The AS VAL assault rifle is new in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and is a bit unfair. The enormous penetrating power cannot really be intended, even several walls made of concrete are not an obstacle.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Each new season in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone brings its new weapons with it, in Season 6 this is among other things AS VAL assault rifle New. The weapon can be equipped with a special type of ammunition and it has it all.

With the ammunition attachment "SPP 10-S magazine" you load ten armor-piercing bullets into the weapon, whereby armor piercing is an understatementbecause nothing seems to stop the projectiles. Whether wood, steel or several concrete walls, the bullets penetrate absolutely everything and of course everyone. The fact that the actually fully automatic weapon becomes a semi-automatic weapon makes up for the penetration power.

The small magazine and the switch to semi-automatic are also the only reasons that ensure that the weapon is not completely “broken”. Just imagine if the gun could have a 60- or 100-round magazine like some assault rifles do. All you have to do is turn in a circle, shoot and wait for a hit marker.

On the map Grazna Raid lies between the first two spawn points a complete city block, no problem for the AS VAL:

The YouTuber TheXclusiveAce has the gun combined with a snapshot grenade and so created the absolute class against campers. When thrown over a wall or around a corner, the grenade briefly shows whether there are opponents there. Since the walls no longer offer any protection, this is enough to simply take out the opponents in their cover.

Infinity Ward will probably not leave the weapon in this form for a long time. The intention was certainly to bring a weapon into play that would be particularly good at covering enemies, but it certainly wasn't going to be that powerful. At the moment you can still catch players on the other side of the map.
