The ES C90 is overall the most popular weapon in the zombie escape gameplay, reaching at least similar statistics to the KM Sub-Machine Gun:

  • The ES C90 is along with the M249 capable of holding off multimple zombies at the same time while having a very fast rate of fire, dealing moderate damage and moderate knockback.
  • Remember that crouching gives this submachine gun even more accuracy, so if not moving, intend to do so.
  • While its accuracy does not allow efficient knockback over longer distances, it can serve as a very good backup for those who are still trying to hold off the zombie hord in order to survive while dealing damage.
  • Players might also choose this weapon for its increased speed, but its rather negligible than noticable.
  • This weapons' best field is in close quarters, thus being an excellent choice regarding the zombie escape gameplay.
  • All these combinations together with a Night Hawk .50c or the .40 Dual Elites can make you a very competing opponent for the zombies.
