Darkman's gun review - HENRY 45-70
The Henry 45-70 is a... Battle Rifle?!?
I would've thrown it in Sniper Rifles because it really behaves like one.
This gun is unlocked at Rank 96!
The Henry 45-70 is the only lever action rifle in the game, and it works like a sniper, You shoot and you rechamber!
The rechambering process is faster than all the bolt action snipers in the game, even faster than the Steyr Scout, it also fires slightly faster than the WA2000 which is a semi automatic!
It can one shot headshot at any range like a sniper!
It has a x1.55 torso multiplier, enough to 1-hit torso kill until 80 studs! Or 2-hit torso shot at long range!
Limb shots at long range are weaker though, only dealing 45 damage, meaning if you hit only limbs, you will need 3 shots to kill!
Another drawback to this weapon is the muzzle velocity, it fires at a slow 1800 studs per second, this will take a while to get used to and will make very long ranged shots really hard, You can use a Ballistics Tracker to train those range shots but the community won't like you for it.
This gun reloads bullet per bullet like some shotguns, but also requires you to take out and put in the tube, which makes single bullet reloads quite a long reload, especially when you entirely run out of ammo, I recommend reloading when you only have 1 bullet left!
Changes the name to Henry 30-30!
Changes your ammo type to .30-30!
(+) Increases magazine capacity to 6 and ammo reserve to 70!
(+) Increased minimum range!
(+) Penetration depth and muzzle velocity slightly increased!
(+) RPM increased by 25!
(+) Torso and Headshot multipliers slightly increased!
(+) Recoil decreased.
(-) Damage is slightly reduced from 65 -> 45 to 60 -> 40!
(-) Huge decrease in maximum range, This will limit your one shot torso kills.
(-) 1 extra bullet in your magazine results in an empty reload being slightly longer.
This ammo type is perfect for sniping with the Henry, It is not advised to use this at close range anymore past 24 studs.
Try to not run out of ammo completely or you will suffer from a 10 seconds long reload!
Changes the name to Henry 410!
Changes your ammo to .410 Bore!
(+) 4 Pellets per shot.
(+) Increases maximum damage to 50!
(+) Increased minimum range!
(-) Decreases minimum damage to 19, this makes one tap kills impossible at long range!
(-) Huge decrease in maximum range!
(-) Decreased torso and headshot multipliers by alot!
(-) 2.25 Choke!
(-) Halved penetration depth!
(-) Decreased muzzle velocity!
This turns your Henry into a shotgun!
Eliminate all efforts in killing people at long range, that won't work.
Focus yourself on close range, it is super deadly, Only 2 pellets and it kills!
While it is a normal ammo type on PDW's and SMG's, This gun for some reason has it too despite not using pistol rounds!
It also has unique stats.
(+) Great increase in muzzle velocity!
(+) Good increase in suppression and penetration depth!
(+) Slight increase in range!
(-) Increased recoil!
(-) Decreased torso multiplier to x1.4, You can no longer one hit kill enemies in the torso!
Another useful ammo for sniping, Use this if you don't to decrease your max range or damage itself.
The Henry 45-70 has some unique attachments, being the Malcolm 6X Scope, Remove Stock, 30-30 Conv, 410 Conv and Plus P.
The Malcolm 3X Scope is free on this weapon!
The Henry 45-70 cannot equip the Oil Filter because it would get in the way of reloading.
If you want a loadout, I recommend you this:
- TA01 ACOG
- Muzzle Brake
- Tri Laser
- Remove Stock
If you use 410 Conv., Then use the DDHB Reflex optic instead of the TA01 ACOG.
Use Tracerless to keep yourself more hidden with the Henry, the reductions in hipfire does not matter with the Henry, the default ammo will make sure you still have a powerful one tap torso and still able to one hit headshot!
- When this gun was added to the test place, It had access to Flechette, Birdshot and Slugs despite not being a shotgun.
- Slugs made this gun one hit kill at all ranges.
- This gun used to not one hit headshot at long range, being a bad weapon.
My opinion on this gun
I mean, It's a lever action rifle, how cool is that?!?
It's fun and relaxing to use, it's not the best sniper though when it comes to long range.
But who cares? It's fun!
I rate this 8.5/10!

Glad you liked the Henry, though it was supposed to get 6/72 ammo for the 30-30 conversion. Dunno what happened to that.

KommandoKazumi Maybe it got reduced due to the conversion making it into a more powerful Scout?
That’s my guess anyhow.
CamaroKidBB There was nothing mentioned about it, though the ammo count change was made before it was buffed, the buff coming before it was implemented on test server. Dunno if the ammo count was reverted due to the buff or not.
Also, why remove the stock and use a muzzle brake? That's rather counterintuitive... And increases recoil overall.
KommandoKazumi Decreases some recoil and Remove Stock makes it so you walk and aim faster.
You do not feel a recoil increase on the Henry since it's a lever action rifle anyway.
