5 Payday Akimbos Every Player Should Try

Last week MoustachedPotatoes and ‘uh’ requested a video covering akimbo weapons, since they, and myself have trouble telling them all apart. I confess that for the most part I just use the Akimbo STRYKs for everything, but after some research, I’ve learned about other builds that favor specific akimbos. So today we’re covering 5 Akimbo Weapons Every Player Should Try

#1 – The Parabellum pistols can hit 32 concealment, the highest possible for non-DLC players. This is pretty great considering the amazing damage output. Speaking of damage output:

#2 – The Goliath shotguns will probably never be as famous as the Judges, but they absolutely are worth trying out. They have an insane per-shot damage output, great ammo pickup, and reloads its whole clip in one go, making them feel like a DMR you don’t have to aim.

#3 – The Akimbo Broomsticks, another high-damage pistol and one of the only high-damage pistols that can accept laser sights. Unlike the Parabellum, you can reach very good accuracy and stability even without DLC mods.

It’s also the only pistol you can mod into an assault rifle. Picture by BouncyVEVO

But if you want perfect 100s in accuracy and stability, try:

#4 – The Akimbo CR 805Bs can hit their best stats even without DLC mods, and are best used in semi-auto since they 2-shot most heavy units. Remember that all semi-auto akimbos are fired twice whenever you pull the trigger. If you want to go for full-auto, don’t forget

#5 – The Kobus 90s are my personal favorite akimbo SMGs because they have the best possible accuracy and stability of the SMGs that specialize in truly blistering rates of fire, not to mention the speed-pull magazines let you reload in under 2 seconds without using skills.

Bonus #6 – This gun doesn’t actually exist, I just wanted to take the opportunity to say that I really wish Overkill would add Akimbo 5/7s. A fast-firing, low ammo count, armor-penetrating, low accuracy primary would be an extremely unique weapon in the Payday arsenal, not to mention it would give base-game players another armor-penetrating primary besides the Platypus. Considering almost every other pistol got an akimbo version, I’m hoping Akimbos 5/7s were just held back because they were buggy or something, and we can look forward to seeing them in a future update.

That’s all for this week, as always this is aabicus with the SPUF of Legend, keep those helmets flying!
