Spec Ops Wiki

The SCAR-H is an assault rifle that appears in Spec Ops: The Line.


The SCAR-H first appears in Chapter 2, lying on the ground just before the ambush at the hotel. Why this is here is unknown, as there is no sane reason for it to be there, unless some refugee picked it up from a dead 33rd soldier and was killed by Delta. After this it does not reappear again until the very late game, Chapter 13, in which it becomes extremely common. It is often used by elite 33rd soldiers, though it can still be used by regular 33rd soldiers as well. It has an underslung MK 13 grenade launcher which can be useful for taking out groups of enemies at range.

If the player selects Chapter 14 from Chapter Select, Walker will be equipped with this weapon along with a M1014.


It is unlocked at level 33. It does not retain the MK 13 grenade launcher attachment.


  • The SCAR-H has a 33rd Infantry insignia on the side of it, similar to the AA-12, FAMAS, M-99 Sniper, and Vector.
  • SCAR stands for Special Operations Combat Assault Rifle. The H stands for Heavy, a reference to the heavier 7.62 x 51mm ammunition it is chambered for, as opposed to the 5.56 x 45mm used in the M4A1.
  • In real life, the SCAR-H is only used by US Special Operations units such as Delta Force, rather than regular Army units like the 33rd.
  • During the campaign in Chapter 7, there is a cutscene where a 33rd soldier with a SCAR-H without the MK 13 grenade launcher uses it to torture a civilian and Rick Gould through sand-boarding. This version of the SCAR-H is not obtainable by the player during the campaign, as the soldier wielding it switches to a M4A1 when the cutscene ends.
