Field usage

As the default weapon of the Combat Medic class, one has to understand how to use the Pulsar VS1 in order to maximize combat efficiency. Although it is not the most powerful weapon, some training will significantly improve performance with this weapon.


The accuracy can be close to 100% in close combat, but the lack of stopping power discourages any engagement against heavy infantry. Almost one full magazine is required to take out a Heavy Assault's overshield and health. Unfortunately there is no magazine expansion upgrade for this weapon, so in order to extend the use of this weapon on the battlefield without resupplying, accurate shots in close combat are advised. Purchasing the Laser Dot (Certification) upgrade is recommended.


This weapon's accuracy at mid and long range will enable a Combat Medic to engage all infantry with minimum risks, making him useful on the 2nd line. A scope or HS/NV upgrade is recommended for increased aiming capabilities. The semi-automatic mode helps to attain a smaller spread when firing.
