  • Kraken shoots two bullets in one burst. Practice is recommended to fully master this weapon. Increasing the weapons rate of fire decreases the gap between the two bullets initial impacts.
  • Drop your aim to negate the kick on the second shot; with practice you can snipe ranged targets - hitting with both bullets. Aim for the chest region, and the recoil will knock the second bullet up, resulting in a headshot. 


  • The Kraken was released on the 14th of February, 2013 with update 6.3.
