1. SA1216 

Best Heavy Gun for Close Combat

Damage Fire Rate Range Accuracy Mag Size Reload Speed
91(1 shot) 40 20 30 16 3
  • Why I Chose This: The S1216 is my personal preference because it offers a great balance between firepower and mobility and this weapon fires 13 pellets with widespread which makes it deadly in close combat.

This semi-automatic shotgun is rapid and can deliver a powerful blow at the same time if the player is close enough to the target. Despite its high damage, its reload isn’t too bad either. Having the SA1216 as your primary can make the Best Heavy Build to dominate over other players.

  • Close-range power.
  • A semi-automatic shotgun allows for more follow-up shots.
  • High rate of fire.
  • A narrower spread affects long-range shots.
  • Limited range.

2. M60

  • Why I Chose This: The M60 is also a good weapon choice because of its large ammo capacity and high firepower, which can give you an advantage in intense battles.

When it comes to the M60 in the finals, its high rate of fire and large capacity of ammunition can give you a significant firepower advantage. The M60 performs poorly in terms of recoil, but as long as the player gets a grip on the recoil, they will tear opponents apart.

  • Large ammunition.
  • High rate of fire.
  • Versatile weapon
  • Harsh recoil.
  • Lengthy reloading time

3. Flamethrower

Best Heavy Gun for Close-Quarter.

  • Why I Chose This: It is a unique and powerful choice because of its continuous damage. It is effective in close-quarter combats, meaning you should be close to the enemy and use your ammo wisely.

The Flamethrower may be extremely deadly in isolated areas and is fun to use. Still, its damage can sometimes be unsuccessful, providing faster classes enough time to show their reflexes and escape the flames. Flamethrowers are great for creating a wall of fire that makes it difficult for enemies to advance.

  • Can cause damage over time after the initial attack.
  • Can be effective for enemies hiding behind the wall or cover.
  • Narrower spread, which makes it good for crowd control.
  • Limited range.
  • Limited ammunition capacity.
  • Risk of collateral damage if used indoors.

My Take On The Best Heavy Guns

Having spent over 30 hours in The Finals, I think that the heavy guns are mainly for supporting teammates and tanking damages. SA1216 has a high rate of fire and damage; its high rate of fire can be useful in close-quarter combats. However, you should choose a weapon according to your playstyle.
