The Ripper is a very unique weapons. It is a hybrid weapon which means it is two weapons in one so the ripper can turn into an Assault Rifle and an SMG which makes it a useful weapon for any type on encounters. If you have to clear out a room, switch to the SMG and if you see an enemy at long range, switch to the Assault Rifle and take him out. The SMG mode has very low recoil which makes this gun quite effective at medium range as well.
The Devastation DLC features four new multiplayer maps brand new, never before seen maps. The maps are called Behemoth, Collision, Ruins and Unearthed.
Behemoth is a very unique map. Players battle on top of a giant bucket wheel excavator. This map has long lines of sight which makes it an ideal map for players who like to use Assault Rifles, LMGs and Snipers but SMGs and Shotguns can come in handy when entering the control rooms which are small and beneficial for players who use close range weapons.
Players battle on a cargo ship that has crash into New York’s bridge. A ship filled with containers makes this map ideal for players who like to use SMGs and Shotguns. Players with a run and gun play style will have a lot of fun on this map but Snipers can post up in a few positions too so be careful.
Take on your enemies in a ancient Mayan temple. Ruins is a map a lot of players will like because this map caters to both Close-Range and Long-Range players.
