Far Cry 5
One of the first weapons that will be used by The Junior Deputy, the AR-C can be easily found on a large number of bodies, both living and dead. A basic weapon, the main advantage it holds over the AK-47 is an increased fire rate, and is a good all-around starter weapon until the users obtains a weapon they prefer.
The base model, the AR-C has one of the highest amounts of weapon skins for a single weapon in the game, having eight in total. The "Gold Medalist" skin can be unlocked by completing the Vespiary Prepper Stash, while the "Goldenhide" skin can be unlocked in UPlay by logging into the Far Cry Arcade website.
The AR-C can be fitted with one of several optical sights, a suppressor, an extended magazine, and one of several skins.
The Shark can be fitted with one of several optical sights, a suppressor, and an extended magazine, but as it is a Prestige weapon, can not be fitted with a skin.
Part of the deluxe edition content, the Silver & Carbon Fiber is an AR-C decked out in bright chrome and bold red.
The Silver & Carbon Fiber can be fitted with one of several optical sights, a suppressor, and an extended magazine, but as it is a Prestige weapon, can not be fitted with a skin.
The weapon of a true patriot, the Stars & Stripes is an AR-C themed in a bright blue base, with red and white accents in the style of Old Glory.
The Stars & Stripes can be fitted with one of several optical sights, a suppressor, and an extended magazine, but as it is a Prestige weapon, can not be fitted with a skin.
Far Cry New Dawn
The AR-C returns in Far Cry New Dawn, in which it is the most commonly used firearm by the Highwaymen.
The Rusty AR-C is the first Assault Rifle the Player Acquires. It's a Rank 1 weapon and quickly becomes of little use. Perhaps due to its decayed nature, the reload is noticeably longer than normal. This rifle appears to be somewhat damaged, as its components are being held together with zip-ties, elastic bands, and duct tape.
AR-C "Rock Paper Scissors"
The AR-C "Rock Paper Scissors", is the sixth assault rifle the Player acquires. the gun itself has red duct tape on its stock, and it is also fitted with a scope and a scissor blade to serve as an improvised bayonet. The barrel seems to be unstable as there appears to be a zip-tie and an L-Shaped metal fixture keeping it stable.
- The AR-C appears to be based upon a AR-15 styled rifle with some resemblance to the Remington R5 rifle. The fact that it fires in full auto mode is a reference to popular belief of gun control activists who mistake the AR-15 an assault rifle.
- Despite clearly being a select-fire firearm with settings for both burst and fully automatic, the in-game description describes the AR-C as a semi-automatic rifle, but given that it also says it's popular with the DIY crowd, it suggests that all AR-Cs in Far Cry 5 have been illegally converted to fire in full auto.
- Like the Skorpion, Vector .45 ACP and MP5 variants, the AR-C's fire selector moves to show the selected fire mode, though like the MP5 burst and auto use the same setting.
