The Unholy Hellbringer is a truly futuristic laser gun added to GTA Online as part of Arena War, but is it worth the money needed to buy it?
Should You Buy the Unholy Hellbringer?
So here's the lowdown - the Hellbringer is basically a reskin of the Combat MG, with three important distinctions: the Hellbringer has slightly lower accuracy, does not need to be reloaded, and cannot be modified or upgraded after purchase. Still, one could argue that this second bonus isn't all that great, as the standard Combat MG already has a magazine capacity of 200. And if you haven't killed whatever you're fighting by the 200th bullet, you're probably not going to win anyway.
Advantages and Disadvantages of the Unholy Hellbringer
Putting the stats aside for one moment, there is one key difference between the two guns, reskins or not - their rank and cash requirement. The Hellbringer can be bought at any point in the game from Ammu-Nation, unlocked from Rank 1 and purchasable by anybody. The Combat MG doesn't open up until Rank 80.
You'd assume this means it's just smarter to get the Hellbringer early, but no. Once you do unlock it, the Combat MG is a fairly reasonable $14,800, not exactly cheap, but nothing too strenuous, particularly for those who are already Rank 80. The Hellbringer is an eye-watering $449,000, which even the wealthiest crime lord would probably balk at.
