Boasting a longer barrel than its compact Light Carbine cousin, the mobile LC3 Jaguar was designed to provide accurate hip fire at longer distances than the Lynx.
ADS Move Speed Multiplier:
143 before 10m
112 after 60m
Bloom per Shot:

First Shot Recoil Multiplier:
LC3 Jaguar is the big brother of the LC2 Lynx, with a slower fire rate, but better hip fire accuracy. The LC3 Jaguar is a CQC (close quarters combat) carbine that has a relatively high fire rate and great hip fire accuracy, but is not suited for longer engagements as the ADS accuracy is erratic, and the bullet velocity is low.
Damage with Range:
143 @ 10 meters
125 @ 39 meters
112 @ 60 meters
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/LC3 Jaguar Comparison Edit
LC2 Lynx and LC3 Jaguar perform well in CQC, but have some notable differences. The LC2 Lynx has a much higher fire rate (909 RPM,159 RPM higher than the LC3 Jaguar's 750 RPM) and slightly higher bullet velocity (10 m/s more). Also, do note that the LC2 Lynx has a worse damage model (125 dropping to 100 in 50m, compared to 143 dropping to 112 at 60m. The LC2 Lynx also has a shorter long reload (reloading with no bullets in the magazine). However, the LC3 Jaguar is less expensive (650 certs as opposed to the Lynx's 1000 certs). The LC3 Jaguar also features a faster short reload speed (reloading with at least one bullet in the magazine), better hipfire accuracy, better minimum damage, as well as semi automatic fire.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the LC3 Jaguar. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the LC3 Jaguar. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the LC3 Jaguar.

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.
