Unlocked at rank 64 and costing 28,000 credits, the Automat-X is the second-last primary weapon unlocked, and features high recoil, good damage, clear, open iron sights and a large 42 round magazine. The gun plays less like a light machine gun, and more like a heavy assault rifle. Remarkable about this weapon is its tight hipfire accuracy. This may be the best way to fire without a grip in many situations.
The iron sights are clear and open, making optics debatable, though a Grip and ACOG Scope can make the Automat-X a great support weapon, usable as a counter-sniper weapon.
The long reloading time will be a big disadvantage for new players with this weapon. It needs to be played tactically, with as few missed shots as possible. It may be a good choice to equip a handgun as a sidearm. In this case, the player will get used to switching weapons when it is needed to reload. However, using FMJ rounds at close range enables the Automat to kill extremely quickly in close quarters.
