It is in service with the People's Liberation Army. It uses the Chinese 5.8x42mm DBP87 cartridge with a typically 30 round magazine, has a rate of fire of around 650 rounds per minute and an effective range of 400 meters, with a maximum range of 600 meters. It also has a specialized and optional 4x telescopic sight.
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
In Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, the Type 95 is issued to PLA Assault soldiers. It has a moderate rate of fire, a 30 round magazine, high damage and good accuracy. It can kill in a single head shot and is effective as a sharpshooting weapon with its ACOG-like scope. It also has a Type 91 underbarrel grenade launcher attached to it. Blind firing for head shots and the grenade launcher can easily dispose of a large group of enemies.
In multiplayer, it is issued to the PLA Assault kit and can be used similarly to how it's used in singleplayer.
— Battlelog description
The QBZ-95 makes a second appearance in Battlefield 3 as the QBZ-95B. To unlock the 95B, the first Engineer assignment Fixing It, must have already been completed. Once it is done, the second assignment It Goes Boom!, is unlocked enabling the completion of the assignment. It is done by destroying a vehicle with the Repair Tool, killing 50 enemies with Anti-Tank Rockets, and winning 5 Conquest rounds.
The weapon is similar in handling to the AKS-74u. Vertical recoil is very manageable, but horizontal recoil can prove to be a problem (although in October 27 2012 this issue was patched to provide a more controlled pattern). It has a slow firing speed at 650 rpm, comparable to the SCAR-H. Its iron sights are similar to the QBB-95. Due to its short length it cannot be equipped with a bipod. The weapon has a foregrip already attached, and after the March 2012 patch this properly affects weapon handling. The weapon itself is quite accurate and has a small crosshair. Its damage is comparable to most other Carbines; but has one of the longer reloads.Unlike any other carbine, rifle or machine gun, the QBZ-95B can equip either the Laser Sight or the Flashlight in addition to the Heavy Barrel, Suppressor, or Flash Suppressor. This gives it a considerable advantage in situational versatility over other Carbines. Overall, this gun seems to be more favouring accuracy than brute force.
- The QBZ-95B in Battlefield 3 was originally going to be the Type 97.
