- "BOPE PARA-308 is a more compact version of the battle proven FAL with high stopping power."
— In-game description
The ParaFAL 7.62mm M964 A1 MD1 is a 7.62×51mm NATO battle rifle which is a lighter-weight modification of the 30-year-old Brazilian-licensed and built FN FAL. Existing FALs can be converted to the more modern ParaFAL specification by the Brazilian company IMBEL with a low-cost kit of parts. Amongst the changes is a shorter barrel, and replacement of aluminium by high-impact polymer parts.
In-game, and designated as the PARA-308, this primary is a rather strong assault rifle for its group. The PARA-308 is a powerhouse in the right hands, but it's held back by its mediocre rate of fire, making it inadvisable to engage close-range firefights with weapons with faster rates of fire. Using a Vertical Grip and a Flash Hider allows it to function better at longer ranges.
