The Nail Gun is a primary weapon for the Soldier class in Blitz Brigade. It is the fourth most devastating weapon for the Soldier, behind the Elapser, The Hooligan, and the Christmas special Candy Blast. This weapon was removed soon after game release for unknown reasons and was placed back as a 'new weapon'. It is considered one of the best primaries in its class. Unlike the other weapons in the Soldier's primary weapon arsenal, the Nail Gun has aiming capabilities. However, to make up for this, it has a Bleeding DOT effect when fully upgraded, making headshots too much for any class to handle. It is deadly at close range, but easily outclassed by the Reckoner and Rosebud at greater distances. The rate of fire is great; however, a real nail gun does not have a great of fire.
