The EM1 is a light machine gun available to the New Conglomerate. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The Esamir Munitions 1 is a clear take on the Icon TR.png T16 Rhino, as a suppression-focused tool. As one of only two New Conglomerate light machine guns on a lower calibre, the EM1's damage-per-second is somewhat lackluster compared to other options in the arsenal, however the weapon's favourable recoil, high muzzle velocity, and fast reload are boons that can aid in its intended role.

All of this weapon's niches can be supplemented with the weapon's wide range of attachments including an Advanced Laser Sight, the option to use Extended Magazines, and access to loading Soft Point Ammunition, which can further compound on the weapon's extended 20 meters maximum damage range.

Damage Fall-off[edit | edit source]

Stats in yellow are with Soft Point Ammunition.

  • 143 before 20 meters (25 meters)
  • 125 at 46 meters (48 meters)
  • 112 after 65 meters (65 meters)
