  • Positionning is the key to properly use this weapon, an enemy Marked for Death will not live long if you have some teammates around.
  • Landing a back hit followed by the rest of the clip can deal from 116 damage at long range to 200 damage at point blank, making this weapon deadly as an assassination tool may you can't safely approach and backstab your target.
    • This is due to mini-crits not suffering from damage fall-off.
