TAR21 (Tavor Assault Rifle of the 21st Century) is an Israeli bullpup assault rifle available in CrossFire.
TAR21 is one of the famous bullpup rifles in the world. It's been exported to many countries since released. The rifle was designed to fulfill the need of the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) for a reliable, durable, and easier maintenance rifle.
The design was initiated by the Tavor development team directed by a gun designer, Zalmen Shebs. The development program started in 1995 and once completed, it has been put in service of the IDF from 2001 until present.
TAR21 performs almost as similar as M4A1, but with a slightly improved damage and rate of fire. Additionally while the M4A1's shot grouping spreads radially, the TAR's shot grouping goes noticeably upward in the y-axis.
Moreover, it is equipped with a MARS sight which (although illogical) acts as an optical zoom scope that is optional for players to use in mid-to-long range. The TAR is very accurate while zoomed it, compared to other rifles, due to its quick bloom reset time that allows the shooter to quickly recover for follow-up shots. As a downside, however, it is nearly unusable when fired in full auto while zoomed in due to the low RoF and higher recoil before the bloom resets.
Overall, the TAR is as every bit as versatile as the M4A1, although has a bit more advantage in ranged combat due to the scope and burst pattern that can allow one to land headshots easily if burst-firing starting from the chest.
- MARS Sight is supposed to be an improved Red Dot Sight, not an optical zoom scope.
- TAR21, M4A1, and Pindad SS2 share the same stats in the Item Shop.
