Note: Available as part of Sixth Anniversary Bundle.

The VE-H Maw is a light machine gun available to the Vanu Sovereignty. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The VE-H Maw is a light machine gun released alongside the MGR-L1 Promise and MG-H1 Watchman as part of a new series of Empire Specific weapons. Each seek to fill a gap in that faction's LMG lineup, and come with unique attachments. For the Maw, these are the Vented Power Core and Unstable Ammunition.

Damage Fall-offEdit

Stats in yellow are with Soft Point Ammunition

  • 167 at 10 meters (15 meters)
  • 143 at 47 meters (49 meters)
  • 125 at 75 meters (75 meters)

Role Edit

  • The Maw excels in outputting damage, with a high fire rate, and fast reload speed compared to the Flare VE6 and Ursa, the Vanu's other 167 damage LMGs. And shares DPS profile similar to NC LA1 Anchor.
  • The Maw is notably versatile, with access to a unique selection of optics, rail and ammo types, as well as reasonable pick from the normal pool of attachments.
  • The Maw has a lower damage-per-magazine than the Flare VE6 or Ursa, having only 60 rounds in the battery (compared to 75 for the other two).
  • The Maw struggles to output damage at range compared to the Ursa (which has a minimum damage of 143 at 75m), though shares the same minimum damage as the Flare VE6.
  • The Maw sacrifices some accuracy for its damage output, with a significantly higher first-shot recoil as well as a lower muzzle velocity.
