The P4-AR Rifle was reworked in Alpha 3.0.[3] The current P4-AR was adapted by CIG from what was previously called the P4-SC which is said to be collapsible, due to being more like an assault rifle than an SMG. Meanwhile, the old unseen P4-AR was either shelved or repurposed as another gun.[citation needed]


  • In October 2019 it was revealed that the P4-AR Rifle had been the most popular assault rifle for the January–October period of the same year, with 1,391,118 aggregate kills.[4]


  1. P4-AR Rifles might no longer be the standard issue rifle since P8-AR Rifles were shown to be used by the military in multiple Squadron 42 videos instead of P4-AR. Writer's Guide was written during the very early stage of development so it might have changed.
