Now, today I have my third Epic Weapon review for you, and this time it is the beast itself, the Mauler – Mammoth! Friends, I usually save my opinions for the end of the video, but I’ll start this whole review by saying that this could possibly be one of the most overpowered epic weapons currently in Infinite Warfare. Now keep in mind that I am making this video only 2 days after we’ve had 12 new weapon variants added to the quartermaster, which you can check out by clicking the card in the top right corner. However, I doubt that the Mauler Mammoth will lose it’s top dog spot anytime soon. Now the Mauler – Mammoth comes with two separate perks.
The first of which is “Heavy Hitter”. This perk doubles the damage of the Mauler but causes it to fire at a slower fire rate. Along side this slow fire rate comes the Sharpshooter perk, which gives you increased damage range, and this plays a huge role in the Mammoth being so OP. You’ll see in the gameplay footage that you’re watching that we are playing Frontline and that I am using the Phantom rig. I would recommend that this weapon be used in more tactical game modes if using anything other than the Merc Right, the reason I suggest the Merc Rig is so you can take advantage of the Man-at-Arms trait if you plan on running around the map. This trait will allow you to not be slowed down by LMG’s and it will actually feel like you’re using an Assault Rifle instead of an LMG. Now if you noticed when we were talking about the perks for the Mammoth, the Heavy Hitter icon actually has a 2 and an X. This is because the Mauler – Mammoth is a two shot kill weapon, at any range, no matter what.
Couple this with the Sharpshooter perk, and I have found myself in many scenarios where I have been able to outshoot a sniper while using the Mammoth. Where the Mammoth excels in being able to put a ton of bullets down range while only needing two to kill an enemy, it does lack in the speed of drawing up to the optic. And I do recommend running with an optic when you’re using the Mammoth. Using one will give you a bit more recoil control, because with getting a two shot kill weapon, you’re going to have to do some more work on controlling the recoil of the weapon when you’re trying to kill enemies farther away.
To this end I recommend that you use the VMC optic that practically removes recoil when you’re zoomed in. Now back to what I was talking about. The Mammoth lives up to it’s name in the fact that it wasn’t exactly designed for a game mode like Kill Confirmed where you are practically running around the map the whole game. Rather the Mammoth was designed for those of us that like being a little more tactical, say holding a Hardpoint, keeping an eye on a box in Search and Destroy of even Defender when you’re team is trying to protect someone holding the drone.
Not to say the Mammoth doesn’t perform well in game modes like Team Deathmatch, it just sometimes struggles to get kills quick enough some days. Do keep in mind that getting Point Blank kills are super fun and easy to get since you only need two bullets to kill. So the real question of the day is “Should I spend four thousand salvage on the Mauler Mammoth” and my short answer is “ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY” So there is also a long answer to this. Basically if you’re a person that likes to play Infinite Warfare more tactically then this weapon will make you an OP God and you’ll finally be the person you’re always pissed off at.
However if you’re a hardcore player, do more kill confirmed, or like your Team Deathmatch faster than Paul Walker in the Fast and the Furious, then you probably want to save your salvage for a weapon that would better serve your play style.
