Mini 14 DMR Guide
The Mini 14 was made available in the September 14, 2017 Update.
Boasting high bullet speed and low bullet drop, the Mini 14 makes it easy to hit even a running target. In addition, there is virtually no recoil, so it’s pretty simple to get handle of. The Mini 14 can be used in mid-range combat like an assault rifle, as one can tap-fire their way through 20 rounds before the need to reload. That said, a large-capacity magazine attachment – increasing the number of rounds to 30 – is preferred if the Mini 14 is to be used as a replacement for an assault rifle.
Compared to the SKS, the Mini 14 is easier to find, and uses the more commonly-available 5.56mm rounds. Arguably its biggest drawback is its low power: though it’s slightly stronger than most assault rifles, it’s weaker than the AKM. Certain players may thus find the assault rifles’ ease-of-use preferable.
Players who have never experienced the joy of sniping should find the Mini 14 easy to use, so if you can find a 4x ACOG Scope, go ahead and take a crack at those long-range shots.
