The XM8 is lighter than many other assault rifles, having a low weight of 10 points. It's high fire rate of 300 points and it's light portability makes up for it's high damage dropoff. It's recoil is relatively low at 26, and it's spread recovery rate is relatively quick, like the FAMAS. The XM8 comes with a pre-attached scope of the same magnification as the L96A1, a relatively rare trait seen within the Assault Rifles category.
