Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Best Assault Rifles


The ACR is a solid assault rifle suited for just about any situation. It has high accuracy, handling, and rate of fire, making it easy to use and especially deadly if you can get a good burst off. It does slightly less damage than some other weapons in this category, but its high rate of fire can make up for that as long as you keep hitting your target.
