The Golden Bros is a Primary weapon introduced in the 17.1.1 update. It is one of the 6 weapons in the Gold Division Clan Set.

Description

It is a pair of golden assault rifles that shoot golden bullets automatically. It has good damage, a high fire rate, high capacity, and decent mobility.

Appearance

Each rifle has a golden pistol grip with a skull embedded in the side, a golden magazine with a large blue skull, a grey receiver, a golden handguard, and a large barrel/muzzle. In addition, each rifle also has a scope in the shape of a skull,with small golden wings protruding from the sides, and a golden chain hanging under the barrel.

Performance

This weapon is a general-purpose close to medium-range Primary. Given that this weapon is dual-wield, the player holds each replica on each hand. The weapon shoots from both guns almost simultaneously, given that it is also automatic. The bullets shot from this weapon are golden bullets with instant bullet travel time, where there are abstract coin and gem effects emitted on the weapon nozzles. This weapon also possesses a 4x zoom optic sight, which helps it to fight in medium to longer ranges. Furthermore,it can deal critical damage as well, which means that there is a chance that it would deal twice the damage. Moreover, it can give increased damage to nearby allies and teammates.It is an extremely powerful primary as it has 50% chance on each shot to score Critical hits. Critical hits double the damage of base damage.

When reloading, the player takes out the magazines, puts another pair of magazines off-screen and shows the pair of pistols on screen.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Golden Bros will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.

Tips

  • At medium to long-ranges, using the scope is recommended.
  • This weapon's high fire rate will quickly take down unarmored opponents in direct combat.
  • Try flanking around enemies while firing at them from their blind spots, this is effective in close quarters maps such as Pool Party and Colosseum.
  • Be mindful of the ammo capacity, as the high fire rate will chew through reserves quickly.
  • The Critical Damage attribute benefits the weapon significantly since the high fire rate allows constant crits.
  • It is recommended to stick close to your teammates since holding the weapon will grant them a damage bonus. It is extremely effective in Escort, Clan Raids, or Monster Sieges because you will have many teammates around you.
  • Strafe around when using this weapon so other players, especially snipers, cannot hit you.
  • This is an effective weapon when dealing with melee weapon uses.
  • Teammates will get the damage boost when you are holding you weapon, not just when you are firing. The damage boost is about a 35% increase.
