Strategy

Tips

  • This primary is a great all round weapon. Its scope is accurate and has low recoil, it performs great in all ranges, has a fast reload, and is extremely powerful. Recommended to counter primary or backup users, heavies from long range, and perhaps snipers sometimes. It can even outrun most high mobility melees due to its extremely high mobility (90). It has a hidden silent attribute which allows you to go unnoticed, flank, and ambush. The critical damage is very useful for quickening kill times.
  • As it has a flip-clip magazine, it has a rather fast reload time. But as always, you should only reload when you know you are safe.
  • The Critical Damage attribute is useful for dealing additional damage to affected enemies.

Counters

  • This weapon is hard to counter due to its power in any situation. However some tips are listed below:
  • Attack its user(s) from an extremely long range using a Sniper weapon. But be wary as this weapon performs well in long range and the kill time is rapid.
  • Use an Area Damage weapon to disorient its user(s).
  • Strafe around to make it harder for the user(s) to hit you.
  • Outrun the enemy using a high mobility weapon (This is quite hard as you need 1 of 3 100 mobility weapons).

Trivia

  • Like the Eliminator Z2, the Advanced Scout Rifle is based on the Heckler and Koch HK416 with an M320 Grenade Launcher Module.
  • Like under-barrel attachments on numerous guns, the grenade launcher is purely cosmetic, holding no functionality, mostly for balancing and convenience over complexity in controls.
  • It uses a holographic sight that has a 4x magnification factor, while in reality, holographic sights do not zoom in.
  • For an unknown reason, the color of the skin was changed to purple. This is also the same with the Harsh Punisher, Manual Inferno, Headhunter Pistols and the Offensive Rocket System.
