Let’s dive into which attachments make the HRM-9 a truly overpowered weapon.

Combine this with the Folding Stock for enhanced recoil control and improved fire aim stability.

You can extend your range for long engagements by attaching the Princeps Long Barrel, boosting bullet velocity, range, aim idle sway, and firing stability.

Add in the Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip as the underbarrel attachment to further enhance gun kick control, vertical recoil, aim idle sway, and overall stability.
