Data Sources
Census API source: NSX-A Kappa API Data?

The NSX-A Kappa is a auraxium version of common pool Submachine Gun NSX Tengu, from Nanite Systems Export series.

It is available for completing the Master tier of CQC Primary directive for the NSO.

While the Kappa has several similarities to the Tengu, the higher fire rate, combined with more manageable recoil, result in much more control over the gun while firing.

The Kappa also features a higher minimum damage per pellet, and when combined with the softer recoil, allow the gun to succeed in mid range encounters much more consistently than the Tengu.

History[edit | edit source]

  • August 28, 2019 Update
    • NSX-A Kappa minimum damage from 50 to 42
    • Dev Note: We've corrected an oversight with the minimum damage range of this weapon where it was equivalent to the maximum damage. This is a slight nerf, and stays in line as a Tengu variant while giving Soft Point Ammunition a reason to exist on the weapon.
