SpecOps Auto-Scout is the Terran Republic's automatic scout rifle. It shares its stats with the automatic scout rifles of the other factions.
It like its counterparts, it has a 24 magazine, slightly above average recoil, high rate of fire, low velocity, and a wide hip cone of fire.
HS/NV Scope (1x)
Nanite Systems' HS/NV scope has no magnification, but provides high contrast outlines to nearby objects and illuminates nearby soldiers.
RTA Reflex Sight (1x)
The TR's Rapid Target Acquisition sight provides no magnification, but uses a clear red dot sight for close-combat situations. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
MH2 Reflex Sight (2x)
The Terran MH2 features 2x magnification inside of a holographic red dot sight, giving it the advantage in urban combat situations. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
Equipped with a combination chevron/crosshair reticle and 3.4x magnification capabilities, the TR's Designated Marksman Optics functions well at many ranges.
Using a red dot reticle with 3.4x optical magnification, the TR's Holographic Dot Sight performs well in close and mid-range combat scenarios.
Sharpshooters have long preferred the Terran Marksman Scope, praising its simple 4x magnified crosshair for its versatility and efficiency.
The Terran Republic's Advanced Combat Scope utilizes a triple chevron reticle and 4x magnification, making it a good choice for all-around use.
The 6x magnified S3 comes standard on many Terran sniper rifles. Its moderate zoom level and mil-dot sighting makes it perfect for mid-to-long range combat.
The suppressor reduces the noise and muzzle flash generated by the firearm, and prevents the player from showing on the minimap when firing. Bullet velocity and effectiveness at range are reduced.
A flash suppressor makes the shooter less visible to the enemy, but will increase the range at which you'll appear on enemy minimaps.
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.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
A laser sight increases the user's hipfire accuracy by 25%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
