Really? I've tried so many times, but never been able to get a 3 star deer with the Lancaster 😯

I get 3 star coyotes and foxes with bolt acyion rifle though..

Do you just headshot with the Lancaster on deer?

Yep... And it worked before the Evans repeater atleast... I haven't been using Lancaster since Evans came out

^Lancaster seems to have some really odd damage outputs at times, almost like it's laughably a RNG based hit roll, in other words, it acts like a random crit generator. Express Ammo however tends to resolve that issue for the most part, you still hit that buck in the head from a crappy as hell angle, there's a good chance it will go down a star still, but Express Ammo in the Lancaster tends to make it a decent all purpose weapon, Express for hunting, Normal for Gang Hideouts.

Evans repeater just purely because you can fire 26 rounds without having to reload.

@Wastelander (Suzuki) you should really use special ammo for gang hideouts to get that extra 5 xp per kill ! 

I normally use express for hideouts and splitpoint for pvp

Oh trust me I do use special ammo, I got like a back log of at least 900 rounds of Express Ammo for Repeaters, Revolvers, and Rifles in my postbox/lockbox. Sort of makes running out anytime soon something I don't have to worry about for a good while.

I know people are going to try and shoot me down, but I really like the Carbine.

Fully upgraded it is a beast. I love it!

It might be a little less accurate, but the damage and the fast reload is awesome!

I won't shoot you down. I've always thought the Carbine was under rated and always meant to get the hang of it. It just looks so silly

To be completely fair to the Carbine "Looking weird" it is a Spencer Carbine of anywhere from 1860 to 1865 vintage. Really the only Repeater we have from the same time period that doesn't look odd, is the Litchfield, which is a 1860s Henry Repeater (Which you can most likely guess why Henry Arms Company is still around and kickin' unlike Spencer. Even if Henry Arms somehow thinks they can charge like 1500$ for a damn lever action).

Sudden Last Minute Edit: Should probably note, that Spencer got sold off to Winchester in 1869, which means the Repeater Carbine's IRL version was only made for 9 years, however the IRL Litchfield was only made for about 6 before being replaced by a somewhat less expensive to make model, despite being a all around better gun design wise (No seriously, look up how to cycle the action on a Spencer, there's like 2 or 3 extra steps, unlike the Henry which is just cock the lever).

Well I decided to try out the Litchfield again. I'm already in love with it once more. Got quite a few good kills with it already and the hipfire actually isn't half bad with it. I said hell with it and dipped it in gold entirely. Looks quite nice :)

My accuracy on Evans is maxed out due to affinity lvl or whatever it is... Basically I've been using it so much that the accuracy has improved to the end of the bar, so I have absolutely no problems with accuracy... Same with LeMat

I quite like the design of the Carbine actually. It is small, easy to handle and packs a punch.

I customized mine so much that I would make a lot of people cringe if they saw what I have done to it =P

I’ve heard the Litchfield has got bad accuracy but a good punch. I’m using the Lancaster but I’ve got a couple questions:

 

1) how does the Evans compare to both the Litchfield and the Lancaster?

 

2) Since I’m using PIB, I counter the bloom and get 100% accuracy on my shots. It works well with the Lancaster but I’m thinking since the Litchfield has got more power to it, maybe using PIB would counter the bad accuracy that it comes with and that’d be beneficial to me, combined with the added punch, in that regard?

Just thought we could use this chart in this thread

The last pic is the evans.

 

So basically it is just the mag size where the Evans is better than the Lancaster.

@Chrismads Thanks a lot mate, good idea 👍

 

But I also don’t 100% trust the stats and the stats only...

 

If any of you use the Litchfield with PIB, do you experience that it gets an accuracy buff and becomes on par with the Lancaster accuracy-wise (but with the added damage)?

W PIB they're all 100% accurate. I'd say the Litchfield is by far the best if used with PIB because of the dmg. 

My own experience with Evans VS Lancaster is on par with the stats. It's not as accurate and does less damage

If you're using PIB you should be going for headshots. This negates the use of anything but your fastest weapon.

The bad accuracy on the Litchfield isn't that bad at all. If Split Point Ammo actually improves accuracy that might be your best bet outside of using PIB.

I don't think weapon affinity has been fixed yet. It literally only improves reload time. The accuracy and range improvements are not really there at all.

Anyone else not getting any kill counts on the Evans? Been using it for days on end and my social club stats say it has zero kills.

Social Club is bugged in terms of kills for me too. Got no kills for the LeMat revolvers, but have tons of kills for my... Litchfield? Even though I've almost never shot my Litchfield. Super weird.

Most accurate in quick auto-aim - Lancaster.

 

Highest damage on body shot with express - Litchfield. Two body shots.

 

Kill streak - Evans Repeater.

 

Fastest reload - Carbine Repeater.

 

I preferred Evans for PvP since I would kill loads before dying. But it's also better option for PvE as well in gang hideouts and missions. Accuracy and damage doesn't matter when you shoot the head with PIB.

I've got tons of kills with the Evans, but it doesn't feel more accurate or doing more damage. Yesterday I used it to do a camp defence thing and, even though it was cleaned, I needed 6-8 shots to finally kill an attacker. The day before I needed 3 shots each.

I’ve been using the Carbine since launch because... well bc I’m cheap af lol. But also bc I used the bolt-action for mostly everything, I really like its sound and its reloading animation, very stylish lol. But I realized thanks to the forums that Repeaters are nice to use in PvE and indeed they are. I’m thinking about getting the Evans now, since the BA already is my to-go high powered/headshot machine, guess the extra large mag will come in handy in different situations.

I kinda like carbine repeater, it only holds 7 rounds but has that fast reload thingy. Overall all the repeaters are pretty similar, it's up to u what you like most. Personally I love evans for its sound and looks and that's all.

I use the lancaster in my main character and always got the most out of it, nice design and accurate. No complains here.

 

Used to own a litchfield in my old character and even though it has the best repeater design in my opinion, i could never get a headshot for the life of me. Mind you this was a while ago and i dont know if they tweaked it in updates, but the litchfield has been the only gun i wanted to store permanently and im glad its not in my inventory anymore.

 

My alt character owns an evans and even though i dont like the design, it has a nice ammo cap and a extremely satisfactory sound effect when shot. I stopped caring about PvP, so i cant say how reliable it is in a real combat situation but holy sh*t, shooting that gun is almost therapeutic.

The Litchfield feels great since the last update. Before, aiming would sometime be completely off for some reason. I'd suggest give it a try, plus I think it's the best sounding repeater. 

 

Otherwise, Lancaster is the best compromise.

I actually really like the Carbine as well, I only use it when I get put in the certain Showdowns that feature it; I usually use my Bolt Action Rifle; but the Carbine has always been a great weapon imo. For a starter weapon too! The quick reload is always neat. Kinda wanna break mine out for a bit now, lol.

This thread should've been called "Which Repeater do you use and why". Like I said before, if there was one that dominated all others, everyone would be using it, but there isn't.

 

By sheer votes, the Lancaster is the winner, but valid points have been made with others such as damage, ammo capacity and reload speed. It realty boils down to personal preference. Personally, I'll choose the bolt action over any repeater.
