Favorite mid/long range weapon round 4 onwards in ranked. The ability to grief teams by destroying all their doors is really, really nice.

ID: hflyuzp

Knocking a door and some poor shmuk while they're using a battery crouching behind the door is the best feeling.

I only hit every 1 in 5 shots with this thing, can't use it at all.

But if you get hit with it out in the open you're done, the slowdown means you have no chance. Especially at Diamond + level.

ID: hflk8po

Slowdown is the same on every weapon.

ID: hflleux

Obviously. But the consistent slow firing + range is what makes it dangerous. Most weapons burst at you and if you make it through 2/3 seconds you're fine to run without slow down.

A rampage can keep you slowed for 5/6 seconds because of its fire rate.

Quite a good gun, but it would be more balanced with a wider bullet spread.

5 : Anonymous2021/10/06 12:31 ID: hflhhvw

It's a good parts holder for a flatline

6 : Anonymous2021/10/06 10:59 ID: hfl8pwq

When this bad boy is revved up with a thermite, up close it rips like a R99

7 : Anonymous2021/10/06 15:19 ID: hfm2x10

Get one of these on drop, and your likelihood of surviving the first five minutes increases massively. When you've got attachments for it, you're set for the rest of the match.

I still get tempted by every flatline I go past, though- until I've got a few thermites in my bag.

The only thing worse than a three-stack in Arenas all with L-Stars is a three-stack in Arenas all with Rampages.

ID: hfmvrqo

I'd take fighting a rampage over an lstar any day

ID: hfng17x

funnily enough, i've never actually come across that. But the devotion three-stack (during rampage event, when it was gold for cheap,) hurt.

9 : Anonymous2021/10/06 13:07 ID: hfllh47

The only thing i dislike is that the fire rate seems at a perfect point where the slow effect keeps happening when you get hit by it. By far the most annoying gun to get moving again when youre shot at, for me atleast

ID: hflo4n0

Slowness from getting shot lasts 0.25s and has 3s cooldown.

10 : Anonymous2021/10/06 13:18 ID: hflmp5z

Hands you thermite

"Whats this?"

"Its a mystery mousekatool that will help us later"

turns around and sees revtain pushing

11 : Anonymous2021/10/06 19:26 ID: hfn2hp2

My favorite weapon

ID: hfnl8sm

Yeah seriously. I slap a 3x on that thing it's a beast mid range and you can easily knock a 2 or full squad in the open. The slowness of regular fire let's you read adjust aim with their movements. And once you rip the thermal close range it's as good as a turbo D.

12 : Anonymous2021/10/06 11:01 ID: hfl8wtn

I feel like it needs a nerf to it's recoil but at the same time I love this thing in its current state

ID: hfl9iw2

imho hipfire accuracy should be nerfed to force ads'ing. The damage output is fine, if the price is low mobility.

ID: hflafla

Hip fire is horrible, I rarely hit my bullets. I can only ads

13 : Anonymous2021/10/06 15:23 ID: hfm3hil

Its pretty good. Dont see it as completly broken though as many are saying. Can hear someone charge it up from reaaaally far away, and I can't imagine its intentional.

Like I can hear someone charge it from 150m away. I cant even hear footsteps from 30ft away in a fight, but ill hear the 3rd party charging a rampage!

14 : Anonymous2021/10/06 10:04 ID: hfl4pbw

I Like it

15 : Anonymous2021/10/06 19:01 ID: hfmythi

I like that it breaks doors, but can't get the aim down for this one, maybe the slow rate of fire makes it way harder to control than the other guns.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/06 14:48 ID: hflyjo8

This thing is a beast at close, medium and long range, aaaand its one of the easiest to control recoil patterns in the game.

I'll be sad when they nerf it, until then Ima spam the hell out of it lol.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/06 10:41 ID: hfl7c4l

Poor man's Spitfire, I can't believe people were crying for it to be nerfed on release

ID: hfl9kgq

they still do a lot!

18 : Anonymous2021/10/06 20:07 ID: hfn8a9e

Annoying as fuck to die to. LMGs in this game are just annoying as hell in general. No gun should be able to shoot for 10 seconds straight without major recoil or damage drop-off or SOMETHING.

19 : Anonymous2021/10/06 20:16 ID: hfn9n4j

Hate dying to this gun. Hate using this gun.

20 : Anonymous2021/10/06 21:17 ID: hfni7o5

Great addition to the game.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/06 14:20 ID: hflup9y

Love this gun early game. I also can only hit my shots when I don't have a scope on it. I love the iron sight, but if I put a 2x or a 3x, you can be sure I'm not hitting shit. I don't know why.

22 : Anonymous2021/10/06 14:28 ID: hflvpt9

This gun is fantastic as a G-7 clone when you have a 3x on it. Just tap trigger and you absolutely beam everyone

23 : Anonymous2021/10/06 14:46 ID: hfly7s1

It’s my must pick secondary, switched from 30 30 because it’s more reliable close range. Never use the thermite shit tho

ID: hfm0l18

Charging it with a thermite makes the Rampage an absolute nightmare.

24 : Anonymous2021/10/06 15:17 ID: hfm2o2u

This gun is too good it’s ridiculous lmao.

25 : Anonymous2021/10/06 15:48 ID: hfm71zr

Fucking annoying to play against but made slightly less annoying because not everyone is running it. I still think it needs more recoil for how insane it is at range but Respawn are very reluctant to add more recoil to guns unless its the Havoc for some reason.

ID: hfmdfiz

unless its the Havoc for some reason.


ID: hfmohs0

The havoc has the same DPS as the R99 with a bigger mag. If it had higher accuracy then the turbocharged version would be at the level of a care package item.

I would personally love it since I main Loba and can usually find a turbocharger but I can see why they keep it nerfed.

26 : Anonymous2021/10/06 11:32 ID: hflbptx

I know it’s a lmg but I hate how long it can sustain fire for

27 : Anonymous2021/10/06 12:45 ID: hfliwsj

Charged up this gun is disgusting

28 : Anonymous2021/10/06 13:11 ID: hfllwu1

I love this gun, its perfectly balanced for medium ranges and the thermite gives it that edge for close range hipfire.

29 : Anonymous2021/10/06 14:38 ID: hflx307

i like to use this in round 1 and sometimes round 2 of ranked arenas, since few guns have the off-the-box ammo capacity this has (28 rounds), enough to suppress and damage any enemy it comes into contact with.

also, i mainly play revenant, and his crouch stance really helps in those close battles while i dish some damage.

30 : Anonymous2021/10/06 18:29 ID: hfmucpc

Best weapon in all time history. Change it at your peril.

31 : Anonymous2021/10/06 19:55 ID: hfn6nwk

1 person it's essentially fine just done be caught in the open but when people are syncing shots with 3? Absolutely ridiculous.

32 : Anonymous2021/10/06 14:43 ID: hflxsnd

Flatline > Rampage > Hemlock > 30-30

ID: hflzxq3

Almost good comrade. But you still missing wingman and prowler in the comparison

ID: hfmegn0

Weird ranking, since you are mixing full auto with burst and three different weapon classes. It's not just heavy ammo weapons since two are missing.

For heavy ammo primary weapons, mine would be: Flatline > Rampage > Wingman > Prowler > Hemlok > 30-30.

If we are talking about secondaries where something like an R301 is the primary, it would be Prowler > Wingman > Rampage > 30-30 > Flatline > Hemlok.

33 : Anonymous2021/10/06 11:59 ID: hfle7u1

Feels like a well-balanced weapon. Somewhat underwhelming, but has a niche when unboosted, and is incredibly strong (I'd say intentionally overpowered) when boosted if it weren't for the limited duration.

34 : Anonymous2021/10/06 13:16 ID: hflmh84

Y'all remember when everyone was like "Omg it's broken Respawn plz nerf it's so op!!!11" and then everyone forgot about it? It's still very good people jjst prefer other options

ID: hflmr9g

Thermited rampage is still one of the strongest weapon in the game

35 : Anonymous2021/10/06 19:18 ID: hfn17h8

Am i alone when i think the bloom of the rampage is terrible? Like recoil isn't hard, but the bullets still spray a decent amount. I've seen "its better than the g7" comparisons a ton and i just dont get it.

The gun is trash unless hopped up in most situations
