AF-4 Cyclone is a NC fully automatic submachine gun that has the highest damage output in its class. Compared to other submachine guns, it fires slowly, has a small magazine, but is particularly hard hitting. If you are choosing between the AF-4 Cyclone and the Blitz GD-10 (the New Conglomerate's other submachine gun), be sure to note that the lower rate of fire and smaller magazine makes the Cyclone reliant on your ability to land your shots.
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.
A compensator redirects gases upward, reducing vertical recoil. The increased sound pressure will cause the player to show on the minimap from farther away, and increased weapon bulk reduces accuracy when firing from the hip.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
Advanced Laser Sight
An advanced forward grip greatly increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 33%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
Increases the available ammunition per magazine by 10.
Soft Point Ammunition
Soft Point Ammunition increases the weapon's maximum damage range by 5 meters, but reduces its projectile velocity by 5%.
