The OHM is a Heavy Weapon in Advanced Warfare. It fires rounds of Directed Energy and comes with an adjustable choke to change between short and long range engagements. It is best described as an LMG/Shotgun hybrid. The OHM is a very powerful weapon and the LMG Mode kills in 3 shots from anywhere on the map at any range. Different from its other laser gun family, the OHM will fire through walls.
The shotgun mode is very powerful in close range combat with no hip spread if firing from the hip. It is also the fastest firing shotgun in the game, firing at 450RPM.
Recommended attachments for the OHM are Quickdraw, Extended Mags and Advanced Rifling.

The best OHM variants are the Restless(Elite), Unending(Elite) and the Lunacy(Enlisted). The Restless adds 3 to Accuracy and takes 1 from Damage. The ammo capacity on this variant is reduced so extended Mags is recommended. The Unending variant takes 1 from Accuracy, Fire Rate and Range. However adds 3 points to the ammo capacity which is a great thing for this weapon due to its low clip size for a Heavy Weapon. The Lunacy adds 1 to Fire Rate and takes 1 from Mobility.
