There will be a total of seven new ARs making an appearance in Warzone Pacific, each possessing a range of characteristics that can allow players to excel in those competitive mid-range engagements.

The STG 44 has been the standout performer in multiplayer and with Warzone Pacific using exactly the same engine, it's highly likely that it will slot into the early metagame for Season 1. Armed with a strong rate of fire and high levels of control, the STG can thrive in those mid-range duels against the likes of the AMAX and the EM2.
