Genudine Dynamics unveiled the Razor GD-23 in the early 29th century. The Razor quickly became popular due to its high accuracy and controllable recoil, allowing it to outperform other carbines at long distances.
The Razor GD-23 is an accurate New Conglomerate carbine designed to be effective at much longer ranges than its counter-parts. Compared to all the other 167 damage NC carbines, the Razor GD-23 has the slowest fire rate at 550 RPM, making it a poor choice in close quarters combat. This slow rate of fire also makes it much more controllable, as the relatively low recoil is straight up and has relatively little to no side-to-side pull, making the forward grip a less effective attachment. It also features one of, if not the, fastest reload of any primary in the game at 1.66 seconds short and 2 seconds long and the highest muzzle velocity of any NC carbine at 560 m/s.
Overall, the Razor GD-23 is a poor choice at close ranges due to its low rate of fire. However, its high muzzle velocity, very controllable recoil and higher starting damage compared to the TR and VS carbines make the Razor GD-23 an excellent choice for long range combat.
A compensator redirects gases upward, reducing vertical recoil. The increased sound pressure will cause the player to show on the minimap from farther away, and increased weapon bulk reduces accuracy when firing from the hip.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the Razor GD-23. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Razor GD-23. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Razor GD-23.
