The Akimbo Fire MACRO (aka MOD), is a phenomenal feature in titles that support dual wielding weapons, such as COD, Red Dead Redemption, Goldeneye 007, Counter Strike, and Borderlands. It enables players to fire two weapons simultaneously at the maximum rate of fire possible, providing an intense and immersive gaming experience.
The MOD works by applying the Rapid Fire MOD to both weapons. A perfect choice for players who prefer wielding compact weapons with a higher ammo capacity.
The most notable benefits of the Akimbo Fire MOD include:
- Increased Firepower: Having two weapons firing at the same time at the highest rate of fire can greatly increase the amount of damage dealt to enemies.
- Increased Fire Rate: Players can fire both weapons at the highest rate of fire while holding down the fire button instead of rapidly pressing both fire buttons.
- Help Players with Disabilities: Assist players who have difficulty pulling triggers due to physical limitations or disabilities.
- Strategic Advantage: Players can use the akimbo fire mod to surprise their opponents and gain a strategic advantage in battle.
- Cronus Advantage: By having the advantage of Cronus Zen, players can feel more confident in their abilities and play more aggressively, leading to more wins.
To put it simply, using the Akimbo Fire MOD can give players an advantage by allowing them to fire two weapons at the highest rate of fire which is possible which potentially results in more kills and better scores.
"Weapon Bloom" is an effect that refers to the spread of bullets that occurs when firing a weapon. This can reduce the accuracy of a player's shots, making it more difficult to hit targets, especially at longer ranges.
Bloom was introduced to the mechanics of most modern shooters as a way to level the playing field for lower-skilled players and provide a challenge for higher-skilled players. In this way, bloom can be seen as a balancing mechanism, designed to make the game more accessible to players of all skill levels, while still providing a competitive and challenging experience for the most skilled players.
Most of the major titles have a certain amount of Weapon Bloom; the worst being:
- Battlefield (All Weapons)
- Battle Royales (Almost All)
- Halo (DMR)
- Warzone 2.0 (Battle Rifle & Marksman Rifle)
- MW2 (Battle Rifle & Marksman Rifle)
The weapons most impacted by bloom are semi-automatics when used with a Rapid Fire MOD set to higher rates of fire. On the other hand, slower rates of fire reduce the spread of bullets, lowering the bloom effect.
Additionally, HIP firing (shooting without aiming down sights) results in a much larger bloom compared to aiming down sights (ADS), which offers improved accuracy and control.
The video below showcases a semi-automatic weapon using a Rapid Fire MOD, HIP firing at both fast and slow rates. By comparing the two, it's clear to see the difference in bloom - with the fast rate resulting in an erratic expansion of the crosshair, while the slower rate maintains a tight crosshair pattern, demonstrating improved accuracy.
Keep your cool, cowboy! Just remember, fire slow and sidestep like a matador, and you'll tame that Bloom in no time! 😄
- Adjustable Rapid Fire: Set to a slow rate of fire (usually 200ms)
- Burst Fire: Set hold time to 400ms, release time of 350ms
- Controlled Fire: Set to a low time (usually 100ms)
- Dynamic Rapid Fire: Apply light pressure to the fire trigger
- Strafe Shot: Battle Royales Only. Set to a low time (usually 100ms)
This is what the source code of an Akimbo Fire MACRO (aka MOD) looks like. Note that all button labels match their corresponding buttons on other controllers. For example, if the script says XB1_LT (Left Trigger), it will also press the Left Trigger (L2) on a PlayStation controller.
The MOD comes in two flavors, one designed specifically for use with semi-automatic firearms, and the other optimized for fully automatic weapons.
Fully Automatic Weapons: This version of the Akimbo Fire MACRO (aka MOD) produces a constant trigger output.
Semi-Automatic Weapons: This version of the Akimbo Fire MACRO (aka MOD) repeatedly holds and releases both triggers. If you use this version with a fully automatic weapon, it will actually reduce the rate of fire. So yeah, don't do that.
