 The Sirius SX12 is a faction-specific submachine gun (SMG). This weapon is used by the Vanu Sovereignty, meaning that all classes within the VS have access to it, being the second generation alternative to the Eridani SX5.

The main trait of the weapon is it's face-melting firerate at 845rpm. This makes the weapon extremely deadly at close range, especially when coupled with the weapon's good hipfire and low recoil. The firerate ties it with the New Conglomerate's Blitz GD-10 for the second-fastest firing SMG in the game, only bested by the Terran Republic's SMG-46 Armistice. The weapon also posesses a large magazine and a decent reload time, making it suitable for engaging multiple targets.

Being an SMG, the weapon is mediocre at longer ranges, due to it's bouncy (but still low) recoil and slow bullet-velocity, along with pitiful damage at range.

This weapon is popular with Infiltrators, due to it being a great close-quarters option and being an effecting weapon with a silencer attached.

The styling of the SX12, is unique having sparkplug like mechanics to iterate the futuristic vanu feel, the cartridge is gold in appearance and it's dual barrel lay out allows for the 845 fire rate.

Although having a fast bullet velocity, do be wary, it lacks any sort of long range ability and is restricted to around the 25-40 meter mark, depending on attachments.

The weapon will cost 1000 cert points, which will unlock only for the character whom you purchased it on, or 700 Station Cash, which will unlock for all VS characters on your Station Account.

Suppressor 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.
