A Japanese military firearm. It has low initial recoil. Ideal for mid-range engagements.
The Type 89 was introduced to replace the Type 64 and uses 5.56x45 NATO rounds instead of the 7.62x51 NATO rounds for a lower recoil. In Ironsight, this weapon features a nice range, very good recoil control and decent rate of fire, however, it suffers from having a lower mobiliy than other weapons in the class. Therefore it is recommended to play a bit slower in this fast paced game when using the Type 89, and you are not the best at capturing flags. When using the Type 89, close range weapons like SMGs are most likely to defeat you, therefore holding angles are not a bad idea.
