Before I start, let me tell you this thing is hot garbage, and I mean utter and complete garbage. Which gun is it you ask?
Step forward the M1897.
Words cannot describe how bad this thing is, it has multiple issues that I can't get my head around, it should be lethal in close quarters when it actually seems to be more based around luck than skill to kill. Obviously you have to position yourself in the kill zone, so it takes some manoeuvring to get in behind but even then you're putting your balls on the line because it's RNG whether your shots are going to be pellets or marshmallows.
The 3rd mastery is kill 60 people while attacking an objective, good luck with that.
- Everything ... including
- Its range, its absolutely woeful. You can put three shots into someone inside 5 metres and only do 60 damage.
- Its ROF isn't high enough considering its shots are completely random whether they will do damage
- Its so unbelievably situational that you have to be in the perfect place and fire the perfect shot to get a kill
- Its random and more based around luck when you actually kill something
- The warm fuzzy feeling inside that if you do kill someone with this POS that you are undoubtedly using the inferior weapon
If you want to really challenge yourself in the game, or just straight up feel like getting wound up spec this piece of garbage, I not only admire your willingness to challenge yourself but I equally feel your incoming pain. At least the novelty pistol is exactly that, a novelty, its supposed to be a joke, this thing is a joke when it shouldn't be.
TLDR - do not, under any circumstances spec this gun unless you want to seriously gimp yourself, its without a doubt the worst gun in the game and by some margin.
