    The guide is fairly basic, since learning to play with Scout Rifles has more to do with learning how to play Infiltrator, rather than with Scout Rifles themselves.

    Overall, non-sniper Infiltrators play similarly with any type of weapon, just with some corrections to desired engagement range. Doesn't really make a difference whether you want to shoot someone in the back with an SMG within 15m, or with an auto scout rifle within 30m.

    I saw an old (I think) video from someone who argued that the NS7 PDW with foregrip and compensator was a better choice than a SA scout as it performed pretty much the same but with better hipfire - any thought on this?

    There is some rational thought to this. Within 20m, NS-7 deals slightly more DPS and kills faster with headshots, while being more or less easier to control. Compensator not really needed, though. Outside 20m, FA Scout kills faster with headshots, but at those ranges it's getting tough to land as many.

    Technically, FA Scouts have slightly better horizontal recoil, and no recoil angle, and higher damage model makes them more effective at range. But within ~30m, sure, NS-7 with a Forward Grip will do roughly as good or better.
