The damage points of SCAR-L increase by only 2.5% but it still separates this weapon from AUG and M416. Besides, it allows the wielders to kill the enemy with a level-2 helmet in two accurate shots and a level-2 military vest in 4 shots which are fewer than the old SCAR-L and M416 by one shot.

Moreover, it's also better to engage in long-range combat. The damage drops due to the distance of the new SCAR-L decreases in update 2.1.

#2. Recoil Change

The good news for SCAR-L wielders in PUBG Mobile 2.1 is its reduced recoil. The developer team of PUBG Mobile announced that they slightly improved the recoil of SCAR-L to make it easier to control, especially in long-range combat.

After this change, SCAR-L has lower recoil than M416 which is known as the most stable AR in this game. The new SCAR-L has around 5% lower vertical recoil and 10% lower horizontal recoil than those of M416.

But the recoil patterns of SCAR-L are still more unpredictable, so it's still a bit harder to control. The smaller height and width of the new SCAR-L do not mean that it's more reliable than M416.

Bonus: New SCAR-L Vs M416

SCAR-L updates in PUBG Mobile 2.1 make it better now. It's more powerful than the old version of this gun and the current version of the M416. But a lot of players still trust M416 more because it's more reliable. You should try to master SCAR-L to play like a pro player.
