The L85A1, contrary to popular belief, is not the most accurate assault rifle.
It has the least accurate rapid-fire/full auto assault performance, and the worst prone benefit. However, the scope allows
players to place shots better at medium to long range when fired in semi-automatic mode, making it functionally more accurate for some.
The M95 is not the most accurate sniper rifle, nor is it the most damaging.It does have the ability to shoot through cockpit glass, and that may be thereason that some damage numbers for the weapon show higher than the M24, butin actual practice it does the same damage to a player as the M24, requiringtwo hits to the torso to kill or one head shot.
The DAO-12 is a must have upgrade for the Anti-tank kit. At close range it is
far more deadly than the standard sub-machinegun, with a good rate of fire and
decent ammo capacity. The DAO-12 requires two shots at point blank range to kill.
However, reloading the DAO-12 takes 7.5 seconds, one shell at a time.
The MK3A1 is a very lethal close quarters weapon. While doing less damage per
shot than the pump-action shotguns, it does a bit more damage than the S12K or
DAO-12, and it can fire all 7 shots in just over one second. Like all shotguns,
it is not accurate beyond short range, and it has an enormous recoil penalty.
It also has a 5 second reload time.
The G36C is an accurate, versatile weapon, and a popular unlock for many
players, with good single shot and full automatic performance, from the
hip or zoomed. It does not come with a red-dot scope, so for some players
the M4 or AK-74U may be a better choice for longer range engagements.
The PKM is just as accurate firing multiple rounds as the RPK-74, and does
more damage per shot than any other LMG, though it only has a 100 round magazine.
The high damage and accuracy of the PKM makes it a solid upgrade for the Support
The G3 is an interesting weapon. It does more damage per shot than the other
assault rifles, but its reputation for accuracy is misleading. It has the
highest minimum deviation of all the assault rifles and highest possible
deviation per shot. It also has the lowest recoil when zoomed, but has higher
multi-shot penalties than any other assault rifle.

health soldier in a single shot. On top of that, the L96A1 is together with

of its load time which is equal to the M95.
