Usage & Description

The Cold Shoulder is a relatively powerful Vladof sniper rifle that sacrifices fire rate for the ability to fire two shots at once. The shots tend to be ground close together, making it effective for sniping even at long distances with less aim sway. The underbarrel attachment allows the Cold Shoulder to stand in as both a sniper rifle and rocket launcher in one weapon slot.
