AF-19 Mercenary API Data
AF-19 Mercenary is the standard issue carbine of the New Conglomerate. It is available to all New Conglomerate characters by default.
The AF-19 Mercenary is the NC equivalent to the TR
TRAC-5 and the VS Solstice VE3, which tend to be the middle ground between all the available carbines and serve as solid starter weapons.
The scope of attachments available for the AF-19 Mercenary is limited, with access to no alternate ammo types, no
compensator, and only the basic Laser Sight and Forward Grip. However, the AF-19 Mercenary starts with the red dot variant of the TekLyte Reflex unlocked, as well as the Laser Sight, serving as a suitable all-round starter carbine for a fresh Light Assault or Engineer.

HS/NV Scope (1x)
Nanite Systems' HS/NV scope has no magnification, but provides high contrast outlines to nearby objects and illuminates nearby soldiers.
TekLyte Reflex (1x)
TekLyte's standard reflex sight allows for superior close-range target acquisition over traditional iron sights. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
GD RefleXR (2x)
The RefleXR from Genudine Dynamics includes 2x magnification, making it the preferred sight for urban combat scenarios. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
LX Tacti-Eye (3.4x)
Featuring 3.4x magnification and a simple crosshair, OcuLuxx's Tacti-Eye owes its success to its simplicity and ease of use.
Utilizing a holographic red dot and 3.4x magnification, the NC's Laser-Assisted Combat Optics has significant flexibility over other mid-range scopes.
The TrueShot makes use of a simple crosshair and 4x magnification. Its lightweight 'box' housing obscures less than typical scopes of its class.
LX Mark IV (4x)
OcuLuxx's sturdy Mark IV scope features 4x magnification and a triple chevron reticle, allowing the user to compensate for bullet drop.
The suppressor reduces the noise and muzzle flash generated by the firearm, and prevents the player from showing on the minimap when firing. Bullet velocity and effectiveness at range are reduced.
A flash suppressor makes the shooter less visible to the enemy, but will increase the range at which you'll appear on enemy minimaps.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
A laser sight increases the user's hipfire accuracy by 25%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
