Data Sources
Census API source: GD-22S API Data?

The GD-22S is a light machine gun available to the New Conglomerate. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The Genudine Dynamics - 22S provides a simple and effective weapon for fast-paced gameplay. With a 50-round magazine that can be reloaded at speeds that put carbines and assault rifles to shame, and usable minimum hip cone-of-fire values, combined with a relatively simple recoil, the GD-22S perfectly suits a more aggressive playstyle, although the weapon's slightly lower rate-of-fire compared to similar options is a consideration.

The closest analogue to the GD-22S is the LA1 Anchor. Though they share the same damage model, the Anchor shoots faster, has access to an Advanced Laser Sight and Soft Point Ammunition, and has slightly improved minimum hip cone-of-fire values. However, the GD-22S reloads considerably faster, and has a higher velocity as well as slightly friendlier recoil.
