The Special Operations Forces (SOF) Combat Assault Rifle, or SCAR, is a modular rifle made by FN Herstal (FNH) for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to satisfy the requirements of the SCAR competition. This family of rifles consist of two main types. The SCAR-L, for light, is chambered in the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge and the SCAR-H, for heavy, fires 7.62x51mm NATO. Both are available in Long Barrel and Close Quarters Combat variants.

The FN SCAR system completed low rate initial production testing in June 2007. After some delays, the first rifles began being issued to operational units in April 2009, and a battalion of the US 75th Ranger Regiment was the first large unit deployed into combat with 600 of the rifles in 2009. While purchases of the MK 16 SCAR-L variant by the US Special Operations Command have been canceled, US SOCOM will still buy the MK 17 SCAR-H variant and some subordinate Spec Ops commands are still looking to buy the MK 16 SCAR-L variant and/or keep the existing MK 16s they have already purchased.

The 40th DayEdit

In the game, the SCAR-L is a well-rounded assault rifle that has it's primary advantage in precision and handling. Combining those aspects with a high rate of fire make it one of the best weapons for putting many rounds into your opponent quickly. It is unlocked at chapter 3.
