Design and Performance
The Carbine is visually based on the Heckler & Koch G36C, albeit with an enlarged body, six vent handguard from the full size G36, with the 228mm barrel option (from the G36C). The picatinny rail carry handle is more linear than those of the G36 family, but is derived from the G36C variant. The assault rifle features a pistol grip with three thumb grooves, unlike any German assault rifle in production in 2013. The magazine's shape is rectangular, inspired by the Galil ARM rifle.
The weapon has very high damage per second, equal to that of the Gusenberg Sweeper, meaning higher than the Carbine Rifle and Combat MG (higher damage per shot), but lower than the Advanced Rifle (lower rate of fire). Accuracy is high, equal to that of the Carbine Rifle. While very powerful and accurate the Special Carbine has slightly less effective range than other assault rifles, which can limit its effectiveness at longer ranges, though its accuracy somewhat makes up for this.
In GTA Online, it is unlocked immediately unlike other assault rifles/carbines which have rank requirements.
