Hi guys FOG of GAMING here and welcome to player unknown’s battlegrounds. Today we are going to compare the M16A4 with the SCAR-L. I will show you the statistics, the weapon customization options, the bullet pattern and I will show you how many bullets it takes to kill . At some point you might get the opportunity to swap an M16A4 for a SCAR L or vice versa. Sometimes this will happen because you got lucky and on other occasions this might happen because you ripped it out of the cold dead hands of your enemy.
We have all asked ourselves the following question: is the swap worth it or not? And that is the question that I will try to answer for you today. The M16 rifle is a United States military adaptation of the Armalite AR-15 rifle. In 1964, the M16 entered American military service and the following year it was deployed for jungle warfare operations during the Vietnam War. The M16A4 is the fourth generation of the M16 series. It is equipped with a removable carrying handle and Picatinny rail for mounting optics. It was adopted in 1998. The total worldwide production of M16s has been approximately 8 million, making it the most-produced firearm of its mm caliber. The U.S. Army has largely replaced the M16 in combat units with the shorter and lighter M4 carbine, and the U.S. Marine Corps approved a similar change in October 2015. In player unknown’s battlegrounds, the m16a4 is a burstfire assault rifle.
It has a power rating of 37 which is decent for an assault rifle. The m16a4 excels in its ranged capabilities. It has an effective range rating of 62 making it the best suited assault rifle for those long range kills. The stability rating on the other side, is by far the worst among all other assault rifles, only 27. The m16a4 earn another gold medal when you look at the firing rate, it has a rating of 81 which is again the highest rating. It’s pretty clear the this rifle is a weapons of high’s and low’s. The m16a4 uses the 5.56mm cartridge. This type of ammunition is also compatible with the m416, the scar l and the M249 light machine gun.
As you know you will be sharing these rounds if you are carrying any of the other weapons. The m16a4 has a 30 round magazine, and like all primary weapons in battlegrounds, it has a standard capacity of 500. The m16a4 has a semi-automatic mode or a burst fire mode. The statistics that you saw are the basic stats, but they can be improved if you can find the right attachment.
The muzzle mods are a flash hider, a suppressor for an automatic rifle and a compensator. You can also use an extended magazine, a quick draw magazine or an extended quickdraw magazine. And you can attach 5 different sights, a holographic sight, a red dot sight, a 4 times, 8 times and a 15 times scope. Let’s meet our second weapon, the scar l. The FN SCAR or the Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle, is a gas-operated self-loading rifle with a rotating bolt. The rifle was developed by FN Herstal for the United States Special Operations Command, or SOCOM. This family of rifles consist of two main types. The SCAR-L, for “light”, is chambered in the 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge and the SCAR-H, for “heavy”, fires 7.62×51mm NATO.
I was lucky enough to fire one of these in Houston and I absolutely loved it. In battlegrounds they call this a modern assault rifle so let’s take a closer look at the stats. The scar l has a power rating of 37 and that is exactly the same as the power rating of the m16a4. The range is different the scar l loses this round because it only has a rating of 55, unfortunately it has the lowest effective range statistics of all assault rifles. The m16a4 clearly wins this round with a range of 62. It’s definitely a different story when you look at the stability, the scar l is the winner here with a stability rating of 31 compared to only 27. The scar l loses again if we compare the firing rate, it only has a rating of 71 and that is not enough to beat the m16a4’s rating of 81. The scar l also uses the mm cartridge and it also has a 30 round magazine. It can fire single shots or fully automatic. The muzzle mods are the same as the m16a4 with the flash hider, the suppressor and the compensator.
The magazines and the sights are also exactly the same but the scar l can also attach a vertical foregrip or an angled foregrip. You will need 2 headshots to kill and that is valid for both of these guns, it doesn’t matter which kind of helmet your enemy is using. If you happen to run into a guy who has the highest level of body armor then you will need 4 body shots to kill that guy. The same goes for a guy with level 2 armor but you will need one shot less if he is only wearing level 1 armor or nothing at all.
The bullet pattern of the scar l is pretty good, it goes almost straight up which makes it easier to control. The bullet pattern of the m16a4 in burst is great for the first 6 shots, but then the gun jumps up and it becomes very difficult to control after the 6th bullet. As you can see, one tap on your mouse in burt is awesome, the first 2 bullets will hit dead center and the last one still hits the ring of 9 points. In single fire the pattern is even better than the one of the scar l, the line is now almost perfectly straight. Just for info this is uncompensated fully automatic fire, multiple burst shots or multiple single shots, I just pressed the mouse button, I did not move my mouse to compensate for the recoil and as a result the m16a4 in burst was able to hit the target 7 times and 2 other shots were very close to the target. The scar l had 8 hits with 2 being very close but the m16a4 in single fire was even better, with 9 shots on target and 2 being very close.
To summarize, the SCAR L has better statistics for stability and it also wins the bullet pattern contest against the m16a4 in burst but it loses against the same gun in single fire. The m16a4 has a higher firing rate and it has better stats for range. Now that you know everything about these 2 guns, I’m sure that you will be able to select the right gun for your playstyle and for that chicken dinner.
