The FG42 was a selective-fire rifle developed by the Luftwaffe as a specialist weapon for German paratroopers during World War II. Compared to the AUG A1, the FG42 has a 3 points higher damage rating, but has a 1 point increase in recoil and 4 points lower rate of fire, as well as the loss of the AUG's telescopic scope and burst fire function. Its other features includes a unique reload animation as the magazine is inserted in the side of the gun, and a noticeably quick spread recovery when fired. All in all, it is a balance weapon that boasts high damage and high accuracy, but as it cannot accommodate a scope attachment, it cannot fully utilize these features in long ranged firefights.
