―In-game description
Like the NG7, the INSAS LSW is also absent from the main campaign although it makes a cameo appearance in the intro of Gaia where one of Lani's bodyguards is seen in her dossier photo carrying one.


The INSAS LSW is unlocked at level 31. Its most unique characteristic is firing the first five rounds at the rate of the M240B's output before reducing it to the lowest of its class. While this appears problematic, its high damage often makes up for its lower speed and still be lethal. The recoil will be reduced as well once the fire rate has stabilized. It is possible to feather tap the trigger, allowing the user to repeatedly fire the first five rounds at the higher rate.

This weapon is best employed in a support role, but has a bonus in both mobility and handling traits to allow it some more aggressive assault tactics too. It does have a slightly faster aim time and mobility than its peers, but is still a hair slower than the assault and marksman rifles. It also is the only magazine fed machine gun and pleasantly has the quickest reload of the class.

Attachment wise, the INSAS LSW has a few different options than the rest of the class. The Ammo Belt and Over-Gassed are absent while the Dual Mags is unique to it.

Also when reloading the INSAS LSW, the player will use their right hand instead of their left. The animation does obstruct a large portion of the player's vision temporarily. The same is seen with the Abakan. This can be fixed with the Dual Mags attachmenta and every odd reload.
