specialist because I have damage unlocked
without damage go with support.
Swap to pistols immediately after firing as fast as possible. (with SOH pro its lightning fast) If they didn't die from the first shot spam the magnums at them. This set up only works on small maps because you have no long range secondary. This class trades any long range combat potential to help eliminate deaths from bs hitmarkers. Its fun as hell too.
(note akimbo five sevens are more practical but the class is called cowboys so revolvers just feel right.)
