The SCAR-L is a versatile assault rifle in Apocalypse Rising. It is effective at medium to long range, using a 5.56x45mm round, the same type used by the M4A1Patriot, and G36K. It is usually found on players more than on the map. It can be distinguished by its black body and some parts of it that are gray. Its sister weapon is the Mk 17 Battle Rifle.The SCAR-L is compatible with all attachments, so it can take optics, underbarrel, and barrel attachments. The iron sights on this weapon are really nice and accurate. It's a good all round weapon for bandits and heroes. Ammo magazines consist of 30, 50 or 100 round magazines. Ammo is quite common in military tents, fire stations and other places where military loot is available. It has a moderate recoil that is easy to control and is common as far as military weapons go. This is known to be better than the AK weapons, but the weakest of the 5.56 weapons (mainly due to its slow fire rate). It should be switched out with other 5.56 caliber weapons (unless you are particularly skilled with this firearm).


The Mk 16 Mod 0 was intended to replace the M4A1, the Mk 18 CQBR and the Mk 12 SPR currently in SOCOM service, before SOCOM decided to cancel the order for the Mk 16 Mod 0 (see below). The Mk 17 Mod 0 will replace the M14 and Mk 11 sniper rifles. However, the weapon will only supplement other weapons while issuing remains at the operator's decision. The weapon is currently being replaced with the SCAR-H Mark 17 Mod 0.
