Lore[ | ]

The Alternator A-2 is a double-barrel submachine gun developed by Burrell Defense. The successor to the Frontier War-era Alternator A-1, a notable visual change includes a more ergonomic handguard. It is chambered with a 10mm round and fires 1000 rounds per minute. Nicknamed the "Hatchet" due to its shape, high rate of fire, and brutally "chopping" up its targets in close quarters engagements. Its firing range is effective at 200 meters with a muzzle velocity of 800 m/s and has a muzzle energy of 510j in 9.78 m/s².

Tried and true, the recoil dampening system is ideal for firing while in movement. Its high speed, lightweight, compact design allows its user to operate melee weapons while accurately delivering a hail of gunfire downrange.[1]

Skins[ | ]

Trivia[ | ]
