Use SMGs For Close Quarters

While the SA87 can boast accurate shots over long distances, it can be pretty weak when used in CQC. Use your SMGs when confronted by enemies at close range.

Smoke Grenade For Cover & Offense

You can use the Smoke Grenade to cover your team when going to a better position. You can also use it to pick off hapless enemies with the SA87's Thermal Optic.

Attachment Setup For SA87

Long-Range LMG Setup

AttachmentReason

SA87 25.4 FactorySA87 25.4 FactoryLonger barrel increases muzzle velocity and extends range. Additional weight stabilizes shots, but hinders mobility.
Merc Thermal OpticMerc Thermal Optic3.25x scope with thermal imaging highlights targets and provides visibility in all lighting conditions. Not compatible with NVG goggles.
Ranger ForegripRanger ForegripStandard foregrip improves vertical recoil and stabilizes weapon while aiming for improved long range combat.
60 Round Mags60 Round MagsHigh Capacity magazines hold 60 rounds of 5.56 NATO ammunition with a moderate weight increase.

Thermal Optic + Smoke = Kills

The Merc Thermal Optic can see through Smoke and can also highlight hard to see enemies. This makes it easy to root out enemy troops in either side of the smoke. Use Smoke Grenades to either cover your escape or at enemies to obscure their vision, then rattle them with the SA87.

Good Recoil Control & Range

This setup boasts good accuracy and range while also having good recoil control. This makes the SA87 quite handy when fighting in either mid or long-range encounters.

Replace Shrapnel With Tune Up

If you find yourself constantly running out of ammo, equip Munitions Box and use it in tandem with Tune Up. With this combination, you'll be constantly refilling your ammo after some time.

Attachment Setup For SA87

60 Round Mags60 Round MagsHigh Capacity magazines hold 60 rounds of 5.56 NATO ammunition with a moderate weight increase.

Get 60 Round Mags

As an LMG, the base ammo capacity SA87 is comparable to that of an AR. Make it into a full-on LMG by giving it a 60-Round Magazine for better sustain.

Decent Accuracy & Recoil Control

This setup also boosts the SA87's accuracy, control, and range. Use it well by hunkering down and covering a position or chokepoint.

Not A Mobile Build

Do not run around or try to use quick ADS with this setup as you will likely be outclassed by SMGs and ARs. Use this one to defend objectives and key points instead.

SA87 Traits

Weapon Traits

Trading Damage For Control

SA87 trades damage and rate of fire for lower recoil and better control. It can perform steadily in most situations to full effect.

Effective Even At Longer Ranges

Good control allows SA87 to reliably hit targets further away then most weapons. In maps that require you to scout, suppress from afar or take care of snipers, Sa87 can be helpful.
