All of the NC weapons have decent stopping power but none of them are effective outside of medium range. In addition most of them aren't the best in CQC or going full auto, they need to be burst-ed (4 to 5 shots). I wouldn't recommend the burst fire rifles as they require a lot of practice and are pretty ineffective in CQC and longer ranges. What I do recommend is any of our shotguns, those things put people down relatively well however they don't do well at range. Honestly I'd rather have a weapon suited for CQC & medium range combat. Shotguns and explosives work pretty well for me, but give some of the weapons a try.
