The MG-S1 Jackal is a 3rd generation submachine gun released alongside the MGR-S1 Gladius and the VE-S Canis as part of a new series of Empire Specific weapons. Each break the conventions of that faction's SMGs, and come with unique attachments. For the Jackal, these attachments are the BX Adapter and Hybrid Suppressor.
Compared to other submachine guns available to the Terran Republic, the Jackal is far more accurate and deals much higher damage per bullet at most ranges, though sacrifices a significant amount of fire rate for these perks. The Jackal, in this sense, is more comparable to the AF-4 Cyclone, a New Conglomerate submachine gun.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the MG-S1 Jackal. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the Jackal. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the Jackal.
Suppressed audio now uses the correct rate of fire.
BX Adapter icon changed.
BX Adapter received an updated tooltip.
BX Adapter no longer reduces ammo capacity.
BX Adapter reload speed from 2.25sec./2.92sec. to 2sec./2.6sec. (Same as the default reload.)
BX Adapter can no longer be equipped at the same time as the Hybrid Suppressor.
Dev Note: We decided to keep the BX Adapter a niche attachment while fixing some quality of life issues it created. The velocity increase helps the weapon play more nicely with Hybrid Suppressor, and complements the accuracy focus of the base weapon.
