Call Of Duty : Modern Warfare 2
Unlocked at Level 8 in multiplayer, the high damage and medium recoil of the SCAR-H makes it used widely by many players, despite its small magazine capacity and lower rate of fire. It is extremely versatile, as its high damage and low recoil make it effective at all ranges. It has the least ammo of all automatic assault rifles due to its small magazine size, and it also has a fairly slow reload. Stopping Power is useful with this weapon due to it's low rate of fire but relatively high damage and small magazine. The SCAR-H is a one shot kill at any range in Hardcore modes.
The iron sights on the SCAR-H are extremely clear and give an unobstructed view of the target, making a Red Dot Sight or Holographic Sight unneeded by those who can use its iron sights well, freeing the slot for other attachments, such as aSilencer or Grenade Launcher.
One of the major disadvantages of the SCAR-H is its small magazine size, which also gives it a small amount of reserve ammunition. Scavenger and Extended Magazines are both very popular with the SCAR-H.
- The SCAR-H magazines are equipped with a Magpul soft polymer sleeve to allow for easier removal of them from magazine pouches.
- Directly under the iron sights the text reads "INFINITY WARD, USA. ENCINO, CA. www.infinityward.com and IW BROCK," followed by some indistinguishable letters.
- Sometimes in the 3rd person multiplayer modes a SCAR-H with camouflage will lose its camouflage when the player changes to a secondary weapon.
