(Minor typo chautemoc it's IJC not ICJ.)

It feels like they nerfed down the MK23 a bit from their stats in IJC, but I haven't checked up on the relative stats, just going off when I played with them. I think I prefer the magnum as a side arm, since it actually one shots crawlers, which is something the MK23 cannot do. It's worth the 2kg hit on a Berserker. The MK23 has the slowest reload time of any pistol period when dual wielded, so it seems like having only one is the way to go no matter what, which could make it a good early weapon for sharpshooters, so they can roam the map and pick up stuff to sell, making use of the 2kg extra. The other main use would be for Demolitions, LAW weighs 13kg, giving them exactly 2kg spare if they don't have pipe bombs. Though with either case, the MK23 feels so much like an M9 that I'm not sure if buying one would really be worth it. Idk, it overall just didn't impress me in practice.

Only other weapon I tried out was the HSG-1, seems decent for the low price, didn't feel any different from when it was an IJC weapon, I think it does help better define the power curve in the Shotgun tree, but the combat shotgun is still over-expensive compared to where the others are placed. Which would make the HSG-1 a good alternative, not as much power, but it's speed and utility definitely makes up for it.
