World War Z Wiki

The Battle Rifle (HAMR-17) is a tier III primary weapon featured in World War Z.


The Battle Rifle, or HAMR-17, is a Semi-Auto rifle largely based on the real-life FN SCAR-H that fires 7.62x51mm NATO rounds.


The Battle Rifle is the tier III semi-auto rifle, with higher damage and accuracy then than the full-auto rifle, and a penetration value of 2, but comparatively slow rate of fire.
