Each of these attachments has an impact on the values of a weapon, some positive and some negative. We thought we’d figure out which does what, but apparently, we were wrong.

According to the official in-game stats, the Merc Foregrip should only have a positive effect on dispersion and precision when firing from the hip. As you saw above, that proves to be far from the grip’s capabilities.
