September Patch Analysis (2.6.23.3)

New Weapon

Mini14

The Mini-14 is a lightweight and compact 5.56 semi-automatic marksman rifle. It can take any optic sight and uses sniper rifle attachments for the muzzle and magazine slot. Unlike the recently added weapons, the Mini-14 spawns randomly around the world of Erangel, not in care packages.

The Mini-14 has a low hit damage of 44, placing it between the VSS and the SKS for single hit damage. However, it has a very high initial bullet speed of 990, making it the fastest in the game. Because of the very high muzzle velocity paired with 5.56mm ammunition, the bullet drop is noticeably low which compensates for the low hit damage.

Compare the Mini-14 to the other sniper rifles on the Sniper Rifles comparison page.
