Compared to the ARC pistols, the Westar M5 gets considerably less ammo. It is an especially big problem when used with the sniper mode. It is accurate only when fired standing still. The grenade launcher fires sticky EMP grenades at higher speeds that cover more distance than hand-thrown.
Levels & Effects
Level 1: This provides the Westar M5 with a grenade launcher. This launcher already comes with an EMP grenade.
Level 2: Provides another EMP grenade and decreases the delay between launching EMP grenades.
- This weapon has low accuracy, so use it in up close combat.
- Don't bother with long range fighting unless you have a scope.
- By pressing ALT-ATTACK, you can launch a pulse grenade given you have a pulse grenade and the grenade launcher attachment. These grenades stick to both walls and people. If you do stick a grenade to someone, get out of the area before the pulse grenade's effect hits you as well as your opponent.
- Don't consider the normal Westar-M5 to be useless. Given its price, it delivers a strong punch for close combat.
