AF-19 Mercenary is the standard issue carbine of the New Conglomerate. This weapon trades off a high fire rate for more damage per bullet. This weapon serves itself proficiently with its directed medium-range combat purpose. Avoid close quarters with other players unless a laser sight is added, or a better weapon would be more suited. The burst-fire variant of this weapon is the Gauss Compact Burst, and the select-fire variant is the Gauss Compact S.
Advice: mouse controlled burst fire (2 or 3 bullet per burst) combined with mouse compensated recoil will allow it to be used more effectively at medium to long range.
Damage with Range:
167 @ 10 meters

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%.
