The Artemis VX26 is a fully-automatic faction-specific scout rifle. It shares it stats with the automatic scout rifles of the other factions.
The Artemis, like its counterparts, has a 24 magazine, slightly above average recoil, high rate of fire, low velocity, and a wide hip cone of fire.
However, the Artemis has no bullet drop.
The Artemis is often used as an early game equivalent to an SMG, as it is a fairly cheap automatic rifle usable to the infiltrator. However, the Artemis is not like SMGs in the way that it has ranged capabilities, as the damage drop-off is very mild, and can become a very versatile medium range weapon if one can manage the recoil properly. Unlike its Semi-Auto siblings, the Artemis can also stand toe-to-toe with other weaponry such as carbines and assault rifles. These two traits make it an excellent hit-and-run weapon.
To set up the Artemis for medium to close range combat, one will want:
A suppressor- while this does lower bullet velocity, the ability to remain stealthy while killing is invaluable to an infiltrator.
Forward Grip- helps to manage the recoil.
2x reflex sight, or a 3.4x scope.
While this set up is not very viable for hip-fire, a 2x optic will allow one to ADS in close range engagements allowing for both more accurate shots as well as headshots.
