The 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.

Suppressor 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.

Compensator 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.
