The KR-15 is the Tier 5 short-barrel rifle of the Sapper class. It is an assault rifle featuring moderate damage, great accuracy, and a very high rate of fire at close to 600 RPM, the highest in the assault rifle and short-barrel rifle weapon classes (rivaled only by the Stacker) and nearly matching that of submachine guns. Coupled with its solid damage, the KR-15 is quite effective in close-mid range gunfights. However the high RPM results in major recoil when hip-firing, making the weapon more difficult to control than the HS-414. Performance of the gun also decreases dramatically as range increases. Aiming down the sights or moving towards a target while firing helps to mitigate the recoil a bit.
Comparison with other weaponsEdit
The KR-15 is a popular choice among Sapper players due to its versatile performance and unrivaled rate of fire. Along with the WES and the Stacker, it is considered among the top-tier weapons of the Sapper class.
In comparison to the WES, the KR-15 has faster rate-of-fire, slightly higher accuracy and a better reload speed. While the WES has a longer range, higher damage and armor penetration, larger clip size, and faster overall time-to-kill; the KR-15 taking 4-5 shots to kill compared to the WES or KOG V which take 3-4.
On the whole, the superior and consistent performance of the WES at all ranges makes it a more versatile weapon, and the WES is usually considered to outclass the KR-15 on the whole. Nevertheless, the KR-15 is still a viable substitute, and is much easier to obtain with only 10 blueprints required to unlock it.
Comparing the KR-15 with assault rifles, the KR is slightly outperformed on the whole by the the KOG V or the PR39. However as the Sapper has access to powerful turrets, a good player can utilize them to increase his firepower.
- The name suggests that this rifle is manufactured by Kremlin Rifles and is related to the KR-200, but this is unconfirmed.
