Let me first start by saying that unlike many TR engies and light assault, I kinda like the TRAC-5. I like the design logic behind the weapon- a cqc oriented carbine that's held back by difficult recoil instead of low bullet velocity. Imo it also gives a very nice introduction to TR weapon design in general- high fire rate, high side to side shake, high magazine capacity (with relatively short reload in relation to other 40 round 143 damage /750 rpm weapons) dakka dakka dakka. Problem is, the Jaguar exists. TRAC-5 and Jag share the same damage model (143 @10m, 112 @60m) and the same fire rate (750) thus share an exact same time to kill. However, the Jag is much easier to control because it has a much smoother recoil pattern (basically kicks straight up) while the TRAC-5 jitters all over the place because of the high FSRM AND the Jag has 0.75x ADS multiplier. What advantages does the TRAC-5 have? 50 extra m/s bullet velocity. TRAC-5 also reloads faster but a 0.2 second difference on a weapon that long reloads close to 4 seconds is unnoticeable. Now, a 50 m/s extra velocity is not nothing, but it isn't enough of an advantage to make it worth taking over the Jag. In a game where weapons are sidegrades of each other, TRAC-5 got left behind, imo. So what am I proposing? Capitalize on the TRAC-5 being a cqc carbine that's also viable at range. Bump the bullet velocity up to 515 (from 490), give the TRAC-5 access to an advanced grip and give the TRAC-5 access to high velocity ammo. It's still going to be inferior to the Jag in cqc and will still be a btch to control at range but at least it will give it a niche- that of a cqc carbine that can still reach out and touch some people.
