NS Decimator
The unguided NS Decimator missile launcher outclasses all others on Auraxis in raw damage against armor and infantry alike, but requires the user to lead their targets farther due to its slower projectile speed.

The Decimator is the second most powerful weapon available to infantry, after C-4 . Decimators fire slow rockets, reloads slowly, and is slow to pull out. However, for close range ambushes against tanks, Sunderers, and MAX suits, this weapon is the best option. The damage, while lower than the default launchers, is much higher against vehicles, this is because of it having its own resistance value. In general usage The Decimator will require one less rocket than the default launchers to kill a vehicle. Another downside is the almost negligible Splash damage.

This weapon is not empire specific, usable by Heavy Assaults of all factions. Purchasing with DC will unlock it for all characters on your account.
