        it just says to press the button __ not a great tip, to use zoom the sniper (using an xbox control) quickly use the sight button twice and you're done.

          found a neat way to use it, aim, shoot, roll, it autotically reloads while dodging, so you can rooll shoot roll, just care for the stamina consumption

            My only criticism of this gun is that it needs to at least have a 3-5 round magazine because reloading is a *****.

              This combined with Slayer set, all crit/damage traits and Devouring Loop lead to some hilarious crits, especially on weak spots. Managed to shoot some poor mook in the head for over 10 000 damage (not sure if Song of Swords was active). Works well on bosses too, if you're a good shot.
