Spinigun is the title of a group of common assault rifles. Manufacturers include Vladof and Bandits/Scavs and they use the Vladof gatling barrel. The Spinigun is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

Spiniguns are characterized by Gatling-style rotating multiple barrels. They are best utilized in very long sprays, allowing the gun to get to its maximum fire rate and to stay there as long as possible. Skills that increase magazine capacity (such as Overload and Filled to the Brim) are useful when using Spiniguns.

The large magazine capacity and high fire rate of Vladof's Spiniguns make an excellent choice for Salvador when specced into the Rampage tree, thanks to skills such as Inconceivable, 5 Shots or 6, and Keep Firing.... Use of a Hoarder class mod is recommended due to the extremely high rate of ammo consumption.
