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.
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. Unlike either of those weapons, the Serpent is only 250 certs instead of 1000. Its hip-fire is decent enough to be used at close-quarters and its recoil, while bouncy, is easily controllable.
The main downside to this weapon is its slow muzzle velocity at 420m/s. However, it is worth noting that this trait is negligible, as this weapon does not suffer from bullet drop (a typical Vanu trait) and isn't really intended for longer ranges to begin with. Therefore, players can use a silencer without fear of increased bullet drop. The weapon also suffers from a considerably lengthy reload.
The Serpent VE92 is immensely popular with VS troops, due to its high degree of effectiveness at close-range and relatively low cost to obtain.
The Serpent VE92 will cost either 250 certs, which will only unlock for the character whom you purchased it on, or 500 Station Cash, which will unlock for all VS characters in your Station Account.
Designed as a replacement for standard iron sights in close-quarters combat, the Holo-Projected Reticle sight creates an accurate dot-and-circle reticle above the top rail. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
The revolutionary Vanu Holo-Optic reflex utilizes nanotechnology to project a circle and dot reticle. Additionally, it features a 2X magnitude zoom for better performance in urban combat scenarios. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
Created to better suit carbines and assault rifles for support roles, the OG-4's simple crosshair allows the user to make accurate shots at a distance. It uses 4x magnification perfect for mid-range fights.
A flash suppressor makes the shooter less visible to the enemy without affecting muzzle velocity or damage. A very small reduction in full-auto accuracy makes burst control necessary for extremely long ranges.
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 (750 less certs or 200 Station Cash), but has a lower bullet velocity and longer reload. They both have the same attachment options.
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.
