Lore[ | ]

The latest in a proud line of standard-issue assault rifles, the R-301 is as reliable, versatile, and easy-to-control as its forebears, the R-101 and R-201 SOAR. The series is almost as old as Frontier civilization - some say the first carbines were built on Earth - and have been a mainstay in every Frontier conflict.

Manufactured by the Lastimosa Armory and commissioned by the IMC, the R-301 is the successor to the R-101 and R-201 rifles from the Frontier War. In the years after the Battle of Typhon, the IMC felt a need to improve on their very successful and reliable R-201 platform. High volumes of data collected from the R-201 and the R-201-A2's internal CPU's indicated that most mechanical failures were due to the rifle frame's exposure to extreme elements which caused misfires and the occasional feed mechanism malfunction. The internal components have been revised with a lighter and stronger composite as the external framework has been strengthened with a composite metallic weave to better compensate for overheating and structural integrity. The piston system was removed overall and the bolt cycling mechanism is completely controlled by the R-301's integrated AI. What you have with this new and improved platform is a reliable and accurate rifle with minimal maintenance and a larger caliber.

Trivia[ | ]

Wrong Dynastic Cycle Colors

The bugged Dynastic Cycle skin.

  • The R in the weapon's model number references the game's developer, Respawn Entertainment. This is made more obvious by its weapon ID, RSPN-101.
  • The R-301 Carbine was the weapon used by ARES guards during the events of the Voidwalker cinematic.
  • The straight-bow trigger in many of the weapon skins visually resembles the CMC Triggers Flat Face drop-in trigger for the Remington 700, AR-15, and AK-47 real life weapons.
  • After Season 11 Season 11 started, the Dynastic Cycle skin became bugged and looked like a mix between it and its recolor, Legendary Recolor Retrocausality. Curiously, Legendary Recolor Retrocausality appeared in the Store one month later.
