Although the use of OVE9000 as a weapon is risky and hardly advised, the aced version of the skill may be a beneficial asset to a player's build. The basic version can be used to allow sawing of more objects, but there is no map that will use up all of the ammo if backed-up by an ammo bag. The aced version allows the saw to take up the secondary slot instead, thus retaining most of the players' firepower.
Note that there are other skills, such as Berserker, which can provide similar, if not superior, buffs to the OVE9000 without the heavy skill point investment required to ace this skill.
- While the skill's name suggests the usage of saw discs made from carbon fiber, this is not technically plausible in reality as carbon fiber edges wear very quickly when grinded against a hard surface. It could, however, be a technical misnomer of "Carbide" saw blades, which are composed of carbon-heavy metal compounds.
- It is possible to equip the primary and secondary saw at the same time, although the only benefit of such setup is the slightly larger starting saw ammo pool.
