Another Vanguard gun on the roster is a fan-favorite. The gun's mobility is top notch, making it one of the best choices to meddle in close-range combat. The comparatively slow fire rate can be nullified with the Recoil Booster.

If players hit their shots right within 12 meters, the gun can kill enemies in 560ms. It struggles a bit beyond that distance. The gun also has a great heatshot DPS, which makes it a very fast killing machine with the right aim.

The Welgun has 5.6% pick ratio among all the 2KD+ players. It also possesses a KD of 2.9, similar to the Owen gun.
