The SWAT Rifle in use.

The Swat Rifle (formerly known as the "Elite Rifle") is a Primary weapon introduced in the early updates of Pixel Gun 3D.


It sports a forest digital camo and has the distinct top rail of the real-life FAMAS. It has a gray pistol grip and its barrel looks like stainless steel. Its body is also its stock, as with all bullpup rifles and shotguns.


It is a rifle with a high rate of fire.


  • It is very accurate and thus is good when picking off enemies at long range due to its precision and can eliminate unarmored opponents in a few shots. This advantage can allow you to eliminate even snipers, albeit with only 4X Zoom.
  • This can prove helpful when against an opponents armed with a shotgun.
  • If particularly gifted in the ways of accuracy, the Swat Rifle Up2 can become a fearsome long-range weapon, allowing the user to carry a more situational weapon in the Special slot such as the High Voltage.
  • It is useful for finishing off an enemy doing uncommon moving patterns.
  • This can be a good makeshift sniper weapon due to its scope and high firing rate. It can take out any very mobile distant enemies or beyond that a basic sniper rifle that can take out.
  • It can be used to heavily damage on some heavily armored players or picking weakened enemies off.
  • Because of the little recoil and sound it makes, it is very ideal for assassinating someone in place of a loud sniper rifle.
  • Maximize this weapon's upgrade to your level (if you are quite high), so as for it to be more useful in higher levels.


  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Area damage weapons easily pick off its users.
  • Its low damage is not that much of a threat to an armored and healthy player. So watch out for its users when severely injured.
    • Also, its low damage indicates of where the user is.
    • However, this is no longer the case as of the newer updates wherein all weapons (except Default ones) can be reached to your maximum level). So, be aware of its users.
  • Users can use this as a makeshift sniper weapon due to its scope. So take them out with the same weapon or a reliable sniper weapon to take them out quickly before they can kill or heavily damages you.
  • Any one shot kill weapons can easily do a trick.

Weapon Setups

As its ammo is easy to deplete, carry a much more mobile weapon to get into ammo pickups quickly.


  • It was previously called the "Elite Rifle".
  • The Swat Rifle is based on the real-life French FAMAS F1 assault rifle.
  • It is placed after the AK-48 and the Combat Rifle in the Armory, suggesting a rivalry of sorts, because they are all based on very well known guns - FAMAS F1, AK-47, and M16A3.
  • It is one of the few weapons that changes its model as it upgrades.
  • The firing sound is very similar to the Marksman's firing noise.
  • As of 9.0.0, the Swat Rifle has a suppressor on its world model but its firing noise shows that it still fires if it wasn't suppressed.
  • This is one of the most accurate Primary weapons alongside the Casanova and Crystal Laser Cannon. It is so accurate that its crosshairs expand in a minuscule sense, meaning that it retains near-perfect accuracy when the fire button is held down.
  • It was removed in the 12.5.0 update, but it was re-added in the 12.5.3 update, likely due to the game system was reverted.
