Assault Rifles (AR) in PUBG PUBG Guide and Tips

Assault Rifles are, without a doubt, the most versatile weapons in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. This chapter contains detailed descriptions of this type of weapon.

Assault rifles are, inarguably, the most versatile weapons in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Weapons of this type bridge the gap between LMGs and sniper rifles - they have large magazines, deal high damage and have high accuracy that is surpassed only by that of sniper rifles. This makes these weapons virtually flawless - they are perfect over any distance and, with appropriate scopes, they can play the role of a makeshift sniper rifle) and in nearly any situation.

Obtaining an assault rifle at the beginning of the game will let you survive the first several minutes of the game. - Assault Rifles (AR) in PUBG - Weapons - PUBG Guide

The damage presented in the table is for a character who got shot at an unprotected torso. Depending on armor used and body part shot, the damage will vary - more details in Reducing damage chapter.

There are several things to remember, while using this type of weaponry:

  1. Assault rifles are weapons that you should search for in the first place - finding one should be your priority.
  2. These weapons can be used for combat over short and medium distances, and M416 and SCAR-L are also efficient over long distance, provided that they are equipped with appropriate optics.
  3. If you carry one or two weapons of this type, it is a good idea to carry an additional optics. Thanks to this, you can attach a 4 or x8 sight to your weapon to fight efficiently over medium and long distance and, if necessary, attach laser or a reflector sight for indirect combat.
  4. Assault rifles gain in effectiveness after you attach a silencer. Thanks to this, your audibility will be decreased by a half (from 700 to 350 meters).
  5. Carrying two assault rifles is a neat idea, especially that some weapons (such as AKM and Groza) are much better over medium distance, due to lower accuracy and higher damage dealt, whereas the remaining ones are better over long distance. It is best to carry one weapon firing 7.62 rounds (AKM or Groza) and one firing 5.56 (M16A4, M416 or SCAR-L).
  6. Remember about the firing mode switch. Single fire is perfect over long distance, when you need to take an accurate aim. At the same time, auto-fire is much more effective over shorter distances. Also, remember that M16A4 does not fire in auto mode - instead, you can fire the weapon in Burst mode.
