The G36 is a German Assault Rifle. It is unlocked at Rank 25 or can be purchased with credits (CR).

History

In 1990, Heckler and Koch (H&K) began working on a new 5.56×45mm NATO Assault Rifle, to replace the larger-caliber G3 Battle Rifle. The rifle was designed from the ground up and was designated "Project 50" or HK50. The prototype was trialed against the Austrian Styer AUG, where it was rated better. The weapon was finalized in 1995, with production commencing a year later. The HK50 rifle was adopted by the German Bundeswehr in 1997 as its standard-issue rifle, under the designation Gewehr 36, or G36.

Multiple variants were derived from the original G36. Notable variants include the G36C, a sub-carbine variant and the MG36, a Light Machine Gun variant which features a heavier barrel, bipod, and 100-round Beta C magazine. [1]

During combat in Afghanistan, the G36 suffered from overheating when exposed to prolonged firefights, which severely affected the accuracy of the weapon. This was due to the weapon being mostly comprised of polymer material, which had poor heat endurance and did not suit sustained automatic fire. Due to these concerns, the German Minister of Defense stated in 2012 that the G36 was being phased out of the German Bundeswehr.

In response, the G36A2 was created, featuring an upgraded barrel for better sustained automatic fire, but also an LLM01 laser module and a Zeiss red dot sight atop its telescopic sight. As of late 2017, the German government has been seeking a replacement for the G36, with either H&K's HK417 and HK416 (Latter already adopted as the G38 in some units), or the Rheinmetall Styer RS556. Any G36 to remain in service are likely to be upgraded to the A2 variant.

In-Game

General Information

The G36 is only capable of automatic and semi-automatic fire. The weapon comes with a 4.0x magnification scope by default, higher than the AUG A1. Another similarity with the AUG A1 is that the G36 shares is the ability to switch between the default optic and an attached optic by pressing T. The G36 is an accurate, long-barreled weapon that also has very controllable recoil and a high Rate of Fire (RoF), although it is slower than some other assault rifles, like the FAMAS and AS VAL.

Thanks to its long barrel and aforementioned accuracy, this rifle has very low recoil per shot and can accurately fire off rounds on semi-auto to engage distant enemies. The telescopic sight issued with the G36 further improves its long-range accuracy. However, this scope also proves rather inaccurate when moving - equipping any other optic will mitigate this issue.

The G36 is generally much more effective at medium to long range. While it does have a high rate of fire, the mediocre hip accuracy of the weapon means that engaging enemies without aiming are relatively ineffective. When firing the weapon in full-automatic, it is important to fire in controlled bursts as the weapon is very capable of burning through several magazines very quickly.

Finally, no suppressor attachment for the G36 decreases its STK number, meaning the weapon is a good candidate for a stealth build.

Usage & Tactics

While using the G36, one should keep in mind that it does not particularly excel at short range, but performs better at medium and long ranges. Due to this, Close-Quarters Combat (CQC) is not recommended with the G36. It would be preferable to switch to a secondary weapon in case such a situation arises.

The G36 comes with a default optic and is quite accurate at long ranges. One can use this to their advantage by concealing themselves and picking out enemies one by one, much like in a DMR. To further increase accuracy, players can opt for a Stubby grip or Angled grip. An important thing to note is that since the G36 has a fairly fast RoF, engaging at CQC range is still a viable tactic with this weapon should the user need to. Compared to the AUG A1, its faster RoF makes it easier to use against PDWs and Shotguns in CQC, since with its lower TTK, there is less time for enemies to react and counterattack. While the faster RoF also increases ammunition consumption, it can be kept to a minimum by tap-firing or switching to semi-auto at longer ranges.

Conclusion

While not as powerful as some Assault Rifles, the G36 is a very versatile one, with helpful additions like a default scope, good fire rate, and good range. Though it may not be very attractive in the stock format, one can customize it to their needs.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Integral telescopic sight - press T to switch between an equipped optic and the G36's scope.
    • With no optic, press T to switch the magnification level of the G36's scope.
  • Moderate Damage Per Second for its class.
  • Low recoil per shot.
  • Moderate recoil when firing full-auto.
  • Good RoF (Rate of Fire).
  • Good range for its class.

Cons:

  • Default optic has a low Field Of View (FOV).
  • Default optic restricts peripheral vision.
  • Carry handle can obstruct a user's vision.
  • Poor hip fire spread.
  • Lacks backup iron sights.

Trivia

  • Originally, when a new sight was put onto the G36, the carrying handle was removed. This is no longer the case.
    • Instead, the new sight is put on top of the carrying handle, allowing the player to switch from the default sight to the new sight by pressing T.
  • Prior to the 3.9.? update, the G36 lacked any alternative aim.
    • Now, pressing T with no optic equipped changes the magnification level of the default scope.
  • The overheating problem of the G36 is partly because of its furniture.
    • Interestingly, the Saudi Arabian G36s had no heating issues despite the country being a taxing desert environment as reported by TFB (The Firearm Blog) as of 2017. All confirmed issues were from the German high brass with no complaints from other countries.[2]
  • The Canted Iron and Delta sights are horrendously misaligned.
