The FN SCAR-H is an enigma of the Rainbow Six series. While obviously labeled and styled after the 7.62x51mm heavy caliber rifle, in actual use it is modeled after the lighter 5.56x45mm SCAR-L variant. With a magazine capacity of 30 rounds(20 for the SCAR-H) and low recoil, this weapon is suitable for close quarters combat(CQC). With lessons learned from the Korean and Vietnam wars battle rifles such as the M14 have largely faded away due to the heavy recoil and generally uncontrollable nature of the 7.62x51mm NATO when fired fully-automatically.
The SCAR has received high levels of negitive criticism from a large amount of players of Rainbow Six: Vegas and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. This criticism is mainly due to the fact that it is a very easy weapon to wield, making it ideal for new players to the franchise.
