The EM6 is a NC LMG that shoots moderately fast with high damaging bullets, along with a large magazine.  Together with its multiple firing modes, the EM6 is an extremely versatile weapon.

The EM6 has a good fire rate for a high-damage weapon at 600RPM. It is also highly accurate and users of the NS-15M2 will find this weapon easy to use. It can fire a large burst and stay accurate but when aiming for distant targets the user should keep bursts to 3-4 shots. The weapon is highly effective at medium range but loses at close range due to less damage than the Gauss SAW and poor hipfire. Overall, it is an adaptable weapon best used when the battle becomes too far-flung for the Gauss SAW to be effective.

Damage with Range:

167 @ 10 meters

143 @ 47 meters

125 @ 75 meters

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.
