Vs Other Weapons

Typewriter vs Bundlebuss 

 

Bundlebuss is a surprisingly accurate multi-barreled rifle that fires strong bursts. A higher harm and massive magazine support compensate to get a slow fire rate and heavy kick.

 

Bundlebuss and Typewriter are unique playstyles, Bundlebuss does crazy initial damage pretty much one hitting blaster with appropriate perks and fixes on the 6th perk, it can one shot blaster, and Typewriter is definitely the extra high DPS gun, close variety gun. Bundlebuss is more catered towards close to mid range.

 

 

Typewriter vs Bobcat

 

Bobcat is a rapid firing weapon with fantastic harm output and magazine size, but lower range than most assault weapons. Maintains most of its accuracy while moving and firing in the hip, excelling at close variety mobile skirmishes.

 

Typewriter and Bobcat are unique ammo varieties, diverse roles. Upgrade each, they're both leading off the class in their very own regards. Each Mid-range ARs, but tbh if you need to switch over for your bobcat go ahead, but hold onto your Sort for later when you can/want to upgrade it. It shreds in just in regards to the similar way, and quickly sufficient you'll see obtaining both is usually a blessing.

 

 

Typewriter vs Lynx 

 

Lynx is a slow firing burst assault rifle with above average headshot damage and excellent stability.

 

The Typewriter is definitely superior and has perks that don't really need to be changed however the Lynx could use some perks changed to create it greater. When you do not have a well-rolled assault weapon I would go for the typewriter, but when you have, opt for the Lynx.
