The NC2S Gauss Compact possesses a select-fire mode that further diversifies the usage of the already adaptable carbine .

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.
