Assault Rifles

I have had Battlefield for exactly one week now.

still relatively new to the game
I have over 1000 kills with the AK-12.

I am absolutely terrified to switch to a new rifle.



What is the best Assault Rifle in the game?


I have unlocked all the others.

Bro, The easiest transition for you would probably be the FAMAS with HBar and ACOG. You won't regret making the change.

The question is fundamentally flawed, as gun balance in BF4 is such that no assault rifle, or any weapon at all, can be fairly deemed the 'best.' All have strengths and weaknesses that cater towards a certain niche among the wide-ranging circumstances one can encounter, and that make them more amenable to certain play styles.

You will find, as a general rule, that you trade TTK for precision, either in terms of recoil, spread, or both. That said, the AK-12 (particularly in burst mode) is among those guns with the most favorably balanced qualities. The QBZ-95-1 is of a similar vein, while guns with lower fire rates, such as the CZ805 and the SAR-21, err on the side of accuracy and ease of use. The ACE-23, the L85, and the M416 are also reasonably well-balanced in this sense as well, but make sacrifices to accuracy in order to achieve superior rates of fire.

The outliers are the FAMAS, AEK-971, and SCAR-H, which are all of high power but cannot compete at range.

You should keep using the AK12, using the AK12 makes you a hipster.

The Problem with the Term "the Best" is that even if you go through the data here on Symthic, you still need to control the recoil yourself.

So if you can control the recoil from for example the AEK better than from the QBZ95, then my advice would be to go with the qbz.

Meaning the only way to tell which weapon is the best (for you) is to try it out yourself. The only recommendations i can give you is Ace23 and the above mentioned AEK (as im used to those guns)

The "best" assault rifle really depends on your playstyle. Do you prefer staying a good distance away from your targets, do you prefer getting in their faces and mowing them down, or do you prefer versatility?

I'm personally leaning towards the ACE now as it looks cool (my opinion; Israeli guns have always fascinated me for some reason) and it's a jack-of-all-trades gun, much like the M416.

I think that the QBZ-95-1 is the best. It is versatile, but somewhat siding towards long range, and it had easy to control recoil.

Not to mention platform.

The SAR-21 is a hero on consoles, but a joke on PC.
