It is a rifle with a high rate of fire.

Tips

  • It is good for ambushing the enemy.
  • Aim for the target's head to maximize damage.
  • It is effective for defending the flag in Capture The Flag.

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Area damage weapons easily pick off its users.
  • Its low damage is not that much of a threat to an armored and healthy player. So watch out for its users when severely injured.
    • Also, its low damage indicates of where the user is.

Weapon Setups

As its ammo is easy to deplete, carry a much more mobile weapon to get into ammo pickups quickly.

Trivia

  • It was previously called the "Elite Rifle".
  • The Swat Rifle is based on the real-life French FAMAS F1 assault rifle.
  • It is placed after the AK-48 and the Combat Rifle in the Armory, suggesting a rivalry of sorts, because they are all based on very well known guns - FAMAS F1, AK-47, and M16A3.
  • It is one of the few weapons that changes its model as it upgrades.
  • The firing sound is very similar to the Marksman's firing noise.
  • As of 9.0.0, the Swat Rifle has a suppressor on its world model but its firing noise shows that it still fires if it wasn't suppressed.
  • This is one of the most accurate Primary weapons alongside the Casanova and Crystal Laser Cannon. It is so accurate that its crosshairs expand in a minuscule sense, meaning that it retains near-perfect accuracy when the fire button is held down.
  • It was removed in the 12.5.0 update, but it was re-added in the 12.5.3 update, likely due to the game system was reverted.
