For today’s PUBG post, we have the SCAR! This weapon has gained immense popularity due to its battlefield capabilities and its presence in nearly every shooting game out there. Designed by FN Herstal in 2004, this weapon has been in service since 2009 and has seen conflict in Afghanistan, Iraq, and several other operations. The main purpose of the design was the be extremely modular- changing the barrel is the only step needed to switch calibers in some situations (like 5.56-300blk). The SCAR was designed specifically for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to win a competition for a new service rifle. The competition was called the “Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle,” which is where the name “SCAR” comes from. (Also, to those saying “assault rifles don’t exist,” yeah...) Anyway, the SCAR has a relatively low rate of fire at 600-650 rounds per minute, but that was done intentionally to enhance controllability during full auto firing. Besides the US Special Forces, roughly 15 other countries have adopted the SCAR for their military and police functions. For some technical specs, the SCAR comes standard in H and L models, H being .308 and L being 5.56. The effective range of the L is roughly 650 yards, and the range of an H is 870 yards. There isn’t too much more to say about this weapon: it was a great design made for a specific purpose, and it does very good at it. If you want to own a SCAR, expect to pay roughly $2,700-3,500 depending on the model and caliber. As always, thank you for reading, I appreciate your time, and I hope you’ve enjoyed! Now I need to ask for a follow and like because that’s what you’re supposed to do when you have a page... so yeah. Do that please!
