"The Jackal fires up to three rounds that stick to any surface, and are remote triggered for detonation. The rounds must be stuck to a surface to detonate. +50% damage to vehicles."

The Jackal is an unlockable primary weapon for the Light Armor. The Jackal is based off of the Medium Armor's Arx Buster, and was originally named the Remote Arx Buster. The Jackal fires three rounds that are remotely detonated by reloading the weapon. The weapon does not fire all three rounds at the same time or automatically fire them back to back, the player controls when each round is fired. With the release of version 1.1, the rounds can no longer be detonated in the air.
