Strategy

The VLAD-1000, despite it's low tier and seemingly lackluster stats, is a very powerful weapon, and a must-have in any Berserker's kit.

In single-fire mode, the VLAD can be used as a somewhat accurate head-popper, allowing a Berserker to pick off Bloats standing behind crowds of zeds, or even Sirens/Husks, with some patience and kiting. It is also able to kill Crawlers in one body shot, as well as decap Stalkers, Gorefasts, and any variant of Clot.

In "shotgun" mode, the VLAD will fire a cluster of eight nails with each pull of the trigger, for a total of 200 damage if all nails connect. Coupled with a six round magazine (42/7 = 6), the VLAD, on any perk, has roughly the same burst potential as an M4 Combat Shotgun in the hands of a level 25 Support, at almost half the price and 2 less weight.

Nails fired from the VLAD have built-in penetration. This allows Berserkers to quickly (and safely) clear crowds of weak enemies, freeing them up to deal with bigger threats.

The VLAD, being an improvised weapon with no barrel to speak of, has very low accuracy. This is especially true in "shotgun mode", where the VLAD has a spread comparable to the Double-Barrel Shotgun. It is also less consistent, often sending out a lopsided blob as opposed to an even distribution of shot.

Firing the VLAD in "shotgun" mode will quickly deplete your magazine, resulting in a very long reload that, unlike with tube-fed shotguns, cannot be done incrementally, which also means it cannot be "topped up" without sitting through the entire reload. Because of this, the VLAD's sustained DPS suffers greatly.

Gains all the perk bonuses from Support thanks to multi-perk weapon system.
