The Cobretti AR-70 Raptor automatic rifle was the basic assault rifle of GDI and Nod during the latter stages of the First Tiberium War. After the war's end, and Nod's defeat, it was supplanted by the M16 Mark II Pulse Rifle for GDI and Nod.
The weapon fires 6.8mm rounds from a compact 100 round drum magazine in either fully automatic, burst or single fire modes, up to 600 rounds per minute. It is very bulky for a rifle, but quite reliable. The relatively high mass helps to compensate for the high recoil that the high-velocity bullets produce when fired in fully automatic mode. The ammunition it fires is of the JHP variety and as such is very effective against unshielded targets or those wearing light body armor at best, but quite useless and ineffective against foes wearing heavier body armor.
A different variant was issued by GDI Commandos and Nod snipers. It featured a silencer and, a .50 caliber (12.7mm) ammunition, instead of 6.8mm rounds.
