I like it along with the regular carbine. They both look and perform nicely.

It looks cool, it shoots bullets that kills people like any other weapon too.

I don't see why I shouldn't use it.

Special carbine is the second best rifle. Bullpup and advanced are tied at short range, special is better than advanced at long range. The AK is the worst and carbine is the second worst.

all assault rifles and MG's have the exact same range, the in game weapon stats are wrong.


the special carbine has the same stats as the regular carbine, but it can be bought from the very start of the game. was my very first purchase in GTAO, should be everyone's first purchase IMO.

All guns have the same range. Range stat tells about lock on range in aa lobbies and zoom level in certain degree.

A better contest is Advanced or Bullpup. I'm not sure I can figure out which is better in that pair. I know which one is worst, though.


Assault Rifle < Special Carbine < Carbine < Advanced/Bullpup


Other than it's sound, which is better than everything except the Assault Rifle, the Special Carbine isn't very special.  And you probably stuck a silencer on it, anyways.

Yeah, I don't really care for that particular weapon myself. I just use the Carbine Rifle most of the time.

In general all of the weapons have a role in your inventorey as while the differences are slight they are there. For example a few my weapon setups are sitting at and used for:


Advanaced Rifle: No Silencer. This is my long range non silenced rifle. The special carbine may show higher accuracey on the silly bar stat but anyone who uses the advanced rifle a lot knows that accuracey bar only reffers to sustained (Spray n pray), maintaining very short bursts and having the extra lock range it is far superior living there over the special carbines better "Accuracey". Its rate of fire helps at very close range and quickly cycling targets while 2x bursting and such things.


Special Carbine: No silencer, I even drive to ammunation before entering the bank on Pacific Standard to remove it. I use it for mid to close range raw dammage or inside buildings or while as a passenger in a vehicle driven by somone who is not really trying to help shooter passengers like out the back of a crazy imprecise burrito driver. WIth a good driver I will stay with the advanced rifle. If not MG's


Carbine: With silencer. It is my gereral purpose silenced rifle. Used as I would the Advaced rifle but wanting a silenced weapon.


Bullpup: With silencer. I use this when I would normally use the special carbine but want a silenced weapon or for pure spray and pray. This is my less used Rifle.


AP pistol: No Silencer, Go to driving weapon


Micro SMG: With silencer, for when you want a silencer driving or want to avoid blowing something up when chasing if it is already overly dammaged.


There is not completley comprehensive in variables or reasoning but it gives you an idea on how to setup your own weapons for your preferance.

personally it doesn't matter what weapon you use. as long as it works for you. like some one said before. its riddled with placebo effect. if you float with it better on your boat, then thats the one for you.

i prefer to use weak weapons(half to unlock tints. half to gain skill) so if i ever need to, i can pull out op weapons of each category, and exploit their op ness to levels -that people who don't own people with the "Assault" Riffle, or pump shotgun like i usually do- they (most likely) never could. unless i need a lil boost.
