The ARX 160 is an assault rifle featured the the last two games of the series.
This is an Assault Rifle usable by the Engineer. It has high damage and accuracy stats, as well as a decent range, but it is heavily limited by the fact it is Single Fire only, making it somewhat poor when it comes to damage over time.
This class of weapon can only be equipped by Engineers and Medics. It has a 3-round burst that maintains accuracy but limits firepower. The weapon has decent damage and mild bullet variation, it can be used as a middle-high range weapon for a more precise solider.
The Custom version of this weapon is called the Future Soldier, which has a 5-round burst instead of a 3 one, allowing for slightly higher damage output per click.
- The weapon depicted in SFH3 incorrectly fires in three/five-round bursts, as the real weapon can only fire in semi or full-auto.
- In SFH3, the custom name of the ARX 160, "Future Soldier", is a reference to the Soldato Futuro (English: Future Soldier) program of the Italian Armed Forces, with the aim to replace the then-standard Beretta AR70/90 from service.
