The 13 57 pairs a compact burst, high DPM autoloader with excellent vision control.
Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb compact burst (720 in 7 sec)
+ Superb view range (390)
+ Excellent DPM, usual for an autoloader
+ Excellent camouflage
+ Slightly above-average HP (890)
+ Small profile
– Poor gun depression (-6)
– Intra-clip reload (1s) is much faster than aim time (2.3s base), so if you fire as soon as the next shell has been loaded, the shot may be inaccurate
– Considering the high rate of fire, has low ammo capacity (54)
– Poor armor, but enough to avoid greater-than-triple overmatch
I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.
