You are after 11 rounds in VALUABLE and you’ve got a ring in your pocket. The sides change and one of your teammates takes the Shorty, the cheapest weapon in the game, just to try it out. Your chat is completely filled with messages from the enemy asking you to surrender the match and uninstall the game, player Shorty overwhelms the entire opposing team. It sounds like a fairy tale, but something similar happened to one of the players in VALUABLE subreddit.
A video uploaded to Reddit displayed an incredible Shorty ace at the start of the first pistol round in the second half of the match. As Omen, the player smoked Ascent’s A Main. Two enemies are pushed through it, and the agent makes sure to kill them both with sharp reflexes. Most players don’t pick up shields in pistol rounds and use their preferred secondary weapon, which makes it easy for players to get two lives with two consecutive shots.
He went back to the site and reloaded his weapon to find another player pushing through his smoke, and shot Shorty once more to hit the net again. Usually, players will stop and wait for their team to take down the opposing team from the middle. However, the Omen player realizes that his smoke can be used as a tool to catch enemy players by surprise.
He pushes through the smoke and kills the other Sova, knocking him off guard while camping in the smoke. He stepped back inside his smoke and reloaded his weapon. He has a hint of Killjoy’s location and the smoke disappears at the perfect time to give him a great shot at the ultimate enemy.
Omen players are known to be stealthy players all over the map. Combine that stealth trend with near-fatal jumps, and you’ve got a winner. The shadow overlays provide great smoke spots for players, who can use them to ambush opponents or simply camp in them to catch unsuspecting enemies passing by.
Shorty comes with a low price of 150 credits, but it offers little value in combat situations except in rare cases. Its only perfect quality is that it excels in close-range combat. The Shorty reloads after two shots, making it a terrible gun to use in protracted fights as the need to reload interferes with the player’s ability to kill more enemies.
Guns are often paired with expensive weapon options like the Operator to counter any short-range push. However, if the player has enough time to reload between battles and do gunfights at their own pace, it can be used to kill enemies.
