The automatic rifleman is the most reliable and accurate weapon when it comes to suppresing enemies and covering friendly infantry and it arguably has the most anti infantry firepower. In this guide I will provide a few tips how not to suck as the AR/MG. 1. Whenever your squad is moving make sure you are at the back of the line/formation. Whenever an enemy gets spotted you want to be further away from them to be able to use the deployed ar mode effectivelly. 2. Ar is best used as a stationary support weapon. If you engage or get engaged seek a good position from which you would be able to provide covering/suppresing fire. 3. If possible set up on higher ground to provide even more effective covering fire. Keep in mind that if you are able to cover alot of places you are visible from alot of places so make sure you have good cover because you will be a priority target for the enemy squad. 4. Whenever your squad is crossing a dangerous open area (for example a road) make sure to stay behind and cover your squad while they are crossing 5. AR can somewhat reliably engage light vehicles such as trucks boats jeeps and even the VN-3 (batmobile) or the british panther. I have successfully managed to destroy the forementioned vehicles with no LAT in my squad and the most damage was done by the AR. It takes around 200 small arms bullets to kill a vn3/panther so if your squad manages to ambush these vehicles you should be able to take them down without a lat kit. 6. Avoid going on rooftops. While being on a rooftop gives you excelent visibility of the surrounding areas you will be spotted from miles away and likely taken out before spotting the enemy. Keep in mind that these are just tips not hard rules that are never meant to be broken.
