Characteristics[]

This weapon deals primarily DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage.

Advantages:

  • High DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture and DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage – effective against health and shields.
  • Extremely high accuracy per shot, even at full auto.
  • Minimal recoil.
  • Silent - will not be present on opponent's minimap.
  • Large ammo reserve.
  • High reload speed.
  • High fire rate.
  • Low zoom when aiming.

Disadvantages:

  • Fourth lowest base damage of all rifles, after PrismaGrakata.png Prisma Grakata, Soma.png Soma/SomaPrime.png Soma Prime, and Grakata.png Grakata; very reliant on its good critical damage potential.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 22m to 34m target distance (distances are affected by Projectile Speed).
  • Poor ammo economy.
  • Fairly low magazine size in contrast to its high fire rate.
  • Low zoom when aiming can make ranged shooting more difficult.

Notes[]

  • The weapon's firing sounds increases in pitch when 15 or less rounds are remaining in the magazine, indicating that the weapon's magazine is almost empty.

Trivia[]

  • The Baza are a genus of bird of prey in the Accipitridae family.
  • Physically, the weapon bears a strong resemblance to the real-life PP-19 Bizon SMG. Mainly due to Baza's underbarrel, horizontal magazine, and it's overall appearance.
    • The name Baza may be derived from the PP-19's nickname, Bizon.
