NC2S Gauss Compact possesses a select-fire mode that further diversifies the usage of an already adaptable carbine. Essentially, it is the default AF-19 Mercenary that fires about 4% slower (577 RPM versus 600 RPM), has a three-round-burst fire mode, and can accept a variety of rail attachments. These are the main reasons to use the weapon, and include an underbarrel: grenade launcher, smoke launcher, and shotgun.
HS/NV Scope (1X)
Nanite Systems' HS/NV scope has no magnification, but provides high contrast outlines to nearby objects and illuminates nearby soldiers.
TekLyte Reflex (1x)
TekLyte's standard reflex sight allows for superior close-range target acquisition over traditional iron sights. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
GD RefleXR (2x)
The RefleXR from Genudine Dynamics includes 2x magnification, making it the preferred sight for urban combat scenarios. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
LX Tacti-Eye (3.4x)
Featuring 3.4x magnification and a simple crosshair, OcuLuxx's Tacti-Eye owes its success to its simplicity and ease of use.
Utilizing a holographic red dot and 3.4x magnification, the NC's Laser-Assisted Combat Optics has significant flexibility over other mid-range scopes.
The TrueShot makes use of a simple crosshair and 4x magnification. Its lightweight 'box' housing obscures less than typical scopes of its class.
LX Mark IV (4x)
OcuLuxx's sturdy Mark IV scope features 4x magnification and a triple chevron reticle, allowing the user to compensate for bullet drop.
The New Conglomerate's versatile Bolt Driver Standard uses a mil-dot reticle and 6x magnification.
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.
A flash suppressor makes the shooter less visible to the enemy, but will increase the range at which you'll appear on enemy minimaps.
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.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
A laser sight increases the user's hipfire accuracy by 25%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
A single-shot grenade launcher attachment; increases the equip time of the attached weapon. Pressing Gear Slot 1 hotkey will toggle the attachment.
Underbarrel smoke grenade launcher attachment; increases the equip time of the attached weapon. Pressing Gear Slot 1 hotkey will toggle the attachment.
A single-shot shotgun round attachment; increases the equip time of the attached weapon. Pressing Gear Slot 1 hotkey will toggle the attachment.
Soft Point Ammunition
Soft Point Ammunition increases the weapon's maximum damage range by 5 meters, but reduces its projectile velocity by 5%.
High Velocity Ammunition
High Velocity Ammunition increases the weapon's projectile velocity by 5% and minimum damage range by 20 meters, but reduces the weapon's maximum damage range by 2 meters.
Guass Compact S Usage Edit
Similar to the
Gauss Compact Burst, the Gauss Compact S is a carbine available to the Light Assault and the Engineer classes. The S-variant has a slightly worse cone of fire, fire rate, reload, and shorter minimum damage range compared to the Burst-variant. However, it can make use of several offensive rail attachements, such as the Underbarrel Shotgun , the Grenade Launcher , and the Smoke Grenade Launcher . It also has access to a full-auto firing mode, a 3x instead of a 2x burst, and a shared semi-auto capability.
Overall, though having slightly weaker stats compared to the Gauss Compact Burst, the S version has much more power and adaptability with it's underbarrel attachments, variety of firing modes, and access to both specilaized ammunition types.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the Gauss Compact S. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Gauss Compact S. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Gauss Compact S.
