Heavy modification has reclassified this NS-30 Vandal as a "non-lethal rifle", capable of firing concussive smart-slugs that slow enemy infantry on impact. While less powerful than the original, the Tranquility boasts higher projectile velocities and remains suppressed at all times.

Data Sources
Census API source: NS-30 Tranquility API Data?

The NS-30 Tranquility is a common pool battle rifle available to all factions. It is unlocked through purchase with A7 from black market vendor in Sanctuary.

Compared to NS-30 Vandal, Tranquility deals 1 tier less damage across the board, has slightly lower Rate of Fire, in exchange for concussive effect on hit, similar to Concussion Grenade. As well as built in suppressor, with overall better velocity. The NS-30 Tranquility gives off a glowing green bullet tracer effect when fired as it carries concussive ammunition, which also makes determining faction affiliation difficult to enemies. Unlike most other battle rifles and other weapons alike, the NS-30 Tranquility cannot be equipped with a 2x or 4x magnification which are most popular on infantry weapon classes.

History[edit | edit source]

  • June 17, 2020 Update
    • Is now correctly classified as a Battle Rifle, instead of a Scout Rifle, in the loadout screen.
    • Direct damage from 280at75m - 250at150m to 280at15m - 225at150m
    • Slow on hit no longer stacks with other Tranquility users, or with Concussion Grenades.
    • Dev Note: These changes primarily change the weapon's effectiveness at long range so that it's not competing directly with semi-auto sniper rifles.
