The MG-HBR1 Dragoon is a battle rifle released alongside the MGR-M1 Bishop and VE-LR Obelisk as part of a new series of empire specific weapons. Each seeks to add fresh flavour to the neglected battle rifle selection, providing a highly accurate long-range platform with access to unique attachments and mechanics. For the Dragoon, this is the fully-automatic fire mode and Explosive Ammunition, alongside Heavy Magazine and Single-Fire Barrel.
The Dragoon is unique amongst battle rifles, providing a full-auto fire mode in a typically single-fire line-up of weaponry. This allows easier use at closer ranges, allowing the user to always reach the maximum potential rate-of-fire which would require skilled trigger timing otherwise. The Dragoon can also use the single-fire barrel attachment to lose this benefit, however making it even more accurate than the other new battle rifles.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the MG-HBR1 Dragoon. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Dragoon. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Dragoon.
