use magnum or body armor.
body armor is the better choice as it often allows you to survive 1 - 3 bullets, while magnum lowers your bullets to kill by 1.
its a flat 25% to your damage. so based on distance, the damage you would normally do is increased by by 25%.
rate of fire doesnt make a difference. all the weapons are balanced by time to kill. high rate of fire weapons deal lower damage per bullet because they fire faster, and high damage weapons have a slower rate of fire to make up for the high damage. Either way its a 25% increase for damage with either weapon.
personally recommendation is body armor, i hold a 2.12 kdr and i run body armor 95% of the time. It allows you survive tubes and gustavs in more situations, and if usually wins the fight in a magnum vs body armor shootout.
