SpecOps
G36C

1

Details

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.


Real World Statistics


Caliber: 5.56×45 mm NATO

Details

The Special Forces Capable Assault Rifle (SCAR) was commisioned by US SOCOM for use by the US Special Forces. It is capable of holding either “light” 5.56mm rounds or “heavy” 7.62mm rounds. The SCAR-L is the light variant.

In BF2 Special Forces the SCAR-L is the unlock you can choose for the Spec-Ops class.

Caliber: 5.56×45 mm NATO

Upgrades: Top, bottom, and side Picatinny rails, available in close-quarters and sniper variants

Sniper
M95

1

Details

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 the reason that some damage numbers for the weapon show higher than the M24, but in actual practice it does the same damage to a player as the M24, requiring two hits to the torso to kill (or one head shot)

Accuracy-wise, it is functionally the same as the SVD/Type 88, though the “bullet drop” factor at longer ranges may give the M95 an edge with longer shots. While bullet drop has been confirmed, no data on how this is applied is available.

The M95 is a solid choice for MEC/PLA snipers as an unlock, as it gives them more damage per shot than the standard sniper rifle, and can be a good choice for the USMC player as well, if the need for shooting aircraft crew is important. It should be noted, however, that hitting a moving helicopter or jet crewman with an M95 is extremely rare.

It does have a drawback at long ranges, the width of the crosshairs in the scope make it more difficult to line up head shots than any of the other sniper rifles.

L96A1

1

Details

The L96A1 is apt to become the most beloved sniper rifle in the assortment. While EA/DICE tries to sell their expansions as balanced with the original game, this gun is clearly a cut above the rest. Take together the best of the M24 and M95 and you’ll end up with the L96A1. It has the same firepower as the M24 and M95, these rifles will reduce the health with 95% of a full health soldier in a single shot. On top of that, the L96A1 is together with the M24 the most accurate weapon in the game. But it overpowers the M24 because of its load time which is equal to the M95.

It was rumoured that this gun would instant kill with one shot, but this is not true. It was supposedly the case while the 1.2 patch was in beta, just like the M95 and the M24, but for obvious reasons this was changed for the official release.

While the personal preference of a sniper will decide between the L96A1 and the M24, the L96A1 is clearly a better choice than the Type 88 or SVD. The M95? Well, ain’t it fun to shoot a non-expecting pilot out of his cockpit?

Assault
G3A3

1

Details

The G3 is an automatic self-loading rifle manufactured by Heckler & Koch and adopted as the standard service rifle by the armed forces of Germany in 1959. The H&K G3 is the unlockweapon for the Assault kit. It’s 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 Min. Deviation of all the assault rifles and highest possible Deviation per Shot as well (just a little worse than the AK-47). It has the lowest recoil when zoomed mod, but has higher multi-shot penalties than any other assault rifle.

This makes the G3 the least accurate assault rifle, even when firing single shots from the prone position. In rapid-fire/auto-fire from the prone position, it becomes more accurate than the AK-47, but only after three or more shots have been fired.

There are some advantages to choosing the G3 over the standard rifles though. It gives the player regular grenades, which at times can be more useful than the grenade launcher, it does pack power that USMC players might lack, and the ring and post sight on the G3 can make long distance shots easier to line up for some players.

One other advantage the G3 may have over the other assault rifles is reduced “bullet drop” at longer ranges. Bullet drop has been confirmed, but no data on how this actually works is available.

Support
PKM

1

Details

The PKM is just as accurate firing multiple rounds as the RPK-74,, possibly even more so, and does more damage per shot than any other LMG, though it only has a 100 round magazine. Seeing as you should generally fire in short bursts anyway, this is rarely a problem. The high damage and accuracy of the PKM makes it a solid upgrade for the Support player, especially USMC/PLA players.

Fair warning though: the PKM has a very distinctive sound when fired which may draw extra attention to the player firing it.

Engineer
MK3A1 (Jackhammer)

1

Details

The MK3A1 (Pancor Jackhammer) 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, so be prepared to switch to your pistol or knife when using this weapon.

Medic
L85A1

1

Details

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.

It does a bit more damage than the M16A2 (but still requires 4 hits to kill a healthy target), and the scope is useful for spotting as well as good shot placement, making the L85 a very desirable unlock.

Antitank
DAO-12

1

Details

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. Similar to the MEC S12K, the DAO-12 requires two shots at point blank range to kill, but has a larger magazine and better zoom recoil. However, reloading the DAO-12 takes 7.5 seconds, one shell at a time.

Get close and have a quick trigger finger. One shot won’t kill a full health player, but a quick volley of 3-4 will. However, at a distance of more than 15-20 feet, the DAO is highly ineffective and will do no more than just decrease your accuracy stat. Pull out the AT or pistol for anything distance.
