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 compensator redirects gases upward, reducing vertical recoil. The increased sound pressure will cause the player to show on the minimap from farther away, and increased weapon bulk reduces accuracy when firing from the hip.
The Flare VE6 and Ursa are both competitive LMG options for long range combat, but both have their pros/ cons. The Ursa has a higher bullet velocity and a shorter reload, making it the better option for pure long range firefights. The Flare costs less (750 less certs or 200 less station cash), has a minimally higher fire rate (just 27 more rounds per minute), and has more firing modes. This makes the Flare good at long range combat, but better (than the Ursa) at transitioning into medium to medium-short range combat. Another detail to notice is that the Ursa has a different look to it than other Vanu LMGs, which players may find aesthetically pleasing.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the Ursa. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Ursa. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Ursa.
