The AS VAL (AS VAL) is a silenced assault carbine in Escape from Tarkov.
AS VAL (Avtomat Specialniy, Special Automatic Rifle) - silenced automatic rifle with integral suppressor designed for special forces units. Developed in TSNIITochMash on the VSS Vintorez platform.
BUG: Before removing the standard stock from the AS VAL, make sure that it is unfolded. If it is folded when removed, any new stock will not have its stats applied. You can also press
Right Click and then "Unfold" to apply the new stats. The weapon won't change size. Make sure the combined recoil statistic is closer to 120 rather than 250.
- Since the AS "Val" uses an integrated suppressor, the amount of noise and visible muzzle flash gets reduced. This can give an advantage for PMCs who have this rifle because it can help PMCs kill other PMCs and Scavs quietly and stealthily, not alerting them to their presence.
- It is suggested to use the AS "Val" in Factory, since the rifle's range is more limited than other firearms, mainly due to its integrated suppressor and subsonic ammunition.
- Due to the extreme bullet drop of the 9x39 round, the AS VAL performs poorly at long-range engagements. Even mid-ranged combat requires significant accounting for the bullet drop. Because of this, the AS VAL is best used as a high-powered close quarters rifle.
