A fully automatic and lightweight machine gun given to all Frontiersmen.
Default, starting weapon. Fair damage and range. Versatile and effective, more so in groups.
This utterly reliable weapon is standard issue for all Frontiersmen. Based on a Czech-Consortium design, and modified with United Trans-States parts, the CZU's high rate of fire and near non-existent recoil represent the peak of light-weight, multi-use weapons. Against standard human opponents, the CZU shreds armor and delivers extreme suppression capabilities. Against the Kharaa, it allows rapid response for a squad, especially against fast moving targets – but should not be used as a solo-mission weapon against heavier targets. At long range, its slight spread reduces accuracy.
