Watch in 1080p60! As with another atypical weapon, NS-7 PDW, at first I disliked Baron and considered it directly inferior. Using it with Extended Mags, I didn't feel the promised increased effective range. But a laser sight unlocked the potential and allowed me to effectively hip fire as if I was using an SMG. And when stars align, there still is the power of that 2 shot kill at close range. Finally having a shotgun that can do something even if the enemy isn't within handshake distance, I grew to love my Baron, and now consider it to be a competitive choice on the shotgun market. Of course, you still need to pace your shots, and make sure your aim is on target, and don't forget to take advantage of the tube magazine, reloading every time you get a chance.
