The AS-VAL is a strong, if unorthodox, option for the seasoned veteran when combat gets up close and personal.
A relatively new introduction to Warzone via the season 6 battle pass, the AS VAL is a unique option for players that is as polarizing as it is powerful. As an AR that has a built-in suppressor, it is strong, clinical, and has potent rounds. However, its recoil pattern has more than a slight learning curve to it, with a strong kick. In the hands of the right player, the AS-VAL can carry them to victory.
- Barrel – VLK 200mm Osa
- Stock – VLK Strelok
- Underbarrel – Merc Foregrip
- Ammunition – 30 Round Mags
- Perk – Sleight of Hand
The VLK 200mm Osa is a unique attachment, as it works in accordance with the gun’s internal Monolithic Suppressor to vastly improve effective range and bullet velocity. The VLK Strelok is an attachment that assists significantly with making the gun more accurate and reliable with only a minor ADS tradeoff. The Merc Foregrip further assists is reducing recoil and with the benefit of better hip fire. The 30 round mags detract a bit from all the pros of the AS-VAL, as its power is offset by a small clip size. Sleight of Hand reduces reload time, potentially becoming the difference in a close gunfight.
CQC Combat: In close quarters, the unhinged power of the AS-VAL in a crucial asset. The recoil is much less of a nuisance when not being shot from distance as well.
Fast ADS: The ADS of this gun is incredible, as it locks in on targets efficiently and smoothly.
Magazine Capacity: As has already been mentioned, the AS-VAL struggles with constantly having a near empty clip due to its small magazine size. That is why Sleight of Hand can be a crucial perk to have
Range: The damage drop-off is noticeable and drastic when it comes to the AS-VAL, it is definitely important for a player to be well aware of their distance from their target in order to avoid making a massive mistake
