First let’s talk about the effectiveness of prime of the Fennec. The gun shreds at short range, and kills extremely fast. It’s time to kill is so great that the enemy doesn’t stand a chance to even react, if you connect your first bullet. It’s fire rate is the fastest in the game, even faster than the MSMC SMG.

The Akimbo perk has made the gun more viable, since you get 70 bullets with the extended mag, and you can build the gun around hip firing attachments, to improve your accuracy. Currently, it’s the most used gun alongside HVK-30, which is the best Assault Rifle in the game right now.
