The Heavy Scout Rifle features a higher rate of fire and an extended magazine compared to semi-auto sniper rifles.

The HSR-1 is a semi-automatic scout rifle used by the infiltrator class. Like the KSR-35(which outperforms it in every category except for hip-fire accuracy) it is an accurate weapon intended for use at medium range. Unlike the KSR-35, the HSR-1 boasts the ability to attach both a compensator and laser sight to improve the weapons performance, in addition to the standard upgrades available to all weapons, such as the flashlight, suppressor, and forward grip. Like the KSR-35 the HSR-1 can attach all of the standard non-sniper scopes, including the iron sight(default), reflex sights, holographic dot sights, and 3.4x, 4x, and 6x variant marksman scopes.

The HSR-1 has a couple of unique properties listed below:

- You cannot see your own tracers very easily as they disappear quickly after being fired

- Near-misses from the HSR-1 and other scout rifles will play the same sonic-crack sound effect that a sniper rifle near miss makes.

- The weapon firing sound effect has unique audio.

Short Range Performance:

While the laser sight upgrade available for the weapon indicates that the weapon could potentially be used in close quarters and fired from the hip, I don't recommend that you do this as hip-fire accuracy is woefully inadequate and there are better options available to the infiltrator in such scenarios such as the SMG-46 Armistice.

Medium Range Performance:

Medium Range performance is similarly lackluster, the KSR-35's superior damage and sustained fire accuracy make it better than the HSR-1 at this range.

Final Thoughts:

If you're looking for a reasonably good rifle that can be customized to fill both the medium and short range niche's in your play the HSR-1 is a good choice. However if you are looking for a rifle specific to one playstyle or the other there are better options out there.
