Vanu Esamir's AdvWep labs designed the heavy-hitting Flare VE6 to pack the most punch per shot. In the hands of an experience marksman, the Flare can wreak havoc on enemy infantry at close to medium ranges.
Developed by Vanu's Esamir labs, the Flare VE6 is a powerful weapon useful at any range. With the highest damage of any Vanu LMG, a skilled player can be an efficient killer in all situations. Some of the unique attributes of this weapon include equal left/right recoil, a 3-round burst mode, and the ability to equip both soft point and high velocity ammunition.
Created to better suit carbines and assault rifles for support roles, the OG-4's simple crosshair allows the user to make accurate shots at a distance. It uses 4x magnification perfect for mid-range fights.
The weapon's muzzle flash and noise generation is reduced, and the player no longer appears on the minimap when firing. In exchange, the weapon's damage falls off 20 meters sooner, and bullet velocity is reduced by 15%.
A compensator redirects gases upward, reducing vertical recoil. The increased sound pressure will cause the player to show on the minimap from farther away, and increased weapon bulk reduces accuracy when firing from the hip.
The Flare VE6 and Ursa are both competitive LMG options for long range combat, but both have their pros/ cons. The Ursa has a higher bullet velocity and a shorter reload, making it the better option for pure long range firefights. The Flare costs less (350 less certs or 200 less station cash), has a minimally higher fire rate (just 7 more rounds per minute), and has more firing modes. This makes the Flare good at long range combat, but better (than the Ursa) at transitioning into medium to medium-short range combat. Another detail to notice is that the Ursa has a different look to it than other Vanu LMGs, which players may find aesthetically pleasing.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the Flare VE6. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Flare. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Flare.
