Shatterline has a variety of different weapons for players to choose from, all of which are vastly different in their performance. While the first tier of weapons is quite diverse, one such gun seems to stand out from the others, and that is the XM-27 Pacifier Assault Rifle. The XM-27 Pacifier is a great all-purpose weapon that performs remarkably well from mid to long ranges, but also holds up against Submachine Guns by performing moderately well for close-quarters engagements. The gun is heavy hitting and has the highest stability among all the Assault Rifles in the game, making it an exceptional choice for any player looking to dominate in Shatterline. In this guide, you will find the best class setup for the XM-27 Pacifier.
The AFS LEX scope is a perfect scope attachment that provides a large field of view, giving players plenty of peripheral vision to spot any enemies on either side of their scope while aiming down sights. The 1.2x magnification of this sight ensures that players are not zoomed in too much when aiming down sights, again providing plenty of peripheral vision making it the perfect choice for players who want to easily flick between multiple players during gunfights.
If you have not unlocked the aforementioned attachment, then the FS Falcon and the FS-13 Hamster are both viable choices. Both of these scope attachments offer a higher level of magnification, providing more precision at longer ranges. However, the AFS LEX does offer no drawbacks on the weapon itself and also has the added bonus of giving players 10% increased movement speed while aiming-down-sights.
The TVG-FG MK.1 is a grip attachment that offers the benefit of reducing your weapon recoil by 7%. While the Grab 505 is easily attainable and offers 20% increased aiming speed and weapon selection speed, prioritizing reducing recoil for an Assault Rifle is definitely a must for ensuring that the weapon performs well at longer ranges. Furthermore, with the next attachment being the D-AR ARMAG M5 magazine attachment, players will not need to make use of the increased weapon selection speed anyway, because your primary will have a larger magazine.
D-AR ARMAG M5
The D-AR ARMAG M5 attachment provides the XM-27 Pacifier with a larger magazine size, bumping up the number of rounds from 30 to 50. Having a large number of rounds negates the risk of getting shot whilst reloading, whilst also making it a viable weapon for engaging with multiple opponents, because players are able to keep their weapon up longer before needing to reload. This attachment choice also provides the added benefit of being able to prefire corners and key chokepoints without the worry of burning through your ammunition so soon.
This attachment does reduce your reload speed by 25% and also reduces your aim down sights speed by 10%. However, an extra 20 rounds in your magazine outweighs the drawbacks of a slower reload speed. Although suffering from a slower aim-down-sights speed may come at a disadvantage, the hip fire on the XM-27 Pacifier is remarkably accurate and reliable for players who aren’t given enough time to aim-down-sights.
For players who have not unlocked this attachment, then using the FCL FM-11 magazine attachment is also a viable choice. This attachment provides a 15% increase in reload speed which, much like the previous attachment, negates the risk of being caught off guard whilst reloading.
While the previous attachments reduce the need to swap to a secondary weapon during gunfights due to the high ammo capacity your weapon will have, ensuring that you carry a reliable Pistol will prove useful just in case you encounter an enemy in those situations where you are unable to pop a reload.
The G5 EARL is a compact and reliable Sidearm that has the highest accuracy among all the weapons of its type. While the gun fails to compete with the damage output of most weapons, this weapon shines in being consistent and easily controllable, making it a reliable weapon to switch to when you are unable to reload your primary. Furthermore, all players already have the G5 EARL unlocked, making it highly accessible among the player base.
The U22 SVAROG is a high-powered revolver that provides a high amount of damage per shot. This gun is highly effective and medium-range, taking an average of two shots (or a single shot to the head) to eliminate a player. With this sidearm proving to be effective at most ranges and dealing out a high amount of damage, it is the perfect swap-to weapon for players who are highly accurate with their shots.
Whilst the G5 EARL and the U22 SVAROG prove to be effective weapons at medium range, the LUPRA COMPATTA outshines both up close. This unique secondary weapon is a double-barrel shotgun that deals a devastating amount of damage to enemies within close vicinity of the user. If you choose to run this secondary, it will keep you prove useful against enemies who like to get a little too close to you, whilst the XM-27 Pacifier keeps you covered for medium to long-range engagements.
The Operator you choose to run with this class will all be down to personal preference. However, with the fast-paced nature of Shatterline, prioritizing characters that are fast and agile will provide useful for multiple in-game scenarios. Below are the best Operators to run with this class setup.
- Malva: Malva is a rather agile Operator who is the perfect choice for players who are aggressive because you can immediately disengage from a fight, heal up, and then reengage with full health.
- Orbit: Orbit is rather agile due to his dash ability, which is great for side-strafing, instantly getting close to opponents, and reaching places usually inaccessible to most Operators. Orbits Ultimate is also great as you are able to withstand a decent amount of incoming damage at the cost of reduced movement speed.
Now that you have learned the optimal class setup for the XM-27 Pacifier, go out there and dominate your Shatterline matches. Looking for the best attachments and more for the Z-940 Drachen. Then check out the Z-940 Drachen Best Class Setup here at KeenGamer.
