The Quatz offers a different and unique way of firing where it automatically switches to burst when zoomed in.
This makes it comfortable for most people who love rapid fire from the hip and careful shots when aimed.
Different mods may aid such firing modes as there are many ways to mod an automatic or burst weapon but to mod two in one could work out extremely well.
Although the zoomed in firing mode is considered to be a burst fire type of firing mode, it actually fires 4 shots at the same time.
Regardless of the different firing rates, the Quatz remains very accurate during many situations and can be used effectively at different ranges.
With its base electricity damage, it is easy to combine other elemental mods to change and utilize it.
Below are a few sample builds:
Elemental Critical Build
Since the Quatz has an innate electricity damage type it is easy to either add another combination with two other elemental damage mods or combine a similar mod and an additional elemental damage mod to use it.
There is a good chance to deal critical damage due to the fire rate as well as the large amount of ammo it has which guarantees some critical hits when unloading your ammo onto enemies.
This build will work well with both firing modes and can easily adjust to the switch that happens when zooming in or firing from the hip.
Using a single combination or adding it with the electricity base damage can provide a good damage output for the Quatz, especially if planned out to target specific enemies, making use of their weaknesses.

With more focus on dealing damage through status effects along with the base elemental damage provided by added elemental damage and status mods, the Quatz is capable of inflicting status effects easily on enemies.
Using all four elemental damage and status mods increase the status chance of the Quatz to a very high percent which guarantees status effects to occur.
The elemental damage alone can kill enemies and those who do not die within the first few hits are subject to status effects, making them weak or causing them to take damage over time.
This provides a lot of sources for damage and can help clear out enemies that have higher resistances and that have higher levels.

Combining both the Elemental Critical Build and the Status Build, the Hybrid Build has a great chance at dealing critical damage as well as inflicting enemies with status effects.
With the addition of the critical mods, critical damage and chance is increased and will work well with the fire rate of the weapon allowing several bullets to have a chance to deal critical hits.
Just like with the critical mods, the status mods will give a good chance for status effects to occur and enemies who survive the initial hits will have a chance to get inflicting with status effects that weaken them or deal damage over time.
Utilizing this build has a good chance to make enemies weak and use the critical damage to finish them off.

These are not the only builds available for the Quatz, but they work well in various situations due to the firing mode switching and stats.
There are tons of ways to mod this weapon and it all can vary depending on the user and their choice of mods.
The Quatz may appear to be a small sidearm but it definitely packs a punch when modded well.
Its base electricity damage as well as its physical damage types can easily scale up with different mods and the addition of critical, status or both kinds of mods can greatly improve the damage output.
Making use of the firing modes can be very essential for different situations as the automatic firing mode and burst fire mode are useful in different battles.
The automatic firing mode has a fast rate of fire and the time between shots with the burst fire mode do not take long.
This weapon may seem like a simple secondary firearm but it has the capabilities of a primary firearm and can devastate enemies and deplete enemy health in seconds.
