The '''MAS-44''' prototype French semi-automatic rifle and was designed and manufactured by the MAS arms factory. The prototype itself evolved from the MAS-38/39 and MAS-40 rifles and had several variants such as the 44A, 44B, and 44C. Although 50,000 rifles were order in January 1945, only 6,200 rifles were delivered causing the rifle to see limited use during [[World War II]]. An updated variant, the '''MAS-49'' was adopted by the French Army in July 1949 to replace the countries older bolt-action rifles.

"The Modèle 44 was a French secret so well-kept from the German Army that it barely survived. Samples ended up in the hands of partisans. It didn't enter mass production until after the war."

— In-game description


The MAS 44 is a weapon featured in Battlefield V. It was introduced in the second Tides of War chapter, Lightning Strikes and could be unlocked for the Assault kit by completing the week two challenges. It is currently available for purchase in The Company for 1,700Company Coins Logo BFV.

The MAS 44 is similar in several ways to the array of other semi-automatic rifles in its class due to its initial characteristics - the rifle is a clip-loading, ten-round capacity weapon which is a minimum three bodyshot kill. However, the MAS most closely resembles the Turner SMLE in terms of damage model, which drops to a four shot kill at 30m and a five shot at 100m. Fire rate is also on par at 360 RPM. The MAS distinguishes itself from the SMLE at long range, as it has the highest default bullet velocity of all in-game weapons at 820 m/s as well as marginally lower vertical recoil. The rifle can be paired with a Medium Range Scope to further aid in target acquisition at distance.

The rifle can utilize Specializations to further increase potency. Notable upgrades in the tree are; Detachable Magazines at rank 3, which greatly improve reload speed and provides +1 capacity; Recoil Buffer at rank 4, which allows the weapon's rate of fire to be used more effectively by lowering vertical recoil to 0.976, and High Velocity Bullets, also at rank 4, which furthers increases projectile velocity to 920 m/s.
