Basic Summary Edit
The Kaizen Crossbow 2.0 is a sniper pistol developed by Kaizen Corp. An oddball in the pistol category, it ignites the arrow right after being launched via a crossbow. This gun never uses explosives to fire the arrow. Therefore, it fires quieter than conventional guns, and is the weapon choice in situations where stealth is the #1 priority. It's a much viable competitor to the Spear-Pistol. Some players can argue that this is a hybrid between a RIA 50, the HIKS S300, and the crossbow.
Playing Style Edit
Overall, the playing style is similar to conventional sniper rifles like the HIKS S300 and the RIA 50. These weapons are designed to take out a significant/important target from a long distance, like a boss (pun not intended). Like the RIA 50, this gun can also slice through crowds from a distance. Advantages over these 2 are the fact that it won't take up a primary slot, leaving a slot open for another powerful weapon with a different function, and the significantly lower movement penalty. Compared to it's competitor, the Spear-Pistol, it fires much faster, has smaller movement penalty, has Dot, higher capacity, and shorter reload time. This comes at the cost of initial damage, but the higher ROF makes it much more viable for combat. This is one of the few pistols that are actually decent at bossing.
Recommended Augs Edit
Deadly: The first choice for nearly all weapons. Allows it to deal more initial damage and lets it kill faster.
Tenacious: Allowing this weapon to deal more DOT, meaning that when you shoot the zombie, there is a higher chance you can just forget the zombie and let it die, saving bullets fired. This also comes in handy during bossing, especially against fast and pesky enemies like the Necrosis, Runners, and Spitters.
Adaptive: Allows it to kill off Thermal resisting zombies easier. Makes it more versatile. It's also a crucial aug for Nightmare Mode.
Capacity: Another helpful aug, since the clip can be drained in a matter of seconds (around 2 seconds to be exact). Allows it to shoot longer and kill more enemies before reload is needed.
