Here are the best attachments for the .357
- Compensator (Muzzle)
- .357 Long (Barrel)
- Heavy Duty Trigger (Trigger Action)
- FSS Raider Stock (Rear Grip)
- Sleight of Hand (Perk)
This set of attachments keeps the pistol very stable when taking on long-range gunfights. The compensator adds some much-needed recoil control alongside the FSS Raider Stock.
Sleight of hand increases the reload speed enough to reload the chamber quickly when in the heat of battle.
For the first perk, E.O.D is a perfect fit when using this particular weapon. Increase your resistance to incoming explosives to help keep you alive on the battlefield.
Perk number two can be a personal preference but we have selected Restock. Rather than just having one piece of lethal and tactical equipment, have the equipment recharge over 30 seconds so you never run out of utilities again.
When wanting to use a secondary, Amped is essential for the third and final perk slot, Fast switching between primary and secondary weapons can be the difference between taking down your next opponent or untimely death.
Slow & Steady
The best way to get the most out of the 357 is to aim down the sights (ADS) frequently and attempt to predict where the enemy may be located. Use the range advantage of the pistol to choose your point of contact. Typically, the pistol guarantees a two-hit kill so time your shots wisely.
The low rate of fire makes accuracy even more important than it already is. Missing the first shot with the 357 is very punishing. In order to reduce the chance of missing the initial shot, attempt to track where the enemy is moving and aim slightly ahead of their position so the player walks into the shot.
Playing with speed and aggression can be tricky with this particular weapon but it can be done. To succeed, aim for the upper half of the body to either secure a one-shot headshot or weaken the enemy to a level where they are vulnerable to a quick one-two shot punch.
