Optimized MBP.50

"For when you gotta chop some vegetables, but also hunt from an extreme distance."

Weapon Description

Far Cry New Dawn.

The Optimized MBP.50 is a Rank 3 weapon. It has a telescope mounted on the gun itself to serve as an improvised scope, with a zip-tie and elastic bands supporting it. It also has a spray paint can attached to the barrel to serve as an improvised silencer. There also appears to be metal fixtures next to it on the body of the gun itself. The handle next to the trigger is partially wrapped in electrical tape.

"Guerilla Gear" MBP.50

"Black Matte is always in style. Part of the Guerilla-Gear Theme."

Weapon Description

Far Cry New Dawn.

The "Guerilla Gear" MBP.50 is a Rank 4 weapon. Unlike most of the silencers used in the game, this particular weapon has a proper silencer. It is colored matte black with white accents.

Trivia

  • The MBP .50 is based on the Hard Target Interdiction anti-material rifle, a rifle produced by Desert Tech.[1]
  • The gold variant mentions the trend of the well-off having a lot of expensive guns that they never use.
  • Jacob's rifle points out that Jacob killed a lot of people with it, as you'd have to surpass his own kill count to be able to finally call it "your" rifle.
    • It shares the same ruby-red coloration as Jacob's custom plane, the Pack Hunter.
  • A Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon themed variant, the "Blood & Dragon" was added in title update 11.[2]
  • Oddly, the MBP .50, SA-50, and D50 share the same ammunition pool; while the rifles fire the large .50 BMG cartridge, the D50 fires the smaller .50 Action Express cartridge. This was likely done for gameplay purposes, as adding an entirely new ammo type for one weapon would have not been feasible.
