The Onyks serves as a medium between a submachine gun and a light assault rifle.


The Onyks is a rare weapon, seen only in Gaia.


The Onyks is unlocked at level 44 in multiplayer. It is a highly versatile weapon and is capable of filling a lot of roles. The damage and fire rate are more akin to assault rifles, while it retains mobility and handling similar to a submachine gun. While it retains its higher damage out to a longer range, it does take a degree of control in order to keep on target, as the recoil, albeit it being moderately low, can still be possible to throw off aim if one is not careful.

Magazine capacity is quite impressive, just eight rounds shy of the AR-57. However the Onyks triumphs in its power at a distance, substituting the sheer saturation of bullets for more accurately placed power shots.

Equipping Extended Mags is a solid option, an unloaded Onyks and even a loaded one take a while to reload, longer than most other submachine guns when they are dry. Keeping an eye on the ammo counter is essential and it could be costly to habitual reloaders.

Nevertheless, its versatility of both assault rifle and submachine gun aspects make it a popular choice on multiplayer.
