Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros
  • Decent medium-range potential and fire rate.
  • Great for contesting snipers.
Cons
  • 1.75× headshot multiplier.
  • Glowing iron-sight reticle may obscure vision for some players.
  • At closer distances, threatened by SMGs / Shotguns.
  • At longer distances, the slow bullet traveling speed makes it harder to hit enemies.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Reliability, brutal precision, and ease of maintenance made the G2A4 and G2A5 Battle Rifles a mainstay in Frontier colony arsenals, these are the tenets the G7 Scout seek to uphold. Manufactured by Lastimosa Armory, the G7 Scout is virtually indistinguishable mechanics-wise from its hallowed ancestors, still packing a semi-automatic punch at mid to long-range. The biggest change from the G2A5 was the frame being replaced from a milled tactical stock to a solid composite body intended to serve the role of a Scout Rifle.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The G7 Scout is the only weapon to have a rare reload animation, where the magazine is ejected out of the top.
  • The G7 Scout is the only weapon to have its class changed, from sniper to assault rifle.
  • The G7 Scout is one of two assault rifles to reduce ADS speed to sniper levels, the other being the 30-30 Repeater. This was done to reinforce the idea that these two weapons are marksman rifles, not assault rifles.
  • It was originally designated as the G2A6, making it more in line with the naming scheme of its Frontier War ancestors.
  • The G7 Scout appearance is based on the real-life semi-automatic rifle Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM 16 fitted with a J. Allen Enterprises JAE-100 chassis.
  • The Crimson Firedrake legendary skin sports the phrase "You Owe Me Awe" a nod to the 2002 thriller "Red Dragon" in which the main antagonist Francis Dolarhyde speaks to his victim Freddy Lounds before murdering him.
