  • The AS-VAL is a suppressed marksman's rifle with a internal silencer, although it would initially appear to be an assault rifle. It is very effective at all ranges, gaining plating from kills.

    In Arena, it can be purchased for Assassin as a Series 5 weapon.

    The abbreviation for this weapon is 'VAL.'

    • Shorter detection radius

    Disadvantages:

    • Relatively low max ammo for an assault rifle type weapon
    • Very low ammo gain
    • Builds up heat quickly

    Notes/Tips[]

    • Given its reduced detection range and ability to gain plating on kills, the AS VAL is a very powerful weapon for Hyper Adrenaline mode. Additionally, the drastically increased damage output will help conserve ammo, allowing the weapon to be used more frequently.
    • Also counts as a Marksman weapon for class bonuses

    Trivia[]

    • Based off of the real-life AS Val, which is a Russian-made special purpose assault rifle, with an integral suppressor and custom subsonic ammunition, to ensure it makes as little noise as possible.
