If the compressed energy in the core of this weapon is released all at once, the resulting force would be enough to bring down a large creature. The comparatively small energy bursts released with each squeeze of the ASMD's trigger are still more than enough to put a world of hurt on most targets.
The ASMD can be used as a "scopeless" sniper, due to the superb range, accuracy, and power. However, it cannot "headshot" like the real sniper, and typically is found a good distance from any nearby sniping perches. Avoid using the Shock Combo excessively, as extra shots are used with combos. Shock Combos can, however, be used as a "vehicle repeller," due to the strength of the Shock Combo and it's knockback. This is enough to kill Mantas passing by too close or severely damage a full-health Scorpion. Another thing to note is that the kinetic force of the impact of both fire modes is enough to knock some targets back. This can be useful for knocking targets off ledges to their doom.
