“This mass produced bolt action rifle with scope sold in discount department stores and proudly made in the U.S.A.”
Store Description





The .308 Carbine is a bolt action sniper rifle in Far Cry 5, unlocked at resistance level 3. It uses Rifle ammo, like the assault rifles, .45/70 and AR-CL. The .308 Carbine is an improvement over the AR-CL in terms of long-range accuracy and power, but with the steep tradeoff of being bolt-action, being more punishing to use if the player is inaccurate. It has a 5-round magazine, extendable to 10, and can mount a supressor. As far as optics, while the .308 Carbine has the usual selection of sniper scopes and other high-magnification options, it has the unusual ability to forego optics completely and use its backup iron sights.

  • Accuracy: 7/10
  • Damage: 7/10
  • Range: 7/10
  • Rate Of Fire:3/10
  • Handling: 4/10

VariantsEdit

“ This 308 Carbine still checks you out on social media. The spark between you two will never die.”
Store Description

  • There is a prestige variant of the .308 Carbine called the "Old Flame." It is statistically identical to the regular rifle, but sports a flame paintjob similar to the SPAS-12 Flameout.

TriviaEdit

  • The .308 Carbine is supposedly based on the CZ 527, a bolt action hunting rifle made by CZ-USA, the American branch of Czechoslovakian weapons manufacturer CZ. However, the CZ 527 is not manufactured in .308, usually being chambered in the weaker .223 or 7.62x39. The rounds in the magazine are actually .308 rounds however.
  • The weapon is depicted with a flush-fitting 3-round magazine. However, the version ingame holds 5 rounds and does not change if the 10-round extended magazine is equipped.
  • The .308 Carbine was patched to have higher damage on par with its accuracy and range. It used to have a damage rating of 6.
