Operators Balancing

A detailed breakdown, as well as the rationale as to why we are making these changes, can be found in the Designer’s Notes.


  • Damage decreased to 65 (from 99).
  • Adjustments to damage falloff to align with other pistols for consistency.
  • Reduced magazine size to 12 (from 15).

  • Upgrade to full-automatic fire mode from 2-round burst fire mode.
  • Updated recoil to align with other full-auto weapons.
  • Increase total ammunition at 161 (from 121)
