Vs Other Weapons

Ol' Betsy vs Duelist

 

Duelist is actually a Flintlock Weapon, slow-firing revolver having a highly effective kick that bargains heavy headshot damage and knocks back targets. Precise out to mid-range. Duelist is workable if you are a pistol user; I like it as an alternative on Raven (if I didn't have better-leveled pistols currently).

 

I find Ol' Betsy as well slow to really use. Between Ol' Betsy along with the previous Obliterator from the shop, I choose Obliterator basically since it has a magazine of four rounds and may shoot by way of objects.

 

That getting mentioned, Ol' Betsy appears to function nicely on a Sniper Defender using an increase to reload speed, or on Bulletstorm Jonesy (or the Chrome reskins) just as a consequence of the quick reload-on-empty capability. Moreso if Ol' Betsy also includes a reload perk on her.

 

 

Ol' Betsy vs Ralphie's Revenge vs Spyglass

 

I compared Ralphie's Revenge towards the Ol' Betsy/Spyglass and though Ralphie's has a monstrously higher headshot multiplier, this can be brought down by the fact that Ralphie's base harm is actually low, so the headshot harm is not even that impressive and as an alternative forces you to go for headshots much more purely mainly because that's the only way it's going to complete damage.

 

Ol' Betsy/Spyglass' raw damage having a lot more in-line headshot multiplier is already competitive if not outdoing RR. Spyglass can also run Crit rating + Crit Harm + Crit damage allowing it to complete big crits. Plus it features a scope so you may essentially snipe with it.
