Vs Other Weapons

Dragoon or Husk Buster

 

Husk Buster is a Legendary Scavenger Weapon and makes use of Shells 'n' Slugs. Fast-firing shotgun with a significant magazine. Superior for coping with various targets at a short range. Lowered durability, but much cheaper to craft.

 

Husk Buster is Single Target, Dragoon is AoE. They're not used for precisely the same points at all. Dragoon clear husk waves, Husk Buster is reskinned of Stampede. For okay damage use Room Sweeper as an alternative to Stampede/Husk Buster.

 

 

Dragoon vs Duelist

 

Duelist is also a Flintlock Weapon like the Dragoon, which is a slow-firing revolver with a strong kick that deals heavy headshot damage and knocks back targets. Precise out to mid-range.

 

The Dragoon is really a short ranged AoE shotgun whose key goal is knocking husks flat on their back. The Duelist is definitely an unwieldy, medium ranged sixshooter with a high headshot damage. Choose according to your needs.

 

 

Dragoon vs Ground Pounder

 

Ground Pounder is often a Military Weapon, it is a rapid-fire military shotgun with tight spread but stiff recoil. Good for dealing lots of damage incredibly swiftly, but anticipate to reload normally.

 

Dragoon vs Ground Pounder, they are different shotguns, one is usually a quite pretty extremely close range but having an incredibly very good DPS(dragoon) and the other is mid-range(shotty range) and superior DPS.
