reach about 3500 kills with 3 mostly used NC LMG so i thought to give you some feed back. First the stats. GAUSS SAW NC6 ( third weapon used ) kills 1124 shots fired 34323 accuracity 26.670% play time 17h50 modules -aimpoint x2 -advanced forward grip -high velocity rounds -vertical compensator muse + same accuracity as any other NC LMG + more deadly short burst fire ( pack more damage per bullet ) + more instant damage with more almost dead/dead ennemy after first burst fire + more killing power in a single clip ( between 6 to 8 at least - told you, it is deadly ) + best upgragre/most needed upgrade avaiable + once upgraded, you can compete with sniper at long range ( almost ^^ ) with single shot fire + give you a single "chance" in CQC to crush TR and VS weapons ... aim well + slower RoF help a little to control burst fire + save credits and/or SC money - really long reload time - still underpower in CQC unless you crush ennemy with a well aimed burst - need to be fully upgraded to become usefull ( forwarad grip and vertical compensator muse indispensable ) GD-22S ( first weapon used ) kills 1152 shots fired 41717 accuracity 24.592% play time 22h03 modules -aimpoint x1 -forward grip - that's all + small price ( credits/SC money ) + "assault rifle" like LMG with 50 rounds but average reload speed ( but still good ) + enough ammo to kill 2 or 3 ennemy ( 3 without too much wasted bullets ) + a little bit easier on CQC thanks to good RoF ( but still overpowered by TR/VS weapons ) + good accuracity on single fire. + cheaper to fully upgrade ( less good modules ) - can t buy the vertical compensator muse + high celocity round upgrade = a little bit less accurate on mid/long range short burst fire - lack of ammo capacity both in clip and on the overall ( full 5x50 rounds against 4x100 rounds for the two others ) - lack the pushing/crushing capacity of the EM6/GAUSS NC6 once you have thrown the situation in your favor ) because of ammo clip size. EM6 ( second weapon used ) kills 1152 shots fired 41327 accuracity 26.670% play time 20h44 modules -aimpoint x2 - forward grip -high velocity rounds -vertical compensator muse + same accuracity as any other NC LMG + well balanced in terms of RoF/damage but still the same recoil feeling as the GAUSS NC6 + huge clip ( 4x100 bullets ) combine with "good" reload speed ( for a LMG ) + best upgragre/most needed upgrade avaiable - cost crédits/SC money - still overpowered in CQC/short range by TR/VS weapons despite the improvement of the RoF. - a little bit less puch on mid/long range and in clip killing/pushing capacity In my opinion, if you can t handle the GAUSS NC6, don t except to do any better with the EM6. The EM6 is still overpowered by the TR/VS weapons at CQC range and it will slightly decrease your damage capacity at med/long range in which NC are best used. Maybe the GD-22S will give you some opportunity and allow you to change your game style a little but it will lack some serious upgrade module to become a most wanted killing machine but it will do well the job without ) The GAUSS SAW NC6 was a really good surprise after skipping it. I found the same feeling than the EM6 with MUCH more stopping power and killing potential per round. In CQC it is the only weapon that made me feel to have a chance ( sometimes ) with a good and punishing aiming. But still, keep in mind that CQC is your real weakness and TR/VS are still far better than you at this range.
