AF-6 Shadow — New Conglomerate Semi-Automatic Scout Rifle.
Useful for supporting a capture attempt on a Bio Lab, Tech Plant or Watchtower from a supporting building. Would recommend a 3x quick acquisition scope for targeting retreating enemies,engineers repairing turrets and maxes, as well as medics healing heavies. If you choose to go this route with your Infiltrator, you WILL be shooting at moving targets, so be prepared.
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 New Conglomerate's versatile Bolt Driver Standard uses a mil-dot reticle and 6x magnification.
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.
A laser sight increases the user's hipfire accuracy by 25%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
