The S-AS PDW is one of the many secondary weapons available in the game. Alternatives include the ACT 44, Colby RSA, Colby SNR 850, Joker RFP-9, N-FA 9 and the Obeya FBW.
“The Somatic Advanced Systems Personal Defense Weapon is used by militaries all around the world as a compact weapons system for APC drivers and Helicopters pilots. Designed originally as a lightweight primary weapon rather than a sidearm, the PDW provides comparatively little recoil, though it has low stopping power.”[table “” not found /]
The PDW fires much slower compared to the N-FA 9, but fires with less recoil and contains 2 more bullets in it’s magazine. Honestly, I haven’t used much of the PDW, as I’m more of an FBW fan.
Anyone can help clarify, but I think the only difference between the N-FA9 and the S-AS PDW is if you want your automatic pistol to shoot fast or slow.
If you find yourself utilizing a long range play style, the N-FA 9 and S-AS PDW can both be viable options to aid you in close range.
