What’s up YouTube, Varnesh here, and welcome to the channel. Today we have another Epic Weapon Review, a series where we look at the perks and handling of epic weapons to determine if they are worth your hard earned salvage. And this time we are taking a look at one of the early OP Weapons of Infinite Warfare. Let’s dig right in! I’ve been looking at the R3KT (or REKT) for quite a while now, and when the salvage starting adding up to about eight thousand, I figured it was time to splurge on this long sought after Assault Rifle. So let’s take a look at theR3KT, talk about it’s perks, and then I’ll go over my class setup as well as dig into the weapon some more before giving you my final thoughts! The main perk for the R3KT is Break Point.
Break point give the normal three-round burst fire R3K a firing mode that is fully automatic with reduced recoil. So the R3KT is a fully automatic weapon that has reduced recoil? Sign me up! Now you’ll still want to work on your recoil control with this weapon if you want to make sure your shots stay down range, but give it a couple matches and I am sure this won’t be a problem for you. The secondary perk that we get on the R3KT is Stockpile, which provides the weapon with increased ammo.
Increased ammo on a fully automatic weapon is just splendid, I couldn’t think of a better secondary perk, especially since I often find myself needing every ounce of that ammo in some games. So the synergy between the two perks seems to balance very well, and is a very desirable combination. The R3KT, in my opinion, is still one of the most desired and most used Epic Weapons out there, because the thing is just downright powerful. It has flirted with the devs here and there over weapon balancing in the past, and was just downright overpowered when the game first came out. Fast forward to June of 2017 and we now have an epic that feels epic compared to the other versions of the R3K.
Not to mention that the R3KT variant gives the weapon a totally different firing mode and playstyle. Now I am not bashing the three-round burst base R3K, because that weapon is still very good. I used it for several days before deciding that I wanted to purchase the epic variant, and I think I only had one or two games where I didn’t have a positive KD. Now the footage that you’re watching in the background doesn’t have an added sight on the weapon, and is something that I have since added to my class setup, in the form of an ELO sight. I think that it opens up the weapon just a bit more and makes it a bit easier to see, but it really comes down to just a matter of personal preference and what you’re used to using.
I will say that using the ELO sight does feel better when I am needing to put bullets… or energy pew pews or whatever they are… at a farther distance. Now on the topic of it being an energy weapon, I actually really like it, because it does regen ammo, so a full auto weapon that is going to regen ammo when you’re running to your next engagement is really nice. You’re still going to go through ammo like crazy, but with no extended mags available since it is an energy weapon, I will take what I can get! I really wish I had more negative critiques over this weapon. When it comes down to it, you just need to get used to the recoil, because if you can control that you’ll be able to get kills at any range.
So how do I setup to use the R3KT in games? Well it’s simple really. You already know that I am now using an ELO Sight and with that I add the usual Quickdraw with Foregrip and a Particle Amp. This setup has served me well, and I enjoy using it in game modes ranging from Team Deathmatch to Kill Confirmed and even Domination. Overall the R3KT is extremely fun to play with. It is going to serve you well on large, medium, and short maps making the thing a beast.
So, when it comes down to it you want to know if theR3KT is worth your hard earned salvage. HARD YES ON THIS ONE FOLKS. From day one of Infinite Warfare this has been one of the most sought after epic weapons, and continues to be a powerhouse in matchmaking. I didn’t get a chance to use it in Hardcore but I can imagine that it would perform just as well in hardcore modes.
The R3KT deserves one of your staple slots in create-a-class if you have the room for a backup class that is fun and powerful. So at the end of the day this is worth the four thousand salvage that I spent on it, and I am not looking back and have zero regrets. I even think that it will be the next weapon that I get Gold Camo on! Have you played with the R3KT? Do you think there is another Auto Rifle, other than the NV4 folks, that is on par with the R3KT?
