Mosin-Nagant is a craftable four-star Russian RF who, like all charged shot RF, abides by the ‘one shot, one kill’ motto. What sets Mosin-Nagant apart from the rest of the charged shot RFs is her relatively low initial Skill cooldown of 10 seconds — one of the lowest available cooldowns for a charged shot Skill. Although the price to pay for a shorter cooldown is a lower Damage modifier, this does not hinder Mosin’s ability to perform her role at all. Beware though, that just because Mosin-Nagant is more effective than her counterparts at the boss-killing niche it does not mean that she is any less situational. Therefore, prioritizing Mosin over all-rounder RFs such as M14, SVD, and WA2000 is not recommended.
Relatively Short CD
Mosin’s 10 second Cooldown is relatively short when compared to other charged shot RFs.
Despite Mosin’s high Damage stat, her terrifyingly low Rate of Fire hurts her DPS by a great deal.
Mosin-Nagant — like all charged shot RFs — is forced into a niche due to the subpar DPS and mobbing capability caused by her Skill.
Mosin’s relatively short Initial Cooldown does little to help her viability as charged shots are forced into a niche by nature. To add to this, Mosin’s Rate of Fire is abysmally low even for RF standards at 30 RoF; this puts her capability at dealing with lesser mobs as one of the worst in class. Mosin-Nagant’s special equipment, the Hayha Memory Chip —which can be farmed in Chapter 5-4N— does nothing to help remedy for her weakness as it only adds more damage to the already lethal T-Doll.
Mosin-Nagant, however, holds her place as the second best charged shot RF firmly, only lagging behind Springfield, who has higher RoF — and this status can be solely attributed to Mosin’s relatively low Initial Cooldown. Even though Mosin sacrifices speed of fire for higher damage, this does not hinder her ability to one-shot bosses in any way, effectively rendering her a better choice over ‘large nukes’ such as M99 and NTW-20.
It should be noted that the Hayha Memory Chip grants Mosin a very specific usage in basic data simulation, as it makes her basic attack the strongest out of all RFs and allows for clear times below the one second mark. In practical applications, though, it is not as useful.
Overall, Mosin-Nagant is a very situational RF whose niche will not prove necessary in any stage of the game, but she is still among the best the charged shot RFs. Less specialized RFs will generally perform better than she will, but at the very least she does have some notable strengths.
Damage Buffing HGs
To make the best out of her Skill, Mosin needs to one-shot the enemy boss, and therefore her Damage stat should be focused on when it comes to buffs. HGs that can help achieve this are Mk23, Grizzly, SAA.
Springfield complements Mosin-Nagant perfectly as they share the same Skill and stat values. Springfield’s exclusive rounds also help her clear mobs more effectively, which is something Mosin particularly struggles with.
Mosin-Nagant should always be used alongside Springfield as they perform the same niche at the same efficiency, and Springfield’s match rounds help complement Mosin’s poor mob clearing capability.
The 3-line rifle — more commonly known as Mosin-Nagant — is a Russian bolt-action rifle developed from 1882 to 1891. The Mosin-Nagant saw use by a myriad of countries and it is estimated that there are over 60 million units in existence.
