The WES is the Tier 7 short-barrel rifle of the Sapper class. Its performance is most comparable to the KOG V and the PR39. It is extremely powerful in close quarters, featuring similar damage and an even higher rate of fire than the KOG V. It also features a slightly larger magazine of up to 39 rounds with an extended magazine (compared to the KOG's 35). This allows the WES to outperform the KOG in close quarters, with its time-to-kill only rivaled by the PR39, the Enforcer, and the Stacker.

Compared to the PR39, the WES kills in 3-4 shots, while the PR39 kills in 2-3. The WES also features similar accuracy to the PR39, which is slightly lower than that of the KOG, but features a longer range than other assault rifles and SBRs, meaning that mid-longe range firefirghts are now more viable for the Sapper when using this weapon.

One notable downside to the WES is a very slow reload (much like the PR39), a trait shared by most SBRs. Therefore it is advised to attempt to engage one enemy at a time and reload in between firefights, as running out of ammo in the middle of a firefight can prove fatal. However the use of turrets can mitigate the long reload time while playing defensively.

Overall, the WES is considered among the top-tier weapons available to the Sapper class, slightly surpassing the KR-15 in most regards. Compared to the Stacker, the WES arguably has the advantage in longer-range engagements, while the Stacker's high-rate of fire and much faster reload time give it the edge in closer-range combat and permit a more aggressive playstyle.

Trivia Edit

  • The WES's time-to-kill is comparable to the KOG V or the Bramson, which makes it very effective given its better range.
  • The WES paired with the Shoulder Gun can be an effective combination for a more aggressive playstyle with the Sapper class, as the Shoulder Gun can help deal with enemies while the WES is reloading.
  • Many Tier 7 weapons share attributes of high damage and fast time-to-kill balanced by a long reload speed. The Bramson, PR39, DBS 4 and WES are examples of this.
