"Conditioning for arid environments has given this custom NJ4 an increased fire rate, at the cost of how much damage is dealt." In-Game Description.


The like the standard NJ4, the Desert NJ4 fires it's rounds at an extremely fast rate, giving it a very high DPS (higher than the standard version). Like all automatics in Tribes: Ascend this weapon is not hitscan and requires the player to lead their target when firing.
