Resistance: Fall of Man
The Bullseye is used by the generic foot soldiers of the Chimeran army and is a very effective weapon. Quick to fire, while providing reasonable damage, the Bullseye is very good at close quarters. This weapon does have the extremely useful trait of being able to home in on a target though. Using the secondary fire, enemies can be "tagged". The tag acts as a tracking beacon for the primary fire bullets and unless something physical is in the way, the bullets will not miss.
Unlike in the multiplayer mode which allows an unlimited amount of tags to be held, offline only six bulleye tags can be held at any given moment. They can however be picked up off of dead Hybrids, but make sure you use them wisely.
Obtained: The Bullseye is acquired during the first playthrough in York - "The Gauntlet". After the second checkpoint has been obtained, it is in an alleyway after jumping down from higher ground. It is an enforced pick-up i.e. you can't not pick it up.
Bullseye Trap: The Bullseye trap is a special function that the gun can perform. To perform a Bullseye trap, fire a tag while aiming at either the floor or a wall, but make sure the button remains held down. This forces the trap to not disappear on impact, and it keeps its beacon status. Once the tag has been set in place, firing at the tag will cause bullets to circle, creating a trap. Once the desired amount of bullets has been placed in the trap, the secondary fire must be used again to fire them at the target. They will instantly be hit by a maximum of 50 bullets at once.
The Bullseye is the starting weapon for the Chimeran forces. It has the largest clip size and has the largest ammo pool, which is good due to its huge rate of fire. It is the weakest weapon, but this isn't necessarily a problem due to how quickly bullets can be rained down on an opponent, indeed it can fire approx 15 bullets a second, which is enough to kill someone should they all be headshots.
The secondary fire is what makes this weapon exceedingly dangerous. The "tag" acts as a homing device and once applied, all bullets fired will automatically hit the target unless obstacles are in the way. Tags can however wear off if the target gets too far away from the gun, so make sure the red beam out of the front of the weapon is lit as this shows when a tag is applied.
Note: You can tag your own team-mates, which can be a huge hinderance in a large firefight, as none of your bullets will hit the opposition.
Tip: Only attack someone without tagging as a last resort. The Bullseye can fire incredibly fast, but its accuracy is questionable. Better safe than sorry, right?
More Of The Same
The Bullseye remains the weapon of choice for the stereotypical grunts in the Chimeran army; the Hybrids. However, its appearance has changed slightly this time around as it has been slightly remodelled.
While the primary fire remains just as inaccurate as before, this can still be rectified using the weapon's secondary fire; the "Homing Tag". This has been slightly changed this time around though, as it's much harder to tag an opponent. Once an opponent is tagged, they then flash yellow, so it's possible to even see them through walls.
One slight addition is the ability to explode Bullseye Traps. Like before, the weapon's bullets can be stored at a central spot. However, the option to explode the trap has now been added, which acts similiarly to a Hedgehog Grenade.
Nowhere Near As Effective
Cooperative: The Bullseye can be used by both the Solider and Spec Ops classes online, but each class has better alternatives to use instead. However, the Bullseye does have its uses due to its ability to fire around corners, which can definitely dig you out of some tricky spots.
Competitive: While the Bullseye was an extremely strong weapon in Resistance Fall of Man, it is no longer the case. It's much harder to tag someone and kill them without actually dying yourself and its innaccuracy doesn't make it an ideal choice when trying to rack up the kills.
