Primary Weapon: sg8 Punisher Shotgun

The sg8 Punisher shotgun is Nova Gaming’s top choice for beginners. It has a large magazine, deals significant damage, and has manageable recoil. Unlike other starting weapons, it outperforms in terms of strength and effectiveness.

Secondary Weapon: p19 Redeemer Machine Pistol

The p19 Redeemer machine pistol is Nova Gaming’s recommended secondary weapon for new players. It offers fully automatic fire, the same damage as the starting pistol, a larger capacity, and reduced recoil. Overall, it provides a better experience and performance.

Grenades: Personal Preference

When it comes to grenades, Nova Gaming explains the trade-offs between different options. The grenade from the early battle pass has a shorter fuse time, making it more effective against bugs that walk away. However, it deals 250 less damage than the starter grenade, which is better suited for stronger bugs.
