Additionally, it keeps you invisible to enemy radar when firing, making it difficult for them to locate your position.

Next, select the Bruen Heavy Support Grip. This underbarrel attachment substantially reduces horizontal and vertical recoil, as well as gun kick, enabling you to hit precise shots.

Go with the Corio Eagleseye 2.5x for the optic, which grants a smooth magnification and clean reticle for an easier aiming.

Alternatively, should magnification be unnecessary, swap out the Corio Eagleseye for the JAK Glassless Optic, which offers a projected dot and decreases visual recoil for improved accuracy.

Finally, opt for the 60 Round Magazine. Despite trimming the default ammo count, it grants ample bullets for prolonged gunfights, while also boosting your aim down sight, sprint-to-fire, movement, and reloading speed.
