— In-game description

The FN FAL is a Belgium battle rifle that takes twenty 7.62×51mm NATO cartridges in a FN FAL Mag. in DayZ.

The FN FAL cartridges deal high damage of 8000 blood, have moderately-high recoil, and when fired, have an audible range of up to 180 meters from the shooter's position. The effective range of this weapon is up to 400 meters.

The FN FAL can kill a player in up to two shots to the body, or one shot to the head, as can all weapons and ammunition in DayZ. The FN FAL can kill a zombie in one shot, but viral zombies require more shots to kill.

The FN FAL is a very rare battle rifle that has a 0.87% chance of spawning only at Helicopter Crash Sites.[1] The spawn chance is equal to 87 out of 10,000.

The FN FAL has black and grey finish, and no attachments. The zeroing of the iron sights cannot be adjusted and are most likely fixed at 300 meters.

The FN FAL's magazines are also very rare, requiring the user to conserve ammunition however they can.
