The Triple Barrel Gatling power is comparable to that of the Minigun: both can kill opponents normally in a second. However, unlike the latter, it is lighter in weight, allowing for more mobility. Additionally, it also has better accuracy, and its cross-hairs don't expand too much while moving, maintaining a good aim on the target. But it is not without its disadvantages. Unlike the Minigun, it can only hold 50 bullets in a clip, forcing you to reload and lose bullets more frequently. It also has a slightly slower fire rate, but the superior damage per bullet does compensate for this. As with most other automatic guns, damage is inversely proportional to the distance of the target. Other than that, this and the Minigun are equals, or you can say it's in between the Siege Cannon and the Minigun.
Camping - The best strategy for heavy machine guns. As you are slowed down by the weapon agility, instead look for a favorable spot, camp there and stand still while shooting anything that moves. Standing still causes the cross-hairs to have its original size, which is smaller than while moving.
Run And Gun - Taking advantage of it unusually high agility, scout around the map while taking out any threat that may approach or on your line of sight. Keep in mind that you'd be more susceptible for counter-attacks or ambush from the back with this tactic compared to the above strategy.
