Jakobs Manufacturer Overview

Jakobs weapons are renowned for their precise, hard hitting but slow shots. Catering to all the gunslingers in the galaxy, Jakobs weapons reward the methodical and precise shooter. Their pronounced vertical recoil and slow rate of fire makes handling them somewhat challenging at first, but the rewards greatly outweigh the initial barrier: each critical hit will ricochet at least 1 bullet to a nearby enemy, making Jakobs weapons extremely ammo efficient and deceptively good for clearing.

  • Critical hits ricochet 1 (or more) bullet(s) at a nearby enemy
