Data Sources
Census API source: Gauss Compact S API Data?

The Gauss Compact S is the select fire variant of the AF-19 Mercenary, the New Conglomerate standard issue carbine. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The Gauss Compact Select, as compared to its base variant, is a carbine that sacrifices numerous stats, namely damage-per-second, in exchange for a large variety in attachments and a lower first-shot recoil multiplier. The Gauss Compact S also gains access to a burst fire mode, though it confers no benefits over full-auto.

The Gauss Compact S struggles to find its worth as a weapon. It allows access to underbarrel attachments, in exchange for a sizable penalty in several stats. Thanks to the reduction of 23 RPM, the Gauss Compact S is amongst the carbines with the lowest damage-per-second, and is actually worse in accuracy in near every way than its base model - the — AF-19 Mercenary — rather than gaining accuracy in exchange for the DPS, as with the NS-11C.

Damage Fall-off Edit

Stats in yellow are with Soft Point Ammunition, and stats in purple are with High Velocity Ammunition.

  • 167 at 10 meters (15 meters) (8 meters)
  • 143 at 44 meters (46 meters) (54 meters)
  • 125 at 70 meters (60 meters) (90 meters)
