Red Dot Sight
The P416 is an assault rifle in Far Cry 3. It is frequently seen in gameplay trailers.
This is the primary weapon of choice for Privateer Assaulters, Privateer Defenders and Privateer Recruits. It is initially available in the main story mission Warrior Rescue Service mission where Privateers appear in the game, wielding this weapon. If picked up, it will not be lost after death or saves but cannot be customized until the Southern Island is reached. It has a very short barrel, but has the same range as the other assault rifles, and features a high rate of fire and low recoil pattern with moderate damage.
A signature version called Bushman, with an extended magazine, a suppressor and a marksman sight equipped can be unlocked by deactivating all 18 Radio Towers throughout the game. It costs $3800. The Bushman is the one of only three assault rifles in the game that are available with a suppressor, and the only fully automatic one of those three (you cannot equip a suppressor to the standard P416 either). It also has the longest range and third highest damage of any assault rifle in the game, only being surpassed by the ACE and the MS16 in the damage category. The weapon description states that it uses an optical scope, despite the fact that it uses a marksman sight.
- The P416 is modelled on Patriot Ordnance Factory's P-415 and P-416 series.
- A bolt release can be seen on the left side of the weapon, but Jason does not seem to know how to use it; he pulls the charging handle every time he reloads unless there is already a round in the chamber.
- This weapon is preferred by Privateers because it is more accurate and fires faster then the AK47.
