The carbine rifle was originally developed to supply military field team leaders with a smaller, more compact rifle so they could carry out other tasks while not having to lug around a full-sized battle rifle.


Carbine Rifle Classes are the go-to place to start upgrading your personal defense skills. A carbine is the best compromise between range and power. It's smaller form factor also allows quick follow-up shots and maneuverability in tighter quarters, such as a home or building.

  • Quick Target Acquisition
  • Point and Shoot Accurately
  • Weapon Controls Manipulation
  • Weapons Accessories Use
