Very few weapons are able to touch the Lynx’s incredible rate of fire. Featuring a cyclic rate of 910 RPM, the LC2 Lynx tears through infantry at close to medium ranges.

LC2 Lynx API Data
LC2 Lynx is a Terran Republic carbine, effective at close quarters due to its overclocked fire-rate that allows it to shred through infantry at close ranges, supported by its average reloads. It isn't as effective at longer ranges, thanks to its quick damage drop off comparable to that of an SMG and relatively low bullet velocity. Its ADS accuracy is high compared to other carbines, but its COF blooms quickly due to its high ROF. Its recoil pattern, however, is quite predictable and controllable.

HS/NV Scope (1x)
Nanite Systems' HS/NV scope has no magnification, but provides high contrast outlines to nearby objects and illuminates nearby soldiers.
RTA Reflex Sight (1x)
The TR's Rapid Target Acquisition sight provides no magnification, but uses a clear red dot sight for close-combat situations. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
MH2 Reflex Sight (2x)
The Terran MH2 features 2x magnification inside of a holographic red dot sight, giving it the advantage in urban combat situations. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
Equipped with a combination chevron/crosshair reticle and 3.4x magnification capabilities, the TR's Designated Marksman Optics functions well at many ranges.
Using a red dot reticle with 3.4x optical magnification, the TR's Holographic Dot Sight performs well in close and mid-range combat scenarios.
Sharpshooters have long preferred the Terran Marksman Scope, praising its simple 4x magnified crosshair for its versatility and efficiency.
The Terran Republic's Advanced Combat Scope utilizes a triple chevron reticle and 4x magnification, making it a good choice for all-around use.
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.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
Advanced Laser Sight
An advanced forward grip greatly increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 33%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
Soft Point Ammunition
Soft Point Ammunition increases the weapon's maximum damage range by 5 meters, but reduces its projectile velocity by 5%.
LC2 Lynx or LC3 Jaguar Edit
Both the LC2 Lynx and
LC3 Jaguar are great CQC options, but have their differences. The LC2 Lynx has a better fire rate (159 RPM more) and slightly higher bullet velocity (10 m/s more). It also has the firing mode of semi-automatic, while the LC3 Jaguar only has automatic. It also had a shorter long reload (reloading with no bullets in the magazine). However, the LC3 Jaguar costs much less (350 less certs or 200 less Station Cash). The LC3 Jaguar also has a faster short reload speed (reloading with at least one bullet in the magazine), better hipfire accuracy, and better minimum damage.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the LC2 Lynx. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the LC2 Lynx. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the LC2 Lynx.

December 1, 2016 Update
Hipfire minimum cone of fire while airborne now uses the same minimum hipfire cone of fire as a player who is walking.
For the Serpent VE92, VX6-7, LC2 Lynx, LC3 Jaguar, GD-7F, and AF-4A Bandit, these values are slightly larger.
ADS CoF bloom from 0.05 to 0.045
Hipfire CoF bloom from 0.1 to 0.09
