Data Sources

The T1 Cycler is the standard issue assault rifle of the Terran Republic. It is available to all Terran Republic characters by default.

The T1 Cycler is the TR equivalent to the NC NC1 Gauss Rifle and the VS Pulsar VS1, which tend to be the middle ground between all the available assault rifles and serve as solid starter weapons.

The scope of attachments available for the T1 Cycler is limited, with access to no alternate ammo types, no compensator, and only the basic Laser Sight and Forward Grip. However, the T1 Cycler starts with the red dot variant of the RTA Reflex Sight unlocked, as well as the Forward Grip, serving as a suitable all-round starter assault rifle for a fresh Combat Medic.

Community General Tips and Strategies Edit

  • The T1 Cycler's versatility is a double-edged sword- it will be outclassed against other weapons that are suited for close quarters or long range engagements if caught in their effective ranges.
  • Like most TR assault rifles and carbines, it has more damage per magazine (although not terribly so) compared to faction equivalents at the cost of a longer reload time.
  • Only reload when necessary, having a larger magazine and more damage per mag is a virtue not to be wasted. You will also be more vulnerable while reloading due to the longer reload.
  • Other faction equivalents are the NC1 Gauss Rifle and the Pulsar VS1
  • In "one vs. one" long range fights (35-50+ meters) stand still in order to maintain good accuracy, but remember this will leave you vulnerable to snipers.
