  • The Apollon 5 is a fusion-charge LMG that possesses inverted recoil, causing it to grow more accurate during prolonged firing.

    The abbreviation for this weapon is 'MG5.'

    Characteristics[]

    Advantages:

    • Grows more accurate during sustained fire
    • While in inventory shield recharge delay is decreased by 25%

    Disadvantages:

    • Very slow reload cycle
    • Relatively low capacity
    • Requires sustained fire to stay accurate, slowing player movement
    • Upgrades to Recoil/Ctrl may be detrimental, as the weapon requires more shots to become accurate and grows inaccurate quicker after the player stops firing
    • High heat generation with prolonged firing

    Perks[]

    • Inverted Recoil
      • Grows more accurate during sustained fire
      • Recoil increase weakens the accuracy gain from sustained fire
      • Control increase quickens the reset to base accuracy
    • -25% Shield Delay
      • Reduces shield regeneration delay by 25%

    Notes/Tips[]

    • Upgrades to Deviation will reduce the starting spread of the weapon
    • A timed variant is given to the player during a Massacre quest; has a small chance to be a timeless variant, as with all timed weapons
      • Note that if the Massacre quest is completed, the weapon will be removed from the player's inventory and placed out-of-bounds (in solo) or nearby (in co-op). This can be avoided if the weapon is dropped prior to completing the quest but it will no longer be usable.
    • Focus on utilizing items, attachments, and modules that increase recoil generated per second and decrease deviation
      • The Commando's Drill module will reduce the weapon's starting spread (Deviation) as well as increase fire rate, increasing the maximum accuracy that can be achieved through prolonged firing.
      • Installing the Offload Cycler Ultra attachment will help gain accuracy quicker while spending less time vulnerable from firing slowdown.
      • The Tsunami Talisman will reduce the base spread (Deviation) of the weapon significantly for a short duration.

    Trivia[]

    • This weapon is based on the Heckler & Koch MG5.
