“…Heavy long-range firearm that fires a straight trajectory projectile at the target to inflict huge damage upon impact…” – in-game description
|<< PREV||Kang Dae||NEXT >>|
|Damage||5,070 per round||Manual|
|Range||800 meters||Single Shot|
The Kang Dae has higher DPM and a much faster reload (6 seconds as opposed to 9) than the Nashorn, but as a trade-off, the Nashorn has 300 meters more range. Between the two long-range cannons, the Kang Dae is better suited to be used as a mid-range support weapon.
Players using the Kang-Dae are advised to use cover. Always try to stay within reach of obstacles (e.g. walls and buildings) so that after firing, you can quickly hide behind cover to avoid enemy retaliation, especially if you are targeting other snipers.
Snipers are advised to target robots that are heavily damaged and are on low health, as picking off weaker enemies allows teammates with brawlers to prioritize and target stronger enemy robots. Firing on light robots and agile robots may suppress or deter them from capturing beacons, which your teammates can then capture. 'Jumping' robots such as the Griffin or Hover are also good targets, as they are exposed and vulnerable to any kind of open fire.
Pros and Cons
- High range
- Damage per shot is high (more than Nashorn)
- One shot in the magazine which is fired instantly, allowing the user to quickly go behind cover as soon as they fire
- Double damage to physical shields
- Cannot penetrate any shield
- Slow reload time (although faster than Nashorn)
- Very hard to use in maps where there is a lot of cover
