Ballistic Overkill Wikia

The Needler is a Machine Pistol exclusively for Shadow.


  • Because of it's high damage per second, tight spread, and high mobility this gun is great for run and gun.
  • Using the perk(s) Shadow Walker and/or Fast as Lightning you improve your damage per second allowing you to win gunfights easier.
  • The Swiftness perk allows you to move much faster allowing you to travel between health packs easier, or cross the map faster.
