The B.A.S.U. is effectively a very accurate, high-powered pistol-based weapon with solid damage and medium fire rate. It boasts an impressive mobility of a pistol and range that falls between SMG and assault rifles.

The most prominent drawback of the B.A.S.U is its very small clip size of only 5 rounds, however it compensates for this with a very fast reload. Because it is based on a pistol platform, the weapon also displays scope sway while aiming and strafing, making hip-firing much more viable to engage at short range; when ADSing, the player will have take the scope sway into account and make sure the scope is centered on the target in order to maintain accuracy.

On the whole, the B.A.SU. is a very unusual weapon - performing somewhat akin to a battle rifle such as the Charbtek-28. If the player aims their shots accurately and avoids engaging too many foes at once, the weapon can prove effective for "hit and run" attacks due to its superior mobility, but players with bad aim will be punished severely.

The B.A.S.U. features 3 enhancement slots, with a preferred enhancement type of Experimental.

+
  • Medium damage-per-shot
  • High accuracy
  • High effective range
  • Top-tier mobility on par with pistols
  • Fast reload
  • Low rate of fire compared to most automatic weapons
  • Low clip size
  • Low reserve ammo
  • Less effective when engaging multiple targets
  • Scope sway can be disorienting
