357 Top Tips
Slow & Steady
The best way to make the most of 357 is to regularly aim at the aiming points (ADS) and try to predict the enemy’s position. Use the pistol’s range advantage to choose your contact point. Usually, the pistol is guaranteed to kill two times, so timing your shot wisely.
The low rate of fire makes accuracy even more important now. Missing out on the first shot with 357 is unfortunate. To reduce the likelihood of missing out on the initial shot, try to keep track of where the enemy is moving and aim a bit ahead of their position so that the player enters the shot.
Playing with speed and aggression can be difficult with this particular weapon but it can be done. To succeed, aim for the upper half of the body to secure a headshot or weaken enemies so that they are more susceptible to a one-to-two quick punch.
