rate of fire
At 2900 credits, the Phantom is the equal-price competitor with the Vandal.
In comparison, the Phantom has a faster firing rate and a larger magazine so it is better in close-ranged combat.
It has damage falloff so you'll need two headshots instead of one at longer ranges.
Having a silencer not only quiets its shots but also visually conceals bullet tracers, so enemies cannot trace your shots through smokes.
