The '''SCARMK17''' (Special Forces Combat Assault Rifle, Mark 17) is the tier three weapon designed for the [[Commando]] class. Compared to its predecessors (the [[Bullpup]] and the [[AK47]], it does suffer with a significantly smaller magazine size (maximum 25 bullets); however it deals a staggering amount of damage per shot, and can fire very rapidly. It appears in game with modular attachments of a red dot sight (making tackling tougher targets like [[Siren]]s and [[Husk]]s a lot easier) and a vertical front handle, with only the former having an effect on gameplay. The [[Achievement#Scar.27d|SCAR'd]] achievement is earned upon killing one thousand specimens with the weapon.

The SCARMK17 (Special Forces Combat Assault Rifle, Mark 17) is the tier three weapon designed for the Commando class. Compared to its predecessors (the Bullpup and the AK47, it does suffer with a significantly smaller magazine size (maximum 25 rounds); however it deals a staggering amount of damage per shot, and can fire very rapidly. It appears in game with modular attachments of a red dot sight (making tackling tougher targets like Sirens and Husks a lot easier) and a vertical front handle, with only the former having an effect on gameplay.

  • Try to use your red dot sight as much as possible to maximise hit efficiency, so you can save on purchasing ammo.
  • Though headshots are always advised with all weapons, the SCAR's red dot sight makes it incredibly easy to headshot specimens who might be approaching you, even from a distance.
