    The SCAR PDW is the PDW variant of the SCAR-L, however it is classified as a Carbine ingame. Weird right?
    If the FAL PARA Shorty, Krinkov and G36C are in PDW's, why not the SCAR PDW?
    This gun is unlocked at Rank 32!

    The SCAR PDW despite its low RPM is much stronger up close than the SCAR-L, It can 3 hit kill, but it only 6 hit kills at long range.
    Also, the SCAR PDW has a slightly better fire rate than the SCAR-L and SCAR-H firing at 650 RPM!
    Another advantage is the better hipfire stability and slightly faster reload.
    But it does have more aiming recoil, some of it is horizontal too, and that is the bad recoil we do not want, So a Compensator will be recommended to fight that.

    The SCAR PDW has the 2nd best Suppression in the Carbine catagory only being beaten by the Jury.

    The iron sights are the same as the entire SCAR series, bad iron sights, should be replaced as soon as possible.


    .223 Rem

    This gun has a special attribute to the .223 Rem ammo attachment.
    It still has the stats of the normal .223 Rem but it is combined with the stats of an Extended Magazine aswell!

    (+) Magazine capacity increased to 40!
    (+) Reduced recoil!
    (-) Decreased damage to 34.19 -> 17.1!
    (-) Increased reload duration!
    (-) Decreased aim speed!
    (-) Reduced muzzle velocity!

    So if you really want that extended magazine, keep in mind of the cons here, especially the damage and reload time, but you do get lower recoil for it!


    9mm Conv.

    The SCAR PDW has access to the 9mm Conversion.
    While it didn't do much to the SCAR-L, On this gun it actually gives you a 50 round Drum Magazine, And it still reloads as fast as normal!

    (+) Decreased recoil.
    (+) Increases magazine capacity to 50!
    (+) Increases ammo reserve to 150!
    (+) Increases RPM to 750!
    (+) Increases hipfire stability!
    (-) Slight decrease in minimum range.
    (-) Decreased muzzle velocity.
    (-) Decreased penetration depth.
    (-) Decreased suppression.
    (-) Damage reduced to 30 -> 18!

    Use this conversion to turn your SCAR PDW into a true PDW, Melt groups players up close!


    7.62X51 Conv.

    Turns your SCAR PDW into the SCAR-H PDW now firing 7.62x51mm NATO!
    This is your carbine battle rifle here!

    (+) Increases damage to 45.5 -> 22.
    (+) Increases torso multiplier to x1.1. (Enough to 2 hit torso kill close range)
    (+) Increases minimum range.
    (+) Increases penetration depth.
    (+) Increases suppression.
    (-) Increased overall recoil significantly!
    (-) Halved maximum range.
    (-) Decreases RPM to 625 RPM.
    (-) Decreases muzzle velocity.
    (-) Increases reload duration.
    (-) Decreases magazine capacity to 20.
    (-) Decreases aim speed.


    The SCAR PDW has a couple of unique attachments, being the Long Barrel, Retract Stock, Remove Stock, Full Stock, 9mm Conv and 7.62X51 Conv!
    The PM II Scope is free to use on this weapon!

    If you want a loadout, I recommend you this:

    • DDHB Reflex
    • Compensator
    • Stubby Grip
    • Full Stock
    • Default

    If you wish for lower recoil, Use .223 Rem as ammo, it has no significant loss in damage on this weapon.
    If you are going to use 9mm Conv., Use the Angled Grip instead of the Stubby Grip.
    If you are going to use 7.62X51 Conv., Use the Muzzle Brake instead of the Compensator because of that strong vertical recoil, the Compensator will only make it worse.


    • In real life, the SCAR PDW is very easy to jam due to not having enough pressure from the round with the shortened barrel and gas stroke.

    My opinion on this gun

    My least favorite Belgian weapon.

    Never have I been able to use it to its full potentional, however that will come to a change once I finally unlock the 9mm and 7.62 Conversions.
    But for now, I am not really impressed with this weapon.

    I rate this gun 7/10
