The Combat Rifle in use.

The Combat Rifle is a Primary weapon introduced in the early updates.


This weapon is based on the real-life M16A3 with an added scope resembling an ACOG scope and with an under-barrel bayonet. The color is also a snow camouflage, with a tint of blue.


It has decent damage, a great rate of fire, good capacity, and very good mobility for levels under 12.


  • The weapon has a high bullet spread. Fire in bursts or use scope for maximum accuracy to pick off distant enemies.
  • Aim for the head to get headshots and double the damage.
  • If at close range, spraying bullets has a high rate of fire. Charge at opponents while firing continuously to maximize effectiveness.
    • However, take note that this weapon has a considerably high recoil.
  • The high spread of full auto can help when attacking groups of enemies or mobile opponents. Be sure to use it when the situation calls for it.
  • Use the scope to take out players far away, as the scope reduces recoil


  • Attack these users at mid-range, where the user is weakest. Be sure to keep a distance and strafe to avoid this weapon's high rate of fire while trading fire.
  • Pickoff its users from long ranges. However, they can shoot back using the scope, so take cover once they notice you.
  • If all else fails, ambushing the user is always a good option.



Guerilla themed.

Weapon setups

Bring an accurate weapon due to its rather high spread.

  • This is a good starter weapon since it offers a decent amount of versatility. Bring an area damage weapon for medium, such as the Bass Cannon (for tight spaces) combat. A Backup if you run out of ammo, such as the Photon Pistol, a fast melee for increased mobility (such as the Katana), and any good sniper for long ranges.
