The Maskeleon Rifle is a weapon that was introduced in the Carnival 2017 (Update). It boasts Good Damage, Range, Accuracy and Agility. It is a really versatile yet unique weapon as it can be used in different ways.

Strategy

This weapon can be deadly depending on how you use it:

  • Without any of the masks, this weapon is an assault weapon. Use Run And Gun due to its stats. Shoot anything that moves, preferably at mid-close range. Remember to always reload when no one is around.
  • With the Supply Carnival Mask, this gun becomes a rifle, a slow firing but powerful weapon. The best strategy for this is Camping. Find a high spot and start shooting. A scope is provided for you but it is recommended for long ranged kills.
  • With the Aggressive Carnival Mask, this weapon is a sub-machine gun. Use Run And Gun in this mode. Run around and shoot at anything that moves, best at mid-close range. This weapon has auto-aim so there is no need to worry about aiming.
  • With the Wind Carnival Mask, it makes this a sniper. Camping is the most recommended strategy in this mode. Find a high spot on the map and start shooting. The sniper has cross-hairs, albeit very large ones, so this makes sniping slightly easier. Or, you can use the scope and kill those in your way. Run And Gun is possible with this weapon, though one must know what to do.

Overall, a very interesting weapon that can change your gameplay, depending on your choice of clothing.

Trivia

  • It shares the same stats as the RA-KT Assault Rifle, Elite Assault Rifle, Veteran Machine Gun and the Shockwave Launcher.
  • It's the second weapon that "belongs" to multiple types/categories of weapons, after the Fire Clacker.
  • Its name is a portamanteau of "mask" and "Chameleon". This most likely refers to its ability to change weapon category depending upon the mask worn.
  • It's the only weapon that belongs to four different categories, besides it’s successor, the Heavy Maskaleon
  • In the weapon's preview, it looks like the weapon only has 2 compartments for storing bullets, but in-game, it actually has 3.
    • The three compartments are probably for storing different types for ammo. Same goes for two barrels; longer one for shooting in Sniper Mode and Rifle Mode, and shorter one for Assault Mode and SMG Mode.
    • It also appears to be based on existing NATO drum magazines.
  • In all technicality, this weapon would holds the second most ammo for a "sniper rifle", after the Fire Clacker.
  • It can possibly be considered to be the most "versatile" weapon out there due to its various usages.
  • While in Assault Mode, it sounds and "behaves" just like the DV Carbine with a slower RoF, and has a similar range to the Stig Rifle; while in Sub-machinegun Mode, it shoots exactly the same as the Veteran Machine Gun and having the same range as the SMG Howling; while in Rifle Mode, its features are quite similar to the Double Barrel Machinegun and its damage is similar to the Silver Wolf; and the Sniper Mode is just like a mix of the Black-Naga and the DMR-003.
  • Despite it is used in "different" weapon modes, this weapon is still categorized as an Assault Weapon.
    • A great example is that while in Sniper mode only the Cadet Vest (an armor that reduces the Damage of Assault Weapon) effectively reduces its Damage, while the Biker Bandana and U.F. Mask (which reduces the damage of Sniper Rifles) do not.
