Barrel Attachments
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.

Flash Suppressor A flash suppressor makes the shooter less visible to the enemy without affecting muzzle velocity or damage. A very small reduction in full-auto accuracy makes burst control necessary for extremely long ranges.

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.

Guass Compact S UsageEdit

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.

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.
