Special Weapon Effects

OMG, what's it doing to Sanchez?! – Significantly increased magazine size. Increased weapon damage and accuracy.

Usage & Description

The Flayer is a significant improvement over a standard Coach Gun, as its upsides negate the usual downsides of normal Jakobs shotguns (low magazine size and accuracy). Coupled with its increased damage, the Flayer can easily kill tough enemies or multiple weaker foes in a single magazine.

It should be noted that while the Flayer's damage per second is unrivaled in regards to other Jakobs shotguns, this only applies in close range. It suffers from heavy recoil otherwise. Still, at a range of a shotgun, it will pack more punch than your average Coach Gun, or even a Quad.
