Decided recently to pick up the SAR-21

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I decided to pick up the SAR-21 as a ranged option for Assault since I was sick of not being able to contest people at distances outside of 30 meters. I'm wishing I'd picked it up in some sort of meaningful way earlier on because holy hell, it's an absolute powerhouse. It's killing as fast as the SCAR-H's midrange at like 50 meters.

I would like to kill a bit faster in CQC but the ranged performance is still incredible enough to where it doesn't bother me very much. Is there anything else really comparable to the SAR-21 in terms of ranged ability? All I can think of would be DMRs but those aren't anywhere near as fun to use as the SAR.

AR160 - clear easymode rifle but it's fun and have good reload
Aug A3 - AR160 with more recoil but slightly more accurate, bad reload tho
If you are good in clicking then I strongly recommend AK12 in burst, it's normally 650rpm so it's very similar to SAR-21 but it's buffed to 750rpm when pressing the V key, it will kill faster in CQC and at range.
AN-94 is the same story - it's more accurate but slower shooting(705rpm), the accuracy you gain isn't really relevant comparing it to AK12, both rifles are accurate enough
And support have the RPK12 - it's upgraded SAR-21 with 60 rounds in magazine

I have recently started using SAR-21 and, while it does have a slower TTK than AEK or Famas, the accuracy/recoil is so easy that you can constantly headshot.

Medium range shooting is very easy, and you can go for headshots most of the time - which cuts down the TTK in half cause headshot is double damage.

Very reliable and dependable.

The Famas is the absolute best mid range weapon I think, no comparison with the others.

Again, do not reply on threads that have been inactive for month(s), were not popular in the first place and you do not have anything very constructive to add.
