"Combining accuracy, maneuverability, firepower and low recoil, this is an extremely versatile assault rifle for any combat situation."
GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Vom Feuer Special Carbine is an assault rifle appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Business Update.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Carbine is visually based on the Heckler & Koch G36C. The handguard is a similar size and shape to that of the G36C, but the vent holes are lower down that of the H&K, meaning space for six instead of two per side. 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 7.62 Galil variant's magazines, which is odd considering the use of 5.56mm ammunition. The front sight is very different than that of the actual G36C's, in that it lacks the circular, round front sights seen in other Heckler & Koch weapons such as the Heckler & Koch MP5 and HK416. Instead of the G36's ambidextrous charging handle that lies flush with the body, the Special Carbine has a charging handle that juts out on both sides of the weapon in the same location.

Although the weapon can only fire in full-automatic, there is a double-sided fire selector with small icons on it, which "X" is the safe position, ">" is semi-automatic and ">>" is full-automatic.


Grand Theft Auto V

Chambered in 5.56mm, the weapon has very high damage per second, equal to that of the Gusenberg Sweeper, meaning higher than the Carbine Rifle and Assault Rifle (higher damage per shot), but lower than the Advanced Rifle (lower rate of fire) and both the MG (lower damage per shot) and Combat MG (lower damage per shot and rate of fire in RPM). 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.

The Special Carbine also has a unique knocking firing sound, which seems to have more impact force than other assault rifles, hence the fact that it deals more damage than most of them.
