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.
The Darkstar uses a heat-based ammo pool, in contrast to the standard magazine-based ammo system most infantry weaponry uses. Heat provides a meter that fills upon firing, and dissipates when not firing.
The Darkstar has a heat capacity of 1000, generates 32 heat per shot, and has a recovery delay of 0.5 seconds. It dissipates 570 heat per second, and incurs an overheat penalty of 1.75 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.
