Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle will highlight Chests, Supply Drops, enemy heat signatures, lit Cozy Campfires and Supply Llamas with a yellow color making them easier to see against the blue that it shows everything else as.
  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle's damage does not change no matter what range it is shooting from. This combined with its 100% accuracy makes it optimal at longer ranges where sniper rifles are usually seen.
  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle has recoil after each shot, so it's recommended to tap fire.
  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle can be used to see enemies from afar. Build a tall tower or fort to get the most benefit out of the weapon.
  • Its magazine size of 15 means that players should not fire relentlessly if they do not want to waste bullets and time reloading.
  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle is a poor choice for destroying materials due to its low fire rate, but it's still a better choice than most at extremely long ranges.
  • The weapon can reveal bush campers, tree campers, wall campers, and even players who seem to be well hidden.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon is inspired by the M4 carbine with a SOPMOD Block I package, fitted with a thermal scope and front grip, and an unusable flashlight and laser sight attachments.
  • This weapon was a direct upgrade of the Uncommon and Rare Scoped Assault Rifle, dealing more damage and having a thermal scope. However, it shoots 0.2 seconds slower. (The Epic and Legendary Scoped Assault Rifle is the same as the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle, but it has no Thermal Scope, a 0.2 seconds faster firerate and a larger magazine of 20.)
  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle was the rarest weapon in the game, with only a 0.4% chance of finding one from a chest or floor loot.
