  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Rear Grip: Lachmann TCG-10

Up first is the Polafire Suppressor. This provides increases in bullet velocity, damage range, and keeps gunfire off any enemy radars. Alongside the muzzle, the combination of FSS Sharkfin 90 and Lachmann TCG-10 significantly reduce recoil making the LM-S much easier to control.

Lastly, the Lonewolf Optic provides a crystal-clear view of anyone that walks into the crosshair while the FT Mobile stock provides a boost in mobility.
