  3. PSA: the red tracer SCAR provides a minor gameplay advantage

The tac laser it projects is a thin red one, and much less visible than the thick green laser.

It’s really not a huge deal. But you can count on websites and people complaining that it’s the start of “pay-to-win” with weapon variants slightly stronger than regular ones.

Overall the tracer rounds look sick though, definitely pick it up if you come across it.

Seeing as you unlock the red tac laser at a reasonable level on the SCAR - although memory fails to provide the exact level - I fail to see how anyone could even begin to cry PTW.

I did just treat myself for Xmas though, because the SCAR is my favourite weapon and I do like the blue tracer on the Kilo from the Nikto pack. Coloured tracer does look good, albeit pointless and akin to a big arrow pointing to my location.

Tac laser is usually green. This one is a faint red instead. The red travels thankfully aren’t as bad as the blue tracers. They only show once they hit something, instead of the entire trail being visible.

Most - if not all - ARs have the option to run the red tac laser that isn't visible to enemies.
Cheers for the info on the tracer though, about to go equip the blueprint and remove everything I don't want.

My SCAR came with a green 5mw laser, not the 1mw red one?

No no, I know guns have laser options, but they are:

1mw laser (red, not visible to enemies)
5mw laser (green, visible to enemies)
Tac laser (green, visible to enemies when aiming down sight)

The SCAR variant gives a Tac laser, so only visible when aiming down sight, but it’s a red tac laser that’s visible to enemies but only barely. It contains all the stat buffs as a regular very visible green tac laser.

Ah right, gotcha. I'll dive back in and have another look later. Had been to the pub last night so wasn't entirely at my best ;-)
