When fired in long bursts this weapon's ferocious recoil will actually make the Hacker 'lean' backwards, making aiming somewhat difficult at longer ranges. But between the huge magazines and decent damage output the Skorpion is a great go-to weapon when you need to shred a roomful of enemies in short order without worrying about battery power or reloading.
It is advisable to use the regular 50-round magazines in most situations and save the larger 100-round magazines for dealing with tougher enemies, or for rapidly engaging multiple threats. Few things will survive the wrath of a full 100-round magazine at close range.
|Slags (50) - Heavy, super-heated slugs.|
|Large Slags (100) - Slag rounds in a larger magazine.|
