An article about the best battle rifles in the game!

Read the full article here:

Are you someone who loves playing on huge maps but also loves pushing objectives or securing them? Well, if you do, then a battle rifle is for you! Battle rifles in general are weapons that use high caliber rounds. They have a huge kick to them, and they are highly customizable.

There are a total of 7 battle rifles in the game, and I’ll be ranking them from the worst ones to the best ones! These battle rifles will be ranked by their strengths and not by their popularity. As a side note, the majority of battle rifles are on the security forces while the insurgents only get two, but hey, maybe a new update will add new ones, who knows? Anyway, let’s get into this article!

7. G3A3

That’s the G3A3 he’s holding.

The first battle rifle that we’ll be talking about is the G3A3, which was manufactured by the Germans in the 1950s. It was adapted in 1959 and still sees service to this day, and that’s for good reason. It’s a damn good battle rifle, and it can serve you well in battle.

You can customize it to be deadly at long range or go full Rambo up close. The gun uses a 7.62 round, which is more than enough to put someone to sleep. But the biggest downside to this weapon is that it has a slow fire rate.

G3A3 Stats:

  • Cartridge - 7.62x51mm NATO
  • Vertical Recoil - 29
  • Horizontal Recoil - 15
  • Muzzle Velocity - 800 m/s
  • Rate of Fire - 500 rpm
  • Penetration - 400pp
  • Magazine Capacity - 20+1 rounds
  • Reserve Ammunition - 3 mags
  • Supply Points - 4
  • Weight - 24%
What G3A3 Excels In:

  • You can use it at long range or up close.
  • Due to the slow fire rate, the battle rifle can easily be controlled while shooting fully automatic.
  • The penetration is decent enough to get someone hiding behind the cover.
How To Get G3A3:

  • You can obtain this battle rifle when you pick the rifleman, demolitions, observer, or commander class in the Security Forces.
