Type 80 – An All-Around Stalwart

March 21, 2022

Gameplay Tips

As with many mediums, flexibility is the name of the game with the Type 80. The stats on its gun—specifically its high rate of fire, excellent penetration, and notable accuracy—make it a formidable weapon whether you’re supporting your team or leading the way.

Whatever role you choose, use the Type 80’s mobility to get you there. Its top speed gives you what you need to cut off the opposing team’s approach… or to sneak up behind them and attack when they’re not looking.

  • Take advantage of the quick reload time to keep pushing your offense. Don’t let the opposing team get a shot in.
  • Try taking shots from farther away. With the penetration and accuracy on this gun, you have massive power at your disposal.
  • Get into position! Flank and surround the opposition (along with the other fast movers on your team) to stop them right where they are.
