Data Sources
Census API source: AMR-66 API Data?

The AMR-66 is a scout rifle available to the Terran Republic. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The AMR-66 provides numerous classes with a hard hitting, accurate rifle to give them some reach they may otherwise be lacking. In exchange, the AMR-66's close quarters performance is hampered two-fold; a low rate-of-fire and underwhelming hip accuracy leave the weapon outclassed by a gigantic selection of weaponry common on Auraxis.

The AMR-66, Icon VS.png Eidolon VE33, and Icon NC.png Warden are statistically nigh-identical weapons, with the only difference found in the Vanu option's muzzle velocity, which is lowered in exchange for the faction's 'no bullet drop' trait.
