The Galil ACE is an assault rifle developed by Colombia and Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) and manufactured by IWI and also Indumil. The ACE family assault rifles are based upon the reliable mechanism of the famous Galil assault rifle. The ACE incorporates enhanced human engineering and ergonomics with the demands of the modern battlefield. It chambers 5.56 x 45mm NATO, sporting a barrel length of 460mm.
The ACE 23 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 4 for the Assault class. It is unlocked upon completing the Assault Expert gold tier assignment. This weapon is arguably one of the most versatile assault rifles in the game, and along with its little brother, the ACE 21 CQB, easily one of the most popular. Having a fire rate of 770 RPM, it is capable of effectively competing in close quarters. This weapon is suited well for mid-range engagements as well, due to its easy to control recoil pattern. Controlled bursts at longer ranges are recommended to help maintain accuracy. The addition of stability-enhancing attachments such as the Muzzle Brake coupled with the Stubby Grip or Angled Grip with Heavy Barrel greatly extend the weapon's already decent effectiveness beyond close and mid-ranges even further. The weapon is balanced compared to other Assault Rifles by having an above average reload time when empty.
It is rather similar to the M416, having a larger magazine, slightly higher firerate, and a slightly higher muzzle velocity, although the M416 has a faster reload, is slightly more controllable, and has a lower spread increase per shot.
By obtaining kills with the ACE 23, the player unlocks Chinese attachments, while the US and Russian variants can only be unlocked through Battlepacks.
The ACE 23 cannot equip any underbarrel weapons.
