— In-game description
Situations and Terrorist Hunt
The Remington GPC, also known as the R4, is an assault rifle derivative of the AR-15 assault rifle. The R4-C is a carbine variant of the original R4 assault rifle. The C in R4-C stands for Compact. The R4-C is a carbine assault rifle manufactured by Remington Arms that chambers the 5.56x45mm NATO round.
In-game, the R4-C is a fast firing assault rifle designed for close-to-mid range engagements, contrary to the quote above. It's high vertical recoil and rate of fire make this a difficult weapon to control without the appropriate attachments. A Vertical Grip will substantially reduce the recoil, while a Compensator will improve it further against the fast rate of fire. An Extended Barrel, while it does increase the recoil slightly, it does provide a better damage model for longer ranges on this particular gun.
- High rate of fire.
- Best at close-to-mid range engagements.
- High vertical recoil.
- Difficulty to control at longer ranges.
