The Light Bowgun is a smaller version of the Heavy Bowgun, but allows the player to be more mobile while doing almost the same function as the Heavy Bowgun.
Unlike the Heavy Bowgun, the Light Bowgun can only be equipped with 4 mods that can improve the stats of the weapon. But at the same time, the synergy between these stats and the supported Ammo Type defines what that Light Bowgun is used for.
Also the same with the Heavy Bowgun, it is up to the player to decide which Light Bowgun to use depending on the playstyle and customizing it to make it more comfortable to use.
The stats for the Light Bowgun mainly determines what kind of mods the Light Bowgun will use. Improving these stats can help make the Light Bowgun significantly easier to use.
|Ammo Size||Determines how many shots you can do before reloading. (Higher ammo size is better.)|
|Recoil||Determines the how fast you can fire shots on the Bowgun. (Lower recoil is better.)|
|Reload||Determines the reload speed of the Bowgun after you expend your magazine. (Faster reload speed is better.)|
|Deviation||Determines how far your crosshair moves from its original position after firing. (Lower deviation is better.)|
There are 32 Ammo Types for the Light Bowguns in the game. Some Ammo Types have numbers which indicate the strength or effectiveness of that Ammo Type.
Each Light Bowgun can only equip some of the Ammo Types in the game and this mainly defines what that Light Bowgun is best used for.
