Vs Other Weapons

Hacksaw vs Terminator

 

Terminator is really a Legendary fully automatic LMG Rifle and makes use of Medium Bullets, which is a typically terrible weapon. Though possessing a passingly decent DPS at point blank range is an advantage, its ammo efficiency and poor accuracy hold it back-and anyway, other point-blank weapons beat it in any case.

 

The Hacksaw is definitely an excellent base weapon, nevertheless, it has an unfortunate set of preset perks. As an event weapon, you cannot reroll these to something better-yet. Epic has said that we'll eventually be capable of rerolling event weapons, so the Hacksaw could basically turn out to be a pretty damn excellent weapon at that point.

 

But when you wanted something to invest in right now, I'd suggest a Silenced Specter. It can be among the very best AR's at this time and is readily obtainable from event llamas.
