Hardline Battlefield 2042

Two versions of the SCAR-H appear in Battlefield 2042, the futuristic SFAR-M GL (Special Forces Assault Rifle - Modern) in the base game and the Battlefield 3 version of the SCAR-H in Battlefield Portal.


"Designed for SOCOM. Default chambered for standard NATO 7.62mm rounds. Capable of both semi-auto and automatic fire. The standard EGLM 40mm grenade launcher can deliver a lot of damage to a variety of targets."

— In-game description

The SFAR-M GL is an assault rifle featured in Battlefield 2042. It alone is equipped with an Mk 13 40mm grenade launcher with up to four ammunition types available, while the FB GP and GP-30 is used on all other underbarrel-capable weapons. No other underbarrel attachments are available as the grenade launcher is always equipped, To compensate this. The SFAR-M has better spread than average and lower hip fire over competing assault rifles by default.

By default, The SFAR-M GL comes with High-Power ammunition. These rounds have four hit kill range at 49 meters, making it one of the more long range-oriented rifle out of the category, and equipping a suppressor will not lower this level. However, due to the default rate of fire at 600 RPM, The SFAR-M GL struggles more to compete against more close quarter dominant weapons.

To slightly compensate this, the SFAR-M GL can load Standard Issue ammunition. pushing the fire rate up to 650 RPM. While still slow, it can compete better at close range against other assault rifles and even some SMGs.

It should be noted that the empty reload time of the SFAR-M GL is about 1.2 seconds longer than the tactical (non-empty) reload, so players need to pay attention to their remaining ammunition during firefights.

The 40mm HE is equipped by default. Alternatively, player can load 40mm AP for anti-vehicle role, 40mm Incendiary for area denial and 40mm Smoke for cover. Compared to FB GP and GP-30 on other weapons, EGLM has the fastest reload time.

Along with the NTW-50 anti-materiel rifle, its progression counts vehicles destroyed along with kills, primarily earned through its grenade launcher. It is one of four weapons that can also carry 40mm AP grenades, alongside the AK-24, LCMG and SVK.
