The Combat Rifle is a Primary Receiver available in Blacklight: Retribution.

Weapon Overview Edit

Featuring a long effective range and high damage, the Combat Rifle is the counterpart of the similarly-designed Bolt-Action Rifle. Behaving like a cross-between the Assault Rifle and the Bolt-Action Rifle, the Combat Rifle is best employed in mid-to-long range engagements.

Like the Bolt-Action Rifle, it boasts high accuracy and damage with each shot. However, the Combat Rifle does have a much lower degree of recoil and higher ammo count, at the expense of reduced damage and hip fire spread. Due to these factors, the Combat Rifle is quite effective out to medium ranges, or even farther if using high zoom scopes.

Tactics Edit

Unlike the Bolt-Action, the Combat Rifle is capable of semi-automatic fire. It is highly recommended that players learn how to control their rate of fire when facing hostiles at varying ranges; single shots for distant enemies, and rapid, controlled bursts for closer foes. Take up a designated marksman's role as often as possible, and act as long-range support for your more versatile, Assault Rifle using teammates.

Although it is a deadly weapon in its own right, it is disadvantageous to use in close quarters engagements, unless the player can get several lucky shots off. Keep enemies at a distance when possible, and be prepared to switch to your secondary receiver just in case.

Ammunition Edit

There are 5 different magazine types for the Combat Rifle. For an overview, see Combat Rifle Mags.

Price Edit

Premade Variants Edit

These premade versions of the Combat Rifle were purchasable as stand-alone weapons in the Marketplace on the PC before the Parity Patch was released.

Trivia Edit

  • The Combat Rifle seems to be heavily influenced by modern-day Battle Rifles such as the Belgian FN FAL, the German G3 and the American M14 rifle. These weapons typically fired full caliber ammunition as opposed to the intermediate rounds fired by later Assault Rifles.
  • Aesthetically, the Combat Rifle does closely resemble the H&K SL8, a semi-automatic, civilian version of the Heckler & Koch G36, the current service rifle of the German Bundeswehr.
