The FTAC MSP-98 Handstop underbarrel attachment provides aim walking speed, helps in controlling vertical recoil, reduces gun kick and increases movement speed. You can already notice how much value the underbarrel is adding to the weapon.

The choice of muzzle helps in shorter radar pings, aids in reducing vertical and horizontal recoil, and provides firing aim stability.

For the barrel, we will use the Striker Recon Long Barrel which provides bullet velocity and range, along with aiming idle sway.
