Not to be confused with the MTAR-21

The SAR-21 in real life.

The SAR-21 (Singapore Assault Rifle - 21st Century) is a bullpup assault rifle designed and manufactured in Singapore. First revealed and subsequently adopted by the Singapore Armed Forces in 1999, it was designed and developed over a four-year period and was intended to replace the locally license-built M16S1 by the Singaporean Ministry of Defense (MINDEF), Singapore Army, and the Chartered Industries of Singapore. 

Many of its design features are directly intended to counter the weaknesses of the M16S1 as encountered operationally by some infantrymen. The SAR-21 has been adopted by numerous countries.

The SAR-21 is an assault rifle featured in Battlefield 4

It has the highest base stability and lowest recoil of any weapon in the game. To compensate for this, however, it also has the lowest rate of fire of any weapon in the Assault class, making the SAR-21 more difficult to use up close. This low rate of fire does have a few advantages, though; the ADS spread takes much longer to reach its maximum spread, allowing for a longer duration of sustained, accurate fire. The low firerate also conserves ammo, making the SAR-21 best suited for medium to long-range engagements.


The SAR-21 is unlocked by completing the Bronze assignment in the mission Singapore by scoring 11,000 points. It equipped with a Coyote, Magnifier and Heavy Barrel. It sports an ERDL Woodland finish.


The SAR-21 is the third unlockable assault rifle in the Assault Class, requiring 19,000 Assault Rifle score.

It can equip the UGL Rail to allow to mount the M320 grenade launcher, but not the M26 MASS.

The SAR-21 has very light recoil which makes it one of the most stable Assault Rifles in the game. Any inaccuracies lie within its side-to-side recoil, which can be mitigated using the compensator attachment. 

It is quite usable with any optic, including the longer-ranged options. Which one you choose is all based on your personal preference. 

Its lower rate-of-fire means it's a great option for Mid- to Long-Range engagements but can be outpaced in close quarters by many high fire rate weapons such as the M416 or the FAMAS.

After the Fall patch, the missing bullpup modifier is added to the SAR-21, allowing tighter hipfire accuracy and increased movement speed when aiming down the sights.


Trivia Edit

  • The SAR-21 shares its iron sights with the M416.
  • The SAR-21 portrayed in Battlefield 4 is similar to the Modular Mounting System (MMS) variant, but it has longer overall length and longer barrel compared to its real-life counterpart.
  • The SAR-21 is the only Singaporean made weapon with the U-100 MK5 Light Machine Gun in the game.
