Mozambique Review - Is It Good?
There is no doubting that the Mozambique Shotgun has improved significantly since its Season 9 rejig, but we're still sceptical to use it over some of the other shotguns available.
It is arguably a better alternative to the P2020 Pistol if you're looking for a free, second gun option for in Arenas, but we wouldn't be using it in the later rounds, that's for sure.
