Default Where do you get SCAR ammo?

I keep reading that the SCAR is supposed to be your main weapon, but I have not been able to use it so far due to the fact I cannot find any ammo for it. I'm at the excatvation site right now, and have had to use the North Korean rifle pretty much the whole time, except the beggining. Am I missing something here?

I never found any till I met with US troops. You have a way to go till you get to any scar ammo.

Yeah, it's gay how we get supplied with SCAR weapon and not use it again. I really like SCAR. Silent, but deadly.

There was only a couple occasions where I found scar ammo. So really, once the ammo runs out at the beginning of the game. I never used it again.

Yeah you only get it when there are marines in the level and you can pick up their ammo once their dead. Which makes it impossible to play through the entire game with the SCAR because you WILL run out of ammo before the marines come in.

No you are not missing anything,ammo for that weapon is very VERY scarce in comparison to most of the others.I also hated that you could not dump the pistols and grab an extra rifle,etc....

-Spoliers-


The pistols are near useless.Especially when you start to run into the tougher enemies after mission one and two (with full heavy body armor)
Not to mention nano suits of there own !! and better weapons then you have,and the damn aliens themselves that make the KPA look like romper
room...

Yea the pistols look cool, but theres not much use for them unless you can get a close headshot in with em.

And sometimes that doesnt even work!

I dont even care for the SCAR, the ammo is scarce, so theres no point having it.

I just replaced it with the Korean one, er...Fy71?

I put the pistols on three shots and they work well for close range. Two clicks = 6 shots... not to bad. I kinda like them. :/

Have you tried using them against the aliens ?? Better off giving them dirty looks,and this at point blank range.

Default Re: Where do you get SCAR ammo?

the pistols are excellent especially when you double tap

I kept the SCAR for most of the game, I would use it for more precise shots but my main weapon was the AK, I love that thing
