Enforcer Class Weapons

1) Shotguns

870-P

SPAS-12
SPAS-12
Criminals rejoice, because you’ve got the SPAS-12 on your side. This semi-automatic weapon means you don’t have to operate the pump between shots, meaning faster takedowns. It has the highest capacity, but suffers in range compared to other shotguns.

Double-Barrel Shotgun
Double-Barrel Shotgun
The trouble with this cross-faction weapon is that you can’t use most of the attachments available because of its lack of rails. You get the Iron Sights as standard and can add a Stock for reduced recoil too. But, it does have a 100 damage rating.

HCAR
Remember the BAR from the WWII era? Well the HCAR is a modern version of that and uses high-powered .30-06 rounds. That means heavy damage, but you’ll have to contend with a lot of recoil.

SA58-OSW
SA-58 OSW
This is a modern take on a classic battle rifle, offering more ammo per clip than any other. Available to the Criminal Enforcers, the SA-58 OSW has a low fire rate, but it’s very powerful – taking out enemies in three or four shots when you’re lucky.

HK51
Another battle rifle that’s good at close quarters, but really suffers from some serious recoil issues. We suggest kitting it out with a Stock to reduce the recoil and it works well with a Muzzle Brake too.

Professional Class Weapons

1) Sniper Rifles

Scout Elite
Scout Elite

This sniper rifle is the basic option for both cops and criminals of the Professional Class. It’s a bolt-action rifle that’s great for quick shooting. The Scout Elite might not have the highest damage, but because of its bolt-action you can reload faster, making it superb for close-range despite it being a sniper rifle.

.300 Knockout
.300 Knockout
This is a rather unusual sniper rifle, as it’s internally suppressed, but that means you won’t ever be able to remove the silencer. But since the suppressor is combined with high damage and super-effective long-range accuracy, you won’t mind that they don’t hear you coming.
