Here are the recommended attachments for the .50 GS:
- Forge TAC Enforcer (Barrel)
- 1mW Laser (Laser)
- Match Grade Trigger (Trigger Action)
- 13 Round Mags (Ammunition)
- Stippled Grip Tape (Rear Grip)
This selection of attachments is the best balance of damage output, fast rate of fire and recoil control. Adding a laser further improves accuracy when firing from the hip, perfect to be accurate when there’s no time to aim down the sights.

Don't Stop Shooting
It is very easy to think that you have secured a kill using the .50 GS when in fact you haven’t.
