|MSG-90 Hot Shot|
|“||A limited edition MSG-90, customized by the Combat Arms team.||”|
|— Item Description|
In comparison to the MSG-90, this weapon has one less magazine in reserve, gains five points in accuracy, and is uncustomizable.
Like the original MSG-90, the MSG-90 Hot Shot is a semi automatic (technically fully automatic in game) sniper rifle. It features a slower than average rate of fire for an automatic sniper but with a slightly above average damage damage rating allowing this weapon to consistently two shot kill most enemies from most ranges. Due to the fact it is a sniper rifle, it is highly recommended to avoid close quarters combat with this weapon, but its slower than average fire rate for an automatic sniper makes close quarters "no scope" spraying an even less effective tactic.
Because this weapon has a slow time to kill (compared to bolt action sniper rifles) one should exercise caution when engaging bolt action snipers long range. This weapon fares better against assault rifles and SMGs at long range when shooting from cover as many of those weapons struggle to hit accurately at those ranges.
In conclusion, the MSG-90 and its Hot Shot variant both are decent semi automatic sniper rifles that try to to balance speed and damage. Though they are not as fast as the SR25 nor as powerful as the Dragunov SVD, it attempts to provide a balance of both. For the reasons that this weapon is beginner sniper rifle and is given out for free, this weapon is a decent weapon for new players, players trying to save GP, or for players looking for an alternative for the weapons they normally use.
