The Mk18 ABR is a 7.62 mm designated marksman rifle used by the AAF in ArmA 3.

Overview Edit

The Mk18 ABR is a selective fire, gas operated, rotating bolt battle rifle that is chambered for the 7.62×51 mm NATO round.

It loads from 20 round box magazines and can attain a fire rate of up to 705 rounds per minute on full auto, with a muzzle velocity of 850 m/s. The ABR accepts accessories on its top, side and underbarrel rails, and can also mount attachments on its muzzle.

The Mk18 excels in taking down distant targets and is particularly effective at close-medium ranges. Its main weakness is that it has a low magazine capacity (a problem that all 7.62 mm battle rifles share) and that there a significant accuracy falloff while using it on full auto.

In contrast to the Mk-I EMR, the Mk18 is lighter to carry (though not nearly as light as its CSAT counterpart). However it is consequently less accurate at longer ranges compared to its NATO counterpart, and has a slightly lower maximum firing range as a result.

Trivia Edit

  • The Mk18 is based on the real-world American-made "Mark 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle (EBR)" designed by Arizona-based company Smith Enterprise Inc. for the U.S. Navy.
    • Its name should not be confused with the real "Mk18" series of modified carbines used by the U.S. military (also known as the "Close Quarter Battle Receiver" or CQBR).
  • It appears to be Lieutenant James' weapon of choice, as he is consistently seen wielding it throughout both The East Wind and Apex Protocol campaigns.
  • Prior to its addition in Game Update 1.04, the Mk18 ABR served as a placeholder DMR for CSAT forces until the Rahim was finally included into the base game.
  • Following Game Update 1.06, the ABR was also used by NATO Recon Marksmen as their primary weapon. This was later revoked with the release of the Marksmen DLC in Game Update 1.42, which reverted them back to using the MXM, making the Mk18 an AAF-exclusive weapon once again.
