Analysis

IWS 2000RF is a highly specified FP RF, sacrificing her RoF for a huge increase in FP. She's especially good when dealing with heavily armored units or bosses mainly, due to her high damage which can easily reach 1000+ damage per shot.

This kind of damage causes players to tunnel vision her capabilities, thinking that her damage is sufficient for most if not all content. This is not the case. IWS 2000RF' incredible damage per shot is a specialized niche that is used to deal with high health and incredibly armoured enemies; the FP increase greatly mitigates any armour reduction and the damage allows her to finish fights that have a dangerous enemy that must be wiped out as fast as possible. She is one of the several units that are capable of feats like this, with an infamous alternative of Carcano M91/38RF, but with the difference that IWS 2000RF can consistently output this damage over a period of time rather focusing everything into one shot.

Due to her debilitating debuff in the stat that RFs would ideally want more of (her RoF), her use in echelons that deal with general enemies or 'slightly more than a little' number of enemies is limited. Once she pops her skill she becomes one of the slowest firing units in the game. One can attempt to reduce this disadvantage by stuffing the echelon with RoF buffing handguns (the infamous Exodia), however this echelon type is Not Recommended as it is for a very specific purpose and will not deal with a lot of other fights very well. One can attempt to pair her with another RF that can take advantage of the RoF buffs as well (such as Lee EnfieldRF/M14RF), but the argument comes again to debate whether her overwhelming Firepower is required for the fight in question. In almost all circumstances, it is not and so the patched up echelon performs worse than when using the more common and less damage inflicting RFs together.

These comps require extremely heavy investment from the player for, not just IWS 2000RF, but also the HGs and the additional RF if added. The equipment to make such feats achievable flawlessly also require significant investment. Therefore these comps are Not Recommended to be made immediately as a first RFHG comp for new commanders. To recap, she is Specialist and one should identify exactly when the situation calls for the use of this Austrian Princess and her unparalleled Firepower.
