    So, about new assault rifles:

    I'm guessingthat TR one will be in role of T5 AMC and Bull. Mid to long range with emphasis on 50-80 meters with 652 rpm and good accuracy like.

    VS might get alternative to HV-45 in style of Carnage AR, but more like Orion (seems built that way) 143/750 like damage model with decent to great accuracy and short reload. Or 167/577(600) assault rifle with lower speed built midranges, since you have Corvus and CME for that role.

    NC might get automatic marskman AR. We have 2 midrangers in Reaper and NC1, close to mid rangers in Carnage and GR-22 and our TRUE long range option is Gauss Burst

    So today I finished last 297 kill needed for Reaper DMR auraxium. Gun ain't too bad on medic, but doesn't suit my engagement ranges well enough.

    I found that either you go with 2x scope and AFG or go all the way with Comp, 2x scope, HVA and AFG. Gun has hip CoF of an lmg and when you shoot someone with it from the hip, you pray to hit and kill more than try to hit and kill. Guns low velocity without doesn't lend it too well at range, but there is some king of issue, if you use HVA without Comp, I seems that bloom is way too big, even for 200 damage cof bloom, however Compensator fixes it. It's not truly long range AR, I would take Warden over it at long ranges, but it's a good midranger, sacrificing accuracy, damage per reload, DPM, horizontal recoil for a bit faster TTK and sniper magnet position perfect aim. I'd actually take NS-11A or Gauss Rifle Burst for long range.
    AFG doesn't seem to drop horizontal recoil enough to be usable at long range...

    In other words, NC1 Gauss Rifle > Reaper DMR in all but TTK and is free. Don't waste too much on Reaper.


    Next Auraxium target: Mag-Shot.

    New shotgun. Enjoy VS, you get JH variant :P. I'd actually use it, once I auraxium Claw and Mauler.

    I like the Thanatos for the tight pellet spread, so I guess I should enjoy this one. Definitely getting one for my double xp certs.

    I dont think this NS shotgun is a good idea, lol. Generally, the jackhammer is regarded as the best shotgun, and that's because it's super accurate. So, i think making this available for everyone could be a huge mistake.

    I agree. I don't want a Jackhammer, and I don't want an MCG. I also don't want my enemies to have Lashers.

    I guess it's just SOE having completely given up on faction identity and asymetrical balance.

    I think the jackhammer, although pretty much the best shotgun in the game, is a bit boring in that it is just another shotgun. It would be nice if it was more unique, but I don't how to do that without making it ridiculously overpowered (like full auto, massive magazine, explosive ammo).

    Was thinking the exact same thing... but then it starts sounding a little bit like a lasher. D:

    A slug that explodes on impact would be pretty cool though.

    i've always thought the jackhammer should be like the reaver's AI shotgun with explosive pellets that have a very small blast radius and wide spread, but a lot of damage so it's not straight up better than other shotguns and it fills a niche like the mcg and the lasher

    New assault rifles with stats. VS seem to be shafted again :/ Though they did need better AR options. NC get their long range option finally. TR allrounder is interesting.

    Um, the VS one appears to be strictly semi-auto. That's not a bug, is it?

    Blurb seems to imply it is as intended...

    I wish they would release some weapons that actually get me excited. Every time I read about new weapons I think: meh. Then I look at them and cant even be bothered to think "meh".

    The VS one is supposed to be a 2-round burst weapon.

    We all know how well loved the Equinox burst is. Ah well, will wait to see how the new weapon handles but I'm finding it hard to get excited about a semi-auto close range weapon, surely you could just use a shotgun instead?
