This shotgun is your best friend in hunting a T-Rex or any other dinosaur. Quite an old weapon but works perfectly fine.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Dino Slayer is a Primary weapon introduced in the 13.0.0 update.

Description

It is a shotgun based on the SPAS-12 that shoots multiple bullets in a spread at once like any other shotgun. It has good damage, a good fire rate, low-medium capacity, and low mobility.

Appearance

It appears to be a reskin of the X-mas destroyer and the Mega Destroyer.

It has a silver folded-stock, a brown leather grip, an olive receiver, a green pump, and a barrel which has a silver color. There is a bloodstain on the barrel and shaft of the weapon.

Performance

This weapon shoots multiple regular-looking bullets in a spread like any other shotgun, so fighting in close range maximizes its effectiveness, even though these bullets do have instant bullet travel time.

When reloading, there is a pumping animation on this weapon, which is actually the Simple Shotgun's old pumping animation before the Campaign Update. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • This weapon is deadly at close range, but because of the bullet spread, it's not so great at long-range kills.
    • If possible, try to pair this shotgun with Butt of the Rifle to reduce its pellet spread.
  • Aim for the head, because it will increase its Efficiency per shot.
  • Play in close-range maps. It will be more useful.
  • Maximize this weapon's upgrade to your higher level for it to be useful in higher levels.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges.
  • Stay away from the player using it, as the weapon won't perform very well in long-range.
  • If you are forced to go on head-to-head combat against these users, strafe and circle them. Try jumping and dodge all the bullets.
  • Attack its users from behind.

Recommended Maps

Any close-range maps.

Equipment Setups

Have a weapon with a long-range attack, like a Sniper weapon. Also be sure to have a weapon with a high rate of fire, like the Dual Laser Blasters, so you can melt foes rapidly at medium range.

  • Being a shotgun, this isn't a bad clan weapon, considering its high power, reasonable fire rate, and average capacity, this could very easily give you good game-play at overpowering your enemies at close ranges. Like any other shotgun, have a backup weapon for when you run out of ammo and for medium ranges (something like the Thunderer or the Emperor’s Servants). And a good long-range weapon such as the Wyvern, One Shot, etc (Any Sniper you feel comfortable with).
