- “Get within a short distance of your target and unleash hell.”
Being a primary weapon, it has infinite ammo.
The weapon acts as a type of vehicle shotgun. It's much more powerful than Heavy Machine Guns and can dispatch enemies with only a small amount of effort. Like with Heavy Machine Guns, the player may use the Nailspreader to trap an enemy vehicle in a chase so it constantly takes fire until it explodes or finds a way to escape the conflict.
The player should be wary of the Monarch class vehicles, namely Outlaw, Executioner, and Boss. This weapon is the strongest of the non-pulse weapons, but it cannot defeat a Monarch easily and it will take a good amount of fire to destroy one.
