The Solstice VE3 is the default carbine for the Vanu Sovereignty. It is available to the Light Assault and Engineer class. When a new VS character drops into combat, they are using the Solstice as their primary as part of the Light Assault class. The Solstice is a versatile gun and can be used effectively from point blank range to about 60 meters.
The Solstice can easily take accurate shots at anyone from close to long range due to the high accuracy the weapon possesses. Like many other VS weaponry, the Solstice has no bullet drop so a standard suppressor can be added with only the muzzle velocity to worry about. However, it has relatively high horizontal recoil, so a forward grip is recommended for ADS-main players. For new players, laser sight is highly viable for hipfire, which bypass having to compensate for horizontal recoil while retaining high accuracy and mobility.
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.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the Solstice VE3. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Solstice VE3. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Solstice VE3.
