The Darkstar is the VS equivalent to the NC Gauss Prime and the TR T1A Unity, though has a different attachment layout.
The Darkstar's stats are based off of the Pulsar VS1, as the description suggests, even though it is using an attachment only available on the Equinox VE2, the Select Fire variant of the Pulsar VS1. The numbers listed on the stat card are representative of the weapon including the effects of the attachments, as reflected in the recoil and hip-fire accuracy stats when compared to the Pulsar VS1.
Like most directive weapons given to Vanu Sovereignty players, the Darkstar uses heat instead of ammunition.
The Darkstar will overheat after having fired 32 rounds without cooling down, making that the "magazine" size. If the weapon is allowed to cool without overheating, there is a 0.4 second delay until it starts cooling. If the weapon overheats, that delay is increased to 1.6 seconds.
The "reload" speed is 0.05 seconds per round fired, capping at 1.6 seconds when fully overheated. This means that, at 29 rounds, the "short reload" is 1.95 seconds, whereas at 30 rounds the "long reload" is 3.2 seconds.
Created to better suit carbines and assault rifles for support roles, the OG-4's simple crosshair allows the user to make accurate shots at a distance. It uses 4x magnification perfect for mid-range fights.
