The NSX Sesshin was intended as a multi-class platform that filled an aggressive, mid-long range combat role, though it was eventually set aside as company resources shifted in favor of developing the Daimyo and Tomoe.
The Sesshin brings over its lack of damage dropoff, low recoil, and 2.5x headshot damage multiplier from its Tomoe counterpart, but features a lower rate of fire, and higher damage per bullet. This makes for a very manageable recoil profile, allowing for engagements at very long ranges, while maintaining its presence at mid range encounters.
It is available for completing the Master tier of Long Rifles directive for the NSO.
For marksmen that prefer to not put themselves directly in the fray, the Nanite Systems Quadra scope allows users distance between themselves and their intended targets. The Quadra comes equipped with a simple crosshair at 4x magnification.
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.
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the NSX-A Sesshin. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the NSX-A Sesshin Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the NSX-A Sesshin.
