The Pulsar LSW is an Orion class LMG used by the Vanu Sovereignty and is viable in a wide number of situations. In comparison to the Orion, it sacrifices a small amount of RPM (52) and reload speed for a 50% greater magazine size (25 extra rounds), as well as an extra 25 rounds spare. This allows for superior mid to long-range power, at the cost of being slightly less dangerous in close quarters. But it is still a worthwhile gun to own if you are in a mid range battle. Use the Pulsar's 75 ammo capacity to mow enemy infantry down at range effortlessly. 

Damage with Range:

143 @ 10 meters

125 @ 41 meters

112 @ 65 meters
