About[edit | edit source]
The Deepcore GK2 assault rifle is the Scout's default primary weapon. It is a bulky assault rifle built out of dark-coloured metals. The weapon's stubby barrel is contained within a heatshield, resting above a huge foregrip. The weapon's ironsights, while visible, are not used. When reloading the Scout knocks the spent magazine out of the receiver with a new magazine, before slamming it into the weapon.
With a respectable damage potential, plenty of reserve ammo and forgiving recoil, the GK2 is an excellent mid-range assault rifle perfect for taming the hostile wildlife of Hoxxes IV. Its easy-to-use nature makes it a great choice for greenbeards and veterans alike and it is capable of remaining relatively accurate while firing on the move. Alongside its respectable stats, the weapon has a moderately high stun chance when aiming for weak points which helps for crowd control.
The weapon suffers when targeting foes at long ranges. Enemies such as Glyphid Acidspitters, Glyphid Webspitters, Glyphid Wardens and Mactera Spawn who like to keep their distance can stay out of the GK2's effective range, requiring the use of tap-firing to ensure that shots land. The weapon's base firing rate is also somewhat sluggish. Thankfully, both of these flaws can be corrected though the use of Modifications.
Modifications[edit | edit source]
There are five tiers and each tier has up to three upgrades, only one upgrade can be equipped per tier.
Unique Modifications[edit | edit source]
Battle Frenzy[edit | edit source]
Battle Frenzy gives the scout a 50% movement speed increase for three seconds after destroying any creature or object with the GK2. Only the killing blow needs to be dealt with the GK2, and the Scout does not have to have the weapon out to keep the speed bonus in effect. The speed bonus will stack with all other speed bonuses, except itself, and Grappling Gun's Momentum upgrade. Getting another kill with the GK2 will simply reset the timer.
Battle Cool[edit | edit source]
Battle Cool prevents bloom from accumulating when firing the GK2 for 1.5 seconds after destroying any creature or object with the GK2. Bloom from previous shots will continue to decay until the GK2 returns to its base accuracy. Base accuracy is affected by the Gyro Stabilisation upgrade. Recoil is not reduced by this bonus. Only the killing blow needs to be dealt with the GK2 to trigger the bonus.
Getting another kill with the GK2 will simply reset the timer, meaning that chaining kills together will make the weapon laser-accurate. Pair with the Hollowpoint Bullets mod to deal maximum damage to enemy weakpoints, which will be easier to do with the increased accuracy.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In earlier versions of the game, the GK2 had a much more realistic design with a longer barrel, smaller foregrip and a more shapely stock.
