"A classic that has withered the test of time. Load 'er up on Monday and shoot the whole week through! For those who prefer to kill with vintage style. This rugged old lady is the only mistress you'll ever need..." —In-game description
The Winchester is a lever-action rifle, that is more than capable of killing Zombies under 3 shots, most one-shot kills if a headshot is performed, and rarely, disintegrations. This rifle outputs standard damage of amongst all the rifles in the game, with 85 units of damage per round, with a maximum damage capacity of 810 per shot.
The Winchester shoots out 12 rounds per clip in 5 seconds, with a reload time of 1.1 seconds. It has a draw time of 1.1 seconds as well, and a drop time of .97 seconds. In between shots, the Winchester takes another second to be ready to fire, as it is a lever-action rifle.
It is a handy secondary, even though the damage is standard for a rifle. The ammo capacity and reload times are what make this weapon a safe choice for a backup. For a weapon that deals a fair amount of damage per shot, this weapon's fire rate is relatively high.
