Consecutive shot

Going to level up my Paduk a little and had a few questions about about his consecutive shot skill.

  1. Does the multiplier time out after awhile? Let’s say I hit a couple head shots and then don’t shoot again for quite awhile, does the multiplier still stay?

  2. Does it stay between weapon swaps?

  3. Anyone play around with how this works with a longshot?

This! Anyone know? I feel like I would have better luck hitting shots with a longshot than a markza.
