The Beowulf is a standard light assault rifle commonly used by members of the United Colonies faction, and perfectly compliments the Grendel.


The Beowulf rifle, named after the Old English poem of the same name, appears to be a bullpup rifle – a light assault rifle. With a 30-round magazine, the Beowulf is a perfect mid to long-range weapon for any Spacefarer.

It might not have the same fire rate as its Grendel counterpart (also a Beowulf poem reference), but the Beowulf more than makes up for that with higher damage and accuracy.

Fire rate: 50

Range: 40

Accuracy: 69.1%

The Beowulf has a baseline fire rate of 50, though the speed at which you reload will ultimately determine how close you can get to this rate of fire. Accuracy determines the spread of your gun, with lower accuracy weapons having more spread than others. Some ammunition and magazine weapon mods can drastically alter the rate of fire, accuracy and effective range of any weapon, so it’s worth experimenting with the Beowulf weapon mods to make the Rifle better fit your playstyle.

Without modification, Beowulf comes with 8 mod slots.

Beowulf ammo

The Beowulf requires 7.77mm Caseless ammunition, and has a magazine capacity of 30.
