A dependable, hefty weapon. Usually not the first choice of proper Dwarves, but the combination of heft, weight, and satisfying boom makes it worthwhile all the same.

— Item Description

The Deepcore GK2 assault rifle is the Scout's default primary weapon. It is a bulky assault rifle built out of dark-colored metals. The weapon's stubby barrel is contained within a heatshield, resting above a huge handguard. The weapon's ironsights, while visible, are not used. When reloading the Scout knocks the spent magazine out of the receiver with a new magazine, before slamming it into the weapon. All ammo not used is lost with the magazine.

The GK2 is a standard automatic assault rifle. Because of this, it has a substantial and noticeable bullet drop. This generally means that for every 10 meters away a target is, you need to aim about 1 meter above it (after accounting for recoil and travel time). A range indicator can be brought seen in the iron sights of the GK2, initiated by double tapping right click to aim. This aim also has a small boost to your recoil compensation and tighter spread, though you speed is decreased to a similar degree as when focusing with the M100 rifle.


Modifications[]

There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.

Stats Breakdown[]

Ideas for Overclocks in season five[]

There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.

Unique Modifications[]

Battle Frenzy[]

Icon Upgrade MovementSpeed

Battle Frenzy gives the scout a 50% movement speed increase for three seconds after destroying any creature or object with the GK2. Only the killing blow needs to be dealt with the GK2, and the Scout does not have to have the weapon out to keep the speed bonus in effect. The speed bonus will stack with all other speed bonuses, except itself, and the Grappling Gun's Momentum upgrade. Getting another kill with the GK2 will simply reset the timer.

Battle Cool[]

Icon Upgrade Aim

Battle Cool prevents bloom from accumulating when firing the GK2 for 1.5 seconds after destroying any creature or object with the GK2. Bloom from previous shots will continue to decay until the GK2 returns to its base accuracy. Base accuracy is affected by the Gyro Stabilisation upgrade. Recoil is not reduced by this bonus. Only the killing blow needs to be dealt with the GK2 to trigger the bonus.

Getting another kill with the GK2 will simply reset the timer, meaning that chaining kills together will make the weapon laser-accurate.

Unique Overclocks[]

Bullets of Mercy[]

Frame Overclock Balanced
Icon Upgrade DamageGeneral

Bullets of Mercy will multiply the damage of the GK2 by 1.5x whenever it is dealing damage to an enemy with one of several different status effects. The multiplier will only apply one time even if a creature is affected by multiple status effects.

  • Stunned
  • On Fire
  • Frozen
  • Electrocution
  • Neurotoxin
  • Poison
  • Radiation (only from Fat Man and Gamma Contamination)
  • Pheromone Darts (but not the Pheromone Canisters)

  • Sticky Goo

Electrifying Reload[]

Frame Overclock Unstable
Icon Overclock Special Magazine

Electrifying Reload is an Unstable Overclock

Every creature that was damaged by the weapon will get a 100% chance of receiving Electrocution status (4.5 Electric Damage every 0.2s for 6s, and x0.2 Movement speed) when the weapon is reloaded.

  • Bullets stay through Born Ready activation but can still be activated on next reload.
  • A full reload is not necessary to activate Electrifying Reload. It will trigger at the beginning of the animation. Canceling the reload, by switching weapon for example, will still activate the effect.

Mastery[]

Each modification that is purchased advances a mastery bar by one unit.

Mastery unlocks:

  • Three modifications – First Stripe Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin First Stripe
  • Seven modifications – Deepcore Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin Deepcore
  • All (13) modifications – The Company Special Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin The Company Special

Trivia[]

  • In earlier versions of the game, the GK2 had a much more realistic design with a longer barrel, smaller foregrip, and a more shapely stock.
