VE-S Canis API Data
VE-S Canis is a submachine gun available to the Vanu Sovereignty. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.
The VE-S Canis is a 3rd generation submachine gun released alongside the
MGR-S1 Gladius and the MG-S1 Jackal as part of a new series of Empire Specific weapons. Each break the convention of that faction's SMGs, and come with unique attachments. For the Canis, these attachments are the Vented Power Core, Unstable Ammunition and Emission Condenser.
The Canis has a unique mechanic, in that the fire rate will increase to 667 RPM over 2.5 seconds whilst firing. This bonus resets immediately upon releasing the trigger. The Canis is a rather odd weapon, with a high damage profile yet a lower than normal fire rate, compared to the
AF-4 Cyclone or the MG-S1 Jackal. However, the benefits that Unstable Ammunition provide make the Canis incredibly potent for players with lower skill levels, in spite of the reduced headshot multiplier.

An emission condenser reduces noise, muzzle flash, and prevents the player from showing on the minimap when firing, but bullet velocity is reduced by 50%.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
Advanced Laser Sight
An advanced laser sight increases hipfire accuracy by 33%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
Vented Power Core
Removes the speed penalty when reloading an empty magazine, but the weapon will recoil more harshly in one direction.
Unstable Ammunition significantly increases the size of projectiles fired while reducing headshot bonus damage by 80%.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the VE-S Canis. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Canis. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Canis.

December 7, 2017 Update
December 13, 2017 Hotfix
Unstable Ammunition headshot multiplier has been reduced from 2x to 1.2x
Unstable Ammunition projectile collision size has been scaled back a bit.
Unstable Ammunition now uses different particle effects.
Dev Note: We'll be reviewing the state of all three of the new SMGs after these changes go Live, to determine whether further adjustments are needed.
February 8, 2018 Update
Unstable Ammunition no longer penalizes cone of fire.
Base rate of fire from 500rpm to 550rpm
Dev Note: The baseline rate of fire increase helps push Canis into a more competitive position. Unstable Ammunition dropped the cone of fire penalty, as the more recent headshot multiplier reduction was sufficient to balance out the power of the attachment.
