Data Sources
Census API source: NC1 Gauss Rifle API Data?

The NC1 Gauss Rifle is the standard issue assault rifle of the New Conglomerate. It is available to all New Conglomerate characters by default.

The NC1 Gauss Rifle is the NC equivalent to the TR T1 Cycler and VS Pulsar VS1, which tend to be the middle ground between all the available assault rifles and serve as solid starter weapons.

The scope of attachments available for the NC1 Gauss Rifle is limited, with access to no alternate ammo types, no compensator, and only the basic Laser Sight and Forward Grip. However, the NC1 Gauss Rifle starts with the red dot variant of the TekLyte Reflex unlocked, as well as the Forward Grip, serving as a suitable all-round starter assault rifle for a fresh Combat Medic.

General Tips and StrategiesEdit

  • ADS with this weapon. Its low rate of fire makes it hard to accurately hipfire.
  • Be sure to make every shot count. This weapon rewards users who are accurate and heavily punishes those who aren't.
  • It is a bit unwieldy in close quarters due to its slower ROF, but it hits hard and has very low recoil. Making consecutive headshots is not very difficult at longer ranges.
  • Keep your distance if you can, but this weapon can hold its ground well in cqc.
  • Standing still will give you a distinct accuracy advantage against strafing users at long range, but keep in mind that this strategy keeps you very vulnerable to snipers.
  • Its weapon equivalents are the T1 Cycler for the Terran Republic and the Pulsar VS1 for the Vanu Sovereignty.
