The primary weapon is the gun you will be using the most. There are several types of primary weapons. This includes Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, Machine Guns, and Sniper Rifles. The names of the manufacturers or designers are not in-game (probably to avoid affiliation with the companies), but are included here for factual interest.

Assault rifles are the most popular weapon type in Combat Arms. They have well-balanced statistics, and can be used a variety of situations. Assault rifles have an approximate maximum range of 100 metres, which can be measured using the ACOG TA1 Scope. Attempting to shoot any further will see your bullets disappear.

CA M16A3.jpg This gun isn't quite on par with the others because it is the default gun and costs no GP to maintain. It has a high rate of fire and fair recoil, but its damage is quite low. The M16 is the only assault rifle besides the SG550 (and then only at range) that kills in more than four shots.

Still, the M16 isn't a totally horrible gun, and you can still get kills with it if you are poor and don't have the GP to rent something better. The M16 can be fitted with all Modifications.

It is recommended that you do not attach a silencer, because it will cause the M16A3 to be a borderline 5-6 hit kill.

CA ar m4a1.jpg The Colt M4 carbine and its variants are shorter versions of the venerable M16. The main reason why some people enjoy using the M4A1 is because of its ridiculously low recoil. Your crosshair will go up about a millimeter, and then rock side to side at a barely noticeable strength. The side recoil is completely eliminated if you attach and use a scope.

The low recoil is balanced by relatively weak damage, although it still gives a four-shot kill. The M4A1 can be attached with all Modifications.

CA ar k2.jpg Not a commonly seen gun, the K2 sports a high rate of fire. It is also very accurate, beaten in the stat only by the AK47 and G36E.

The interesting thing about the K2 is that it can fire in all three modes: single shots (semi-automatic), bursts, and automatic. While most people that use the K2 will set it to Auto, using Semi-Auto or Burst will can be very ammo-conserving and powerful. Using single fire brings out the accuracy and makes the recoil meaningless allowing extremely accurate shots that serves as a perfect anti-sniper purpose.

CA ar mk16 scar l.jpg Similar to the M4A1, this yellow and slightly strange looking gun is low on recoil. It has hardly any up recoil, but it does have quite noticeable side recoil. It cannot be used to spray-snipe at far range like the M4A1 can, because of the relatively hefty side recoil (alternates left and right quickly, making it harder to aim). It is a weak four shot kill, only ever so slightly stronger than the M4A1, but every other stat is a fair balance.

This is also one of the few guns capable of burst fire. The SCAR-L can be fitted with all mods. Adding a scope will not negate its side recoil.

CA ar m416.jpg This very expensive rifle is almost the same thing as an M4A1 CQBR, except that you can just buy it with GP rather than try Supply Case after Supply Case. It has almost non-existent recoil, has a good rate of fire, it's best is medium to medium-long range distances, and is a borderline 4-5 hit kill. You will be able to halfway snipe, but with little effectiveness at extreme distances.

CA ar g36e.jpg This deals the strongest four-hit kill and has very high accuracy. Like the AK47, the G36E lacks in portability. The strange recoil pattern causes the gun to kick everywhere, making it difficult to handle.

The G36E costs an extra 150 GP than the other assault rifles because it has a built-in scope. This scope has the range of a sniper rifle, which makes the G36E also useful for long-range sniping. When using the gun in this manner, you must fire single shots, or else the recoil makes it useless. The G36E can accommodate all modifications except new scopes.

CA ar ak 47.jpg This is the second strongest assault rifle. Capable of a three-hit kill, it is deadly in the hands of a skilled user. To add to the damage, the AK47 also features the second highest accuracy of all Assault Rifles.

The AK47's damage and accuracy is counterbalanced by bad statistics in many other areas. The recoil is very strong and can get out of hand (bursting instead of spraying helps to control it), the rate of fire is slow, the crosshair gets absolutely huge, and its not very portable.

The AK-47 is now purchasable at the Black Market for a permanent usage period. This permanently replaces the M16A3.

CA ar ak 74u.jpg A toned-down, or CQB version of the AK47. The damage is reduced from a 3-hit kill to a strong 4-hit kill. Recoil is reduced and goes slightly more "everywhere", and the crosshair can still get quite big. The gun also fires with a very distinct and loud crashing sound, so it is hard to be stealthy without a silencer.

Overall, the AK74U is a very balanced combination of all statistics. It can be fitted with all modifications.

CA ar famas.jpg This bullpup model gun is the weakest four-shot kill. To compensate for the power, the FAMAS features high accuracy, fair recoil, and the second highest firing rate out of all the assault rifles.

The FAMAS fires with an extremely distinctive popping sound that alerts skilled players that you're using it. The recoil of the FAMAS when scoped is unique in the fact that it sways noticeably from side to side as it moves up. Although annoying, experienced players will shoot in bursts to take out targets at a medium to long range. The crosshairs when firing without a scope hardly expand due to the small spread of the bullets, allowing great hip fire accuracy.

CA ar sg550.jpg This assault rifle features great accuracy, a high rate of fire, and literally insignificant recoil. The crosshair doesn't get very big either. However, it is a weak four shot kill at maximum, and any distance makes it a five hit kill.

The main downside of the SG550 is its small clip and limited ammo. The gun is one of the least portable assault rifle, so don't expect to be getting anywhere quickly. It is also very expensive.

This gun is rarely seen, because its downsides cause many people to favor the stronger "low end" assault rifles, such as the M4A1, FN SCAR, and M416.

CA ar aug a1.jpg The AUG-A1 is a four-shot kill and has a very high rate of fire for an assault rifle. The AUG is similar to the G36E in that it also costs an extra 150 GP because it comes with an attached scope, and this scope has the range of a sniper rifle. The AUG also recoils slightly more everywhere than it does up. Also worth mentioning is that the AUG is the fastest reloading assault rifle.

Because the AUG isn't as accurate as the G36E, the scope isn't as good for sniping as it is for medium range combat. When using the scope and single-shotting, the strong recoil is negated and it will only kick straight up, making the AUG's scope easy to manage. The AUG is capable of burst fire and can be fitted with a suppressor or magazine mod.

CA ar m14.jpg The M14 assault rifle isn't actually an assault rifle, it's a battle rifle, which is a hybrid of a sniper and an assault rifle. Although still a three shot kill, any damage more than 2 to the target (or a light vesting target) will result in a 2 shot kill. It is also very accurate. However, it fires very slowly, making this gun a great way to get yourself killed in close combat.

The M14 can fire on automatic or semi-auto. The automatic mode will cause the gun to have strong recoil every shot without a scope. Using the semi-auto mode completely eliminates the recoil, keeps the crosshair in check, making this gun perfect for mid-range combat or as a sniper substitute. Using a scope without a S1 suppressor will eliminate the diagonal recoil and the almost non-existent side recoil. However, the rate of fire is so slow that the recoil doesn't even affect your aiming much. When sustaining fire, both are deadly accurate. This gun's uniqueness comes with a high price.

As of the October 28, 2009 patch, the fire rate of the M14 has been increased, making the weapon less underpowered.
