Has the potential to completely shut-down a push, giving players an edge against spears and shotguns alike. Opening with a CrossbowCrossbow and closing with the Nailgun makes for a fantastic combo, even if another enemy happens to be around the corner.
Can be completely overshadowed in either of these roles once weapons like the RevolverRevolver become common in your arsenal.

An okay weapon, unless there is a hard time obtaining better early game gear such as the RevolverRevolver or Waterpipe ShotgunWaterpipe Shotgun it is costly to spend ScrapScrap on nail guns, especially considering it sometimes performs worse then Hunting BowHunting Bow and CrossbowCrossbow.
