The Serpent VE92 is a faction-specific carbine. It appears as a standard-issue VS carbine with a design that resembles the Pulsar C . As the manufacturer of this weapon is directly affiliated with the Vanu Sovereignty, this weapon is only available for use by VS Light Assault and Engineer troops.
Note that while the In-game icon looks like the default Solstice VE3, the Serpent VE92 is actually the same blue as the Phantom sniper rifle.
The main feature of this weapon is its blazing fast rate-of-fire at 845rpm. This allows the weapon to quickly drop enemies at close range and also provide a good fighting chance at medium range. The weapon's rate of fire ties it with the New Conglomerate's GD-7F for the second fastest firing carbine in the game; both are second only to the Terran Republic's LC2 Lynx, the fastest at 909 RPM. It's hip-fire is decent enough to be used at close-quarters.
The main downside to this weapon is its considerably lengthy reload as well as slow muzzle velocity at 420m/s. Moderate recoil and an unconventional recoil pattern (up and left) can make this weapon difficult to use at longer ranges.
The Serpernt VE92 Currently has the highest close range DPS of any carbine in the game, tied with the New Conglomerates GD-7F.
Serpent VE92 or VX6-7Edit
The Serpent VE92 and VX6-7 are both great CQC weapon options, but each have their pros/cons. The Serpent VE92 has a minimal fire rate increase over the VX6-7 (45 more) and costs less (650 certs or 499 Station Cash), but has a lower bullet velocity and longer reload. They both have the same attachment options.
Ribbons and MedalsEdit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the Serpent VE92. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Serpent VE92. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Serpent VE92.
In addition, the Serpent VE92 has less vertical recoil, which can make it easier to control while aiming down sights. There is a catch to this though, as the Serpent has an unconventional recoil pattern of up and to the left (most weapons pull to the right). At the same time, the VX6-7 has a tighter hipfire cone of fire.
