SCAR-20

SCAR-20

The official SCAR-20 Description states:

The SCAR-20 is a semi-automatic sniper rifle that trades a high rate of fire and powerful long-distance damage for sluggish movement speed and big price tag.




 The SCAR automatic sniper rifle is a semi-automatic sniper rifle in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive that is exclusive to the Counter-Terrorists.

The FN SCAR-20 is a Belgium-made automatic sniper rifle chambered with 20 rounds of 7.62x51mm NATO. It is a long range designated marksman rifle equipped with a high power lens scope, and is a variant of the SCAR-H battle rifle. Overall, the CT’s automatic sniper has a high damage and rate of fire, as well as high accuracy, making it a weapon that is easy to use, but hard to master.

Despite these advantages, the SCAR-20 is rarely used in Competitive gameplay. Usually, the AWP is bought instead due to its higher damage per shot, better accuracy, and lower cost.




The Counter Terrorists’ auto sniper boasts high damage per shot and has low recoil. This allows users to spray bullets (even while using the scope).

However, when firing at or near the maximum rate of fire, this weapon becomes wildly inaccurate, especially at long range. Fire slower to land consecutive shots or go for a single headshot for maximum efficiency.

It also has very low accuracy while moving and combined with the weight and low rate of fire, submachine gun wielders can strafe and eliminate users with ease at close range.
