Description[edit | edit source]

Reliability, brutal precision, and ease of maintenance made the G2A4 and G2A5 Battle Rifles a mainstay in Frontier colony arsenals, these are the tenets the G7 Scout seek to uphold. Manufactured by Lastimosa Armory, the G7 Scout is virtually indistinguishable mechanics-wise from its hallowed ancestors, still packing a semi-automatic punch at mid to long-range. The biggest change from the G2A5 was the frame being replaced from a milled tactical stock to a solid composite body intended to serve the role of a Scout Rifle.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The G7 Scout is the only weapon to have a rare reload animation, where the magazine is ejected out of the top.
  • It was originally designated as the G2A6, making it more in line with the naming scheme of its Frontier War ancestors.
  • The G7 Scout appearance is based on the real-life semi-automatic rifle Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM 16 fitted with a J. Allen Enterprises JAE-100 chassis.
  • The Crimson Firedrake legendary skin sports the phrase "You Owe Me Awe" a nod to the 2002 thriller "Red Dragon" in which the main antagonist Francis Dolarhyde speaks to his victim Freddy Lounds before murdering him.
