Battlefield 3 Acr Assignment


The Bushmaster ACR (Adaptive Combat Rifle), previously known as the Magpul Masada before Bushmaster and Remington took over production, is an assault rifle developed initially and proposed for the future replacement of the M16 and M4 family of assault rifles. The ACR uses the standard 5.56x45mm NATO round but is also intended to be modifiable to employ the 6.5 Grendel, 6.8mm Remington SPC, .308 Winchester and the Russian 7.62x39mm M43 rounds. Similar to other weapons such as the M416 and the SCAR family of rifles, it uses a piston instead of the direct impingement of the M4/M16 series of weapons.

In the Battlefield series, the ACR is referred to as the ACW-R (Adaptive Combat Weapon - Rifle). It fires the 6.5x39mm Grendel round in Battlefield 3 and 5.56x45mm NATO in all other appearances.

"This adaptive combat rifle features a number of recent rifle designs and acts as a lightweight, feature heavy, rifle platform. Using the modern, recoil-reducing “Grendel” round, as well as being built to endure rough weather conditions and capable of utilizing standard STANAG magazines, this rifle is equipped to fill many of the roles required by both military and law enforcement uses."

The ACW-R is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters expansion and is unlocked upon the completion of the Done Fixing assignment. It was first seen in the Close Quarters Gameplay Premiere trailer.

The ACW-R is optimized for medium to long range combat, similar to the SCAR-H, with the ACW-R featuring a very controllable and consistent recoil. It is generally weaker than other carbines in close quarters, this is because of the lower damage up close, requiring 5 rather than 4 shots to kill.

This low maximum damage is fully compensated by the high minimum damage of 16.7, causing long range performance to be somewhat comparable to the AS VAL. The 850 RPM fire rate does somewhat compensate for the low damage, but has a larger effect on the long range performance. The high fire rate and minimum damage combined with good accuracy allow for very quick long range kills.

Battlefield Premium members may equip the Tactical Camo as well as the Digital Woodland Camo upon the completion of the ACW-R Specialist assignment.


Not to be confused with the SAR-21

The Israeli Weapons Industries (IWI) MTAR-21, or Micro Tavor, also designated as the X-95, is a standalone military weapon used for close quarters combat.

The weapon is renowned around the world for its efficiency in close quarters combat and its ability to use a variety of munitions. It is currently operated as the Micro-Tavor in the IDF and the Zittara in the Indian Military.

"This bullpup carbine is the ultra-compact version of the Israeli army standard TAR-21 rifle. It features supreme ergonomics and handling due to its 590 mm (23.2 in) length and is intended for use in tighter environments where standard length rifles become cumbersome. As of 2009, it is destined to become the standard rifle of the IDF, and is also seeing success internationally as part of security and police forces."

The MTAR-21 is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters expansion and is unlocked upon the completion of the My Own Terminator assignment. It was first seen in the killfeed of the Donya Fortress Gameplay trailer.

The weapon is more suited to very close range engagements, with the highest rate of fire of all the carbines. It suffers from considerable recoil and low damage at range, as well as poor accuracy, limiting its ability to perform at medium ranges. It is very effective as a hipfire weapon at closer ranges, especially if using a laser sight, killing in four shots to the average PDW's five shots. However, it must be noted the longest reload time of any available carbine at 3 seconds if reloaded with a bullet chambered, meaning that players must be highly aware of their surroundings while using this weapon.

Also, it has the second highest bullet velocity of any carbine (the M4A1 Carbine having the highest), although the high recoil and poor accuracy prevent it from being effective at long ranges.

Battlefield Premium members may equip the Airman or Woodland Oak camouflages upon the completion of the MTAR-21 Specialist assignment.
