…Effective at medium range. High accuracy. Outperformed by weapons with higher rate of fire at short range… – in-game description


Introduction


The Molot is a light kinetic weapon. It was released in the first version of the game.

This auto-cannon can accelerate its fire rate up to 1.5x usual speed, if fired continuously for longer time than 3 seconds. The accelerated state is disabled if firing is stopped for more than 1 second or ammo is depleted.

As a light weapon, it is usually mounted in groups of 2, 3 or even 4, as a concentrated fire of Molots can prove efficient in mid-range combat.

The Molot is probably one of the most versatile weapons in the game. It can tear up robots at mid to long range (800 meters) and isn’t too bad in close combat either, although other weapons such as the Punisher, Magnum and Pinata surpass the Molot at ranges below 300 meters.

This weapon has a medium version, the Molot T, with the same rate of fire, but with higher damage per bullet.
