Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Its possible to rapidly gain skill points by using the unload chamber command to dump shells out of the shotgun then picking them up off the ground and reloading them again.
    • Unload chamber is fastest with pump-action shotguns such as the MP-133 or Mossberg, semi-automatic shotguns like the MP-153 requiring pulling the bolt handle which takes about twice as long.
