Overview[edit | edit source]

Design[edit | edit source]

The Sporting Carbine on the main branch of upgrades are based on the Colt AR-15. The weapon's actual name, the PAC-15, references that specific model. It features the fixed stock instead of the usual collapsible one.

The Sporting Carbine on the alternate branch of upgrades are based on a version of the Colt AR-15 modified with a Close Quarters Battle Receiver. This modification gives the weapon its notably shorter barrel.

As with all customizable weapons, subsequent versions include a multitude of accessories to visually represent its improved stats. Attachments on the Sporting Carbine include scopes, extended magazines, laser aiming devices, flashlight/laser combos, suppressors, magazine base pads, and foregrips. As later versions of the Sporting Carbine are unlocked, the grip and stocks are replaced. Float tubes are installed to replace the fore stock on both branches. Specific to the main branch of upgrades, the fixed stock is replaced with a more modern fixed stock. Specific to the alternate branch of upgrades, the fixed stock is first replaced with a pistol buffer tube, then a minimalist stock.

The Last Aid version of the Sporting Carbine appears to be a mix of the second and fifth versions on the main branch of upgrades, retaining the grip, stock, and scope of the former, but keeping the fore stock, flashlight/laser combo, and suppressor of the latter. The magazine also has the base pad seen on some of the versions on the alternate branch of upgrades. The design of this version features a red and white color scheme with both the star of life and the words "Last Aid" written on the stock.

The Signature Weapon version of the Sporting Carbine is based on the fourth version on the alternate branch of upgrades. However, the float tube has been replaced with a rail system and an internal suppressor, and the scope has been replaced with a holographic sight. The design of this version features a jungle camo pattern and red highlights with a red and black paracord neatly tied around the base of the rail system.

The AMD50 version of the Sporting Carbine is based on fourth version on the main branch of upgrades. However, the scope is the same one seen on the second version on the main branch. Despite the magazine base pad appearing the same as any other, it does not hold any extra rounds compared to every other version available. The design of this version features a white, black, and gold color scheme. The AMD logo as well as the number 50 (for 50th anniversary) are written on the stock.
