The TAR is a Terran Republic Assault Rifle. The TAR's high rate of fire and small hip fire cone, coupled with its ability to equip an Advanced Laser Sight make it one of the Terran Republic's most effective close range ARs. An alternative is the Cycler TRV, which boasts a higher rate of fire, but comes with a much longer reload and the largest hip fire cone of all TR Assault Rifles.

TAR Field Of Use Edit

The TAR performs excellently within close quarters and medium range, it is best used by front line and aggressive Combat Medics. Who prefer to stick with their teammates and carry on, its excellent hip fire and quicker reloads seem to outclass the Cycler TRV but it is hampered by its apparent recoil and cone of fire bloom almost uncontrollable at long ranges that is notably high in comparison to the Cycler TRV. It has the best hipfire cone-of-fire of the Terran Republic Assault Rifles, has a notably clean and quite non obstructive iron sights in comparison to the Cycler TRV which is highly obtrusive and in contrast to the TAR and T1 Cycler has no illuminated sights.

Ribbons and MedalsEdit

It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the TAR. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the TAR. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the TAR.
