The S-576 PDW is a versatile SMG created by Co-TEC and sold at the Quick Shop. It is a CommonRarity.svgCommon item that does not have to be unlocked, as any prospector can purchase it from the start.


The S-576 PDW can have 8 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapon's type, so only attachments that have SMG or Light Ammo as a category can be installed onto a S-576 PDW.


A popular SMG with high rate of fire, formidable at close range.


The CoTEC S-576 is one of the standard firearms used aboard Federation ships, stations, and outposts.

The Mk.II version of the S-576 PDW can only be found as loot on Fortuna III, which means it can't be crafted or bought in Prospect Station.
