The AS Val sports a silent suppressor which is unique. It has a lower than average magazine size, with 20 rounds per magazine but 120 rounds in reserve. It cannot be outfitted with an extended magazine, limiting its firepower.
With a damage statistic of 48, the AS Val will mostly be a three-shot kill to the front and back in medium ranges, and in long ranges shots will often kill after four or five hits, making it one of the more powerful assault rifles in-game. The AS Val also has a portability rating of 68, making it one of the more portable assault rifles in the game. It has an average rate of fire, 74, which is on par with the M4A1. The AS Val is the second most accurate assault rifle in the game at 92 points, surpassed only by Zharkov's AN94. The AS Val also has a low recoil statistic of 63 points, on par with the Baron's M416 CQB.
