SMR Assault Rifle – Black Ops 2 Preview
Semi-automatic assault rifle. Highest damage per round in class.
Rate of Fire: Like in previous games, this semi-automatic assault rifle will probably be capped at 625 RPM.
Recoil: With the high damage and semi-automatic fire, the SMR will probably have the highest recoil out of the assault rifles. However, this still may be on par of less than the recoil on the sniper rifles.
Damage: With the highest damage out of any assault rifle (57 base and 43 at range), this weapon definitely packs a punch.
Range: The range is also top notch on this weapon as is expected with a semi-automatic assault rifle.
Accuracy: The accuracy is slightly less than the SA-58, but still better than most other assault rifles.
Magazine Size: The SMR will probably have a moderately small clip of 20 rounds with a 30 rounds extended mag.
Reload Speed: Past semi-automatic weapons such as FN FAL have had reload speeds of around 2.7 seconds.
Usage and Notes: There is no direct real world equivalent to the SMR although there are similarities between it and the L86 LSW and TAR21. This weapon is the clear winner in terms of damage and range, but it will be interesting to see if it can stack up against sniper rifles or even the burst fire assault rifles in real in game scenarios.
