Makarov Pistol

Makarov Pistol
Handgun ★★★ Good

Welrodski! ...By which I mean she's basically Welrod but 3 star, with lower numbers and an aura that wants her in the middle (or front works too). Usable if you lack Welrod and honestly not actually bad, but HG builds are cheap and she's pretty common so she might get annoying to get eventually. Also her -acc skill stacks with Welrod, and can be combined with a +evade skill for silliness.

Rifle ★★★★★ Early Burst vs Medium Unit (Niche)

The madmen finally did it. While she saw some re-evaluation in Continuum Turbulence onward for older servers, the introduction of M82A1 in the same event kind of also filled in a similar role, but better. Now, with a fairly quick 4s ICD for not much loss in damage and .5s between shots, she finally can stop being compared to the bamboo rifles by people who dont know better (a role she is utterly shit at) and settles into her new niche of removal of threatening middle-ish HP units such as Gundams and the like early on, and if you have the unique equipment from Singularity ranking, her initial pre-skill DPS isn't too horrid either. It's still not widescale use, but it's an actual use that can definitely come in handy.

Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I

Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I
Rifle ★★★★★ Recommended

Madam Lee, The Empress, and a whole bunch of other names because she's popular with CN server. The gun that armed the British Empire through both world wars. High damage per shot, decent RoF. Has somewhat more issues with swarms than WA2000 and the other RoF-centric rifles, but will out damage them per shot and benefits greatly from RoF boost from accompanying HGs. Compared to Wa-chan, best for roles with smaller numbers of higher HP enemies.

Walther WA-2000

Walther WA-2000
Rifle ★★★★★ Recommended

A high RoF Rifle with good stats. Probably the best one for general use. If you've noticed by now, high RoF rifles are kind of good. Actually caps RoF if paired with Calico, allowing you use other damage boosters instead. With the October 2018 patch, RoF cap is higher, and Calico alone is no longer enough.

Rifle ★★★★ Niche uses

Probably the easiest among the bamboo spear units to get. Not actually as good as the others, while having the same disadvantages. Her special equipment is basically a Camo Cloak but with +1 RoF.

See NTW-20's entry, but with somewhat lower ATK. Also a loli and will call the police on you.

United States Gun, Machine, Caliber .30, Browning, M1919A4
Machine Gun ★★★ Good

She's basically LWMMG, except a 3 star and slightly more annoying to build up. She's like seriously, not even a performance benefit. Their stats are almost identical and they have the same number of shots so you... might as well just raise LWMMG, but LWMMG gets a mod later. But well, LWMMG is good so she kinda is too I guess. If youre a noduper she's another usable MG for you, since there's a shortage of those.

Mauser C96

Mauser C96
Handgun ★★★ Core fodder

Some may claim her skill is useful (It pretends to be), except it applies after the penalty (and really, its' multiplication and isn't on the same modifier so its autoshit either way), so 100% - 90% = 10% x 2 = 20%! Congratulations, you've wasted 600 basic data, 1020 intermediate data, and 500 advanced data for less benefit than a 2* PEQ.

Has a mod, but doesn't get much better.

NTW-20

Premod, TAC-50 does her job but better. So if you're hurting on 6* mod material cause of all your Calico mods, ignore her until you can afford that. After mod...well look at her mod article.

QBZ Type 97

QBZ Type 97
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Not really used anymore

Civilian version of a gun even the Chinese Army realized was a bad idea. Used to have a niche use for battles that needed fast skills due to her low initial cooldown, excellent uptime, and unique equip, putting her in a good spot as a second-string AR. Unfortunately, there are now lots of good ARs, and the existence of chips has improved a lot of other ARs while she got left behind.

QBZ Type 95

QBZ Type 95
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Usable

Kishiyo face, and a silly source of drama, because he had a bitchfest over her VA not being someone super famous. With her unique gear, she can actually beat G41 in the first eight seconds of a fight, or if a fight lasts longer than 20 seconds. Unlike her sister, she can actually use chips so she's vaguely usable. Still just a second-string AR though.

Heckler & Koch G41

Heckler & Koch G41
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Kind of fetishized and sort of jailbait, but the standard by which most day battle ARs are judged by, and thus literally average. She's pretty much pure vanilla and a decent direct fire AR. Worse than G11, but still decent. Potentially usable with SR-3 if you need to. Pretty much the core of many second string teams.

While her equipment from CT ranking makes her better, it doesn't make her stand out too much more compared to the many high end ARs we have now. Still ok to use though!

Heckler & Koch HK416

Heckler & Koch HK416
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Usable

Has daddy issues with M16 and the grump of Squad 404. Also the most common 5* AR statistically and hailed by China and Korea as the 5* AR that you can 5x link without cores!

The Right Arm of the Free World

There was a time she was good. That time was before we got grenadiers that shot as fast as she does. She does fire three grenades though, although they are weaker than everyone else's. Has the odd use here and there, but time and powercreep have not been kind to her.

Calico M950A

Calico M950A
Handgun ★★★★★ Recommended

Very good benefits for night battle albeit on a slightly odd shaped aura, but easily workable still. Paired with guns that need a lot of RoF boost like Lee-Enfield a lot. Also allows WA2k to max out her RoF immediately through just their 2 buffs + formation bufftiles. Though largely pointless for MGs, she enables 1 of the most stupidly powerful formations in the game, the IWS-DPS squad.

GREEN IS THE DANG—

She now has a mod, which can be viewed here
