The Explosive Minigun is a weapon introduced in the Chinese New Year 2017 Update. It boasts excellent damage, excellent range, good accuracy and good agility. It can be purchased by buying either the Great Luck Chinese Pack for $54.99 or the Golden Hero Equipment for $17.99 . The damage per bullet of this weapon can be considered roughly the same as the Howitzer Gun.
The weapon has a lots of Agility, so the Run And Gun strategy could be effective. Try to use at least one health boosting gear so that you will not auto-kill when trying to kill enemies. This weapon has a great rate of fire; and thus will kill both enemies and Nians quickly. Avoid shooting enemies to close to you, as your fire rate and damage per shot could make you auto-kill easily.
When against Red Hero Armor users, do not be scared, as it is very easy to kill them. As mentioned before, that the damage per shot of this weapon is roughly the amount of the Howitzer Gun damage per shot, and the Howitzer takes about 6-7 shots to kill Red Hero Armor users, and with the great fire rate of the weapon, a user wearing Red Hero Armor, Black Hero Armor or Anti-Explosive Pack for you, as your fire rate can kill them easily. Camping works well with this weapon, as it has great Range. Stand in a spot on the map and kill anyone you see.
