    Hey everybody. Just wanted to confirm that the Carbon Fiber 8k Weapon with the Helium sensor is the same camera as the new dsmc2 helium camera. After they homologated everything. Also will it be upgradeable when eventually a new sensor comes out. Basically is it a dsmc 2 camera. Thanks!

    I have a CF Helium, and specwise is exactly the same as the "regular" one, except that it's higher end, being CF. Better finish, lighter weight...

    Daniel answered the question really. They are as far as anybody knows the same when it comes to processing power.

    In the past and likely to some extent in the future Carbon Fiber bodies got certain perks particularly during the upgrade process. Same for Forged Carbon Fiber bodies. But in terms of what's under the hood, yes, the same.
