The best Sidewinder accessories

  • Mouth : Boron-490
  • Canon: Tempus Predator Sniper Cannon
  • Cannon accessory: Bruen Heavy Support Handle
  • Telescope : MK.3 reflector
  • Rear handle: RB Borealis handle

The Sidewinder seriously lacks the precision to stand out against its competitors. This is why this class aims to drastically increase precision, even if it means losing mobility.

The Bore-490 Cannon, the Bruen Heavy Support Grip and the RB Borealis Grip all have the same goal of making the Sidewinder more precise and stable
The Tempus Predator Precision Cannon will improve bullet velocity, to increase the effectiveness of the combat rifle at medium and long range.

The best features and equipment with the Sidewinder

  • Vest : Overarming Vest
