On contrary to the homonymous animal, this shotgun sees everything! Its accuracy is very high even while shooting in semi-auto mode.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Rhino is a Primary weapon introduced in the 14.0.0 update.

Description

It is a blue shotgun that shoots a spread of bullets at high efficiency and power. It has a high fire rate, low capacity, and high mobility. Its speed and power make it as strong as a “rhino”.

 Appearance

It is a reskin of the Heavy Shotgun.

It is a blue shotgun with white accents and a grey stock. The overall design on the front, mainly the eyes and shape, make it look like a somewhat flattened rhino. It reloads by detaching a little cylindrical clip, similar to the Minigun Shotgun.

Performance

The Rhino shoots a spread of bullets with instant bullet travel time and a high fire rate. It is very powerful and best effective at close range. Firing in short bursts can save the player a lot of ammunition.

When reloading, the player takes out the clip of bullets from the weapon's back and is replaced by another. It has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • Like all shotguns, tend to use this gun in close-quarter combat.
  • This gun has low ammo, so try to conserve your ammo as much as possible.
  • A Singular Grenade would be paired up pretty well with this weapon, as this gun is a shotgun, and can deal damage to multiple enemies at once.
  • Try to get headshots on enemies as this would maximize damage.
  • Don't hold the firing button if the enemy is still at medium ranges.

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Strafe around so that users can waste their ammo, and when they are reloading, kill them.
  • Counter them with a weapon that is more efficient than this like the Champion Mercenary.
  • If your accuracy is good, use the Laser Bouncer or the Anti-Champion Rifle to finish them off a quickly as possible to avoid heavy damage.

Equipment Setups

  • It is a reskin of the Heavy Shotgun and was released in the Sniper update 14.0.0, along with other weapons.
