How to get most kills using DBS

To get as many kills as possible with the DBS, there are certain things players should keep in mind. The DBS is the most powerful weapon in close combat so it is important to get as close to the enemy as possible. The DBS offers 14 shots with 2 shots in each barrel, so players must use it as a burst weapon and should  peek and shoot while holding the Third Person Perspective (TPP) angle.

Precision is important with DBS or any shotgun, players will need to practice tracking enemies in the Training ground to master this weapon. Although the headshots deal more damage, it should be noted that it is not ideal to aim at the head with shotguns. Players can aim at the chest height when using the DBS or any other shotgun to get the maximum number of finishes.
