Solid, dependable and deadly. The Karak is a standard issue rifle in many Grineer platoons.
The Karak is an accurate Grineer assault rifle that is carried by Frontier Elite Lancers. It features high damage, high accuracy, and a good fire rate, offset by its fairly low magazine size and limited critical hit potential. Overall, it serves as a very solid rifle capable for any range of combat.
The Karak is a solid anti-Corpus weapon due to its slight bias towards Impact damage over Puncture and Slash damage. Consider adding Rupture and Bane of Corpus mods to further increase its effectiveness against them.
The Karak is a very versatile weapon, good at combating all enemies, but aside from its high Impact damage and rate of fire, it doesn't excel in anything.
The end of the bound strap on the midsection of the gun has movement/cloth physics like the Syandanas; it flaps loosely whilst moving and firing the weapon.
The rifle appears to be based off of the M4 Carbine, M16A4 or the AK-47 with a Grineer upper casing scheme, hence its name (Carbine and AK-47).
This is the first official automatic Grineer Assault Rifle introduced in the game (following the burst-fire Hind rifle), as the Grakata is considered to be a submachine gun and the Gorgon is more of a Light Machine Gun.
