Best FJX Imperium loadouts and attachments
- Rear Grip: Skull-40
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Stock: FJX Kilo-Tac
- Bolt: FJX Blast
- Barrel: Tac-Command 19”
After spending some time playing around with the new sniper, we can attest that the above loadout is the best for the FJX Imperium loadout we’ve come across so far.
Our chosen loadout is a careful balance of accuracy, decent mobility, and damage range, with an emphasis particularly on raising aim down sight speed. The above should set you up nicely to maximise the gun’s one-shot kill potential while mitigating its low rate of fire, with the only variable you have to worry about is your aiming skills.
The Skull-40 grip helps improving quick-scoping performance by boosting ADS. With the VLK LZR 7MW laser, you’ll get a faster aim down sight speed, sprint to fire speed, and aiming stability, allowing you to pull out the gun and sight significantly quicker whatever the situation, tapping into the quick-scoping potential of the FJX Imperium even when heavily mobile.
Then we have the FJX Kilo-Tac, again, ups ADS sided by improved sprint speed, sprint to fire, and crouch movement speed, elevating your overall mobility and quick-scoping when using the Imperium. With the FJX Blast, you get improved rechambering speed for a shorter reload time, lessening some of the FJX’s low rate of fire. Finally, the Fahrenheit 29″ barrel increases damage range, which helps leveling up the Imperium’s long-range lethatlity.
