History Edit

The G36C is a carbine designed by the German company, Heckler & Koch. Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the G36 was initially made as a replacement for the G3 rifle. This particular variant, the G36C (Compact) is the shortest and lightest iteration of the G36 platform. The weapons platform was adopted as the standard issue firearm of the Bundeswehr in 1997. Since then, the G36 has become an iconic weapon, adopted by several European Militaries and Law Enforcement agencies, in countries such as France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Belgium. The compact variant is most widely used by special forces, such as the SAS and SWAT.

Gameplay Style Edit

The G36C is a very capable weapon in-game. It is able to handle close and long range with respectable ease. In close range, it makes good use of its higher fire-rate, while at longer ranges, it benefits greatly from its ability to use an 8x scope and extended barrel. Of all the weapons currently in-game, it is the closest thing available to a DMR. It has a wonderful balance of long range, variety of accessories, high fire-rate, yet very controllable recoil. The only thing to offset these impressive statistics is that the weapon has the lowest damage of all other weapons in the Rifle category, and its comparatively high price. In spite of those few downsides, many would consider it to be one of the top 3 primary weapons in-game. Any player would be able to use it to great effect, assuming they're able to afford this high quality carbine.

Pros:

  • Full/semi automatic capability
  • Can have all optics (including 8x scope)
  • Good movement speed
  • Good customization options
  • Great bullet velocity 
  • Compatible with extended mags

Cons:

  • Below average damage
  • Second most expensive weapon in its category
  • Lowest range in its category
