The VX29 Polaris is a versatile
VS LMG. With its wide range of attachments, it can excel at close quarters or medium ranges. With a 100 round magazine and access to an advanced laser sight and soft point ammo, this gun is effective in CQC. With a forward grip and compensator, you can turn this weapon into an effective medium range gun. You can even create a hyrbrid by mixng and matching some attachments. However, due to its versatility, this weapon has a moderate fire rate, giving it a high time to kill.
HS/NV Scope (1X)
Nanite Systems' HS/NV scope has no magnification, but provides high contrast outlines to nearby objects and illuminates nearby soldiers.
HPR Reflex (1x)
Designed as a replacement for standard iron sights in close-quarters combat, the Holo-Projected Reticle sight creates an accurate dot-and-circle reticle above the top rail. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
VHO Reflex (2x)
The revolutionary Vanu Holo-Optic reflex utilizes nanotechnology to project a circle and dot reticle. Additionally, it features a 2X magnitude zoom for better performance in urban combat scenarios. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
The Vanu Marksman's Scope is the standard for mid-range engagements. It uses a minimalistic chevron reticle inside of its Vanu-styled housing.
V3 Holo (3.4x)
Within its ornate triangular housing, the V3 Holo uses a red dot sight and 3.4x magnification for mid-range combat scenarios.
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.
The CSZ's 4x magnification make it a favorite amongst designated marksmen in the Vanu Sovereignty. This scope uses a triple chevron reticle.
The TriGon-6 won the Vanu Sovereignty's bid as their standard sniper scope. It features 6x magnification and standard mil-dot sighting.
The suppressor reduces the noise and muzzle flash generated by the firearm, and prevents the player from showing on the minimap when firing. Bullet velocity and effectiveness at range are reduced.
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 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 forward grip greatly increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 33%.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
Soft Point Ammunition
Soft Point Ammunition increases the weapon's maximum damage range by 5 meters, but reduces its projectile velocity by 5%.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
