Note: Accuracy bonuses/penalties are displayed as they're seen in tool-tips and orange text within the game; a +1 increases your chance to hit and a -1 decreases it. This might cause some confusion with anyone used to table-top rules where -1 is good and +1 is bad.

Generally speaking, BA weapons are weaker and shorter range than the mech equivalents. They make up for this by firing en masse as all members of a BA team contribute damage when firing.

Energy

Medium Laser

Medium Lasers are lightweight with good accuracy and respectable damage. They do not require ammunition and are generally more accurate but produce higher heat than ballistic weapons. The BA Medium Laser is identical to the vehicle and 'mech mounted one.

PPCs

Support PPCs are light PPC-class weapons, dating back to the Star League era, though they only saw use on battle armor in the 3060s, with the Draconis Combine's Void suit. The S-PPC has low damage but respectable range for a battle armor weapon and is a low muss, low fuss weapon. PPCs also degrade the accuracy of their target if they hit.

BA SMG

An infantry-scale SMG carried in the hand of a suit of Battle Armor, the BA SMG exists to deal with infantry. While capable of damaging heavier armor in theory, in practice the BA SMG has extremely short range and damage for large-scale combat and is difficult to use effectively against armor. The upside is it has unlimited ammunition.
