"The very light Falcon autopistol is great for chasing an enemy down and finishing him off. It's lightweight projectiles inherit 100% of your velocity and deal a consistent lower damage than the LAR but suffer no falloff."


The Falcon is an unlockable automatic weapon for the Light Armor; it is a sub-machine gun with the fastest projectile speed, aside from the hitscan weapons. With the release of patch version 1.1, the projectile live time has been reduced from 1 second to 0.5 seconds, which means the range of the weapon has been cut by half. The hitbox for the bullet has been reduced by half as well. The damage has been reduced from 65 to 60. The Falcon now inherits 100% of the player's velocity, whereas before, it inherited zero.
