Rapid Fire is an attachment featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It is the replacement for Double Tap and has exactly the same function; the delay between shots is decreased, effectively increasing the weapon's rate of fire, as well as recoil. As with most Submachine Guns in the Call of Duty series, on the Nintendo Wii, it has little, if any, effect.

Rapid Fire is unlocked when the Marksman I challenge is completed for any submachine gun. Obtaining 30 kills with the Rapid Fire attachment will unlock the Akimbo attachment. It increases rate of fire by around 25%. In addition to indirectly increasing recoil by giving the weapon less time to recenter between shots, it also reduces centerspeed.[1]

Rapid Fire is available for all submachine guns. It is the same as its Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 counterpart. It is the only way that base damage-per-second can be increased in any way in Call of Duty: Black Ops due to the removal of the Stopping Power perk, and is therefore very popular on most submachine guns. It increases the rate of fire by 33%.

Rapid Fire is nearly identical in performance to previous installments. However, the increase in rate of fire is 25% (like in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2), as opposed to the 33% increase in Call of Duty: Black Ops. It's unlocked at Weapon Level 11 for the submachine guns and is also available for the light machine guns at Weapon Level 14. Two burst-fire assault rifles unlock Rapid Fire at Weapon Level 12: the M16A4 and Type 95, and one semi-automatic, the MK14.

On the M16A4 and Type 95, Rapid Fire increases how fast the burst is fired, which means that bullets have tighter grouping. However, the delay between bursts remains unchanged at 0.2 seconds. Rapid Fire on the MK14 is unique; instead of increasing rate of fire, it increases the MK14's firecap significantly, since it is semi-automatic. For assault rifles, Rapid Fire significantly increases their effectiveness at long range; but for submachine guns, this attachment makes them lethal at close range but harder to use at a distance. When used with light machine guns, Rapid Fire increases their deadliness at medium to long range.

The Rapid Fire attachment returns to Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The attachment is only available to submachine guns and light machine guns. It increases the rate of fire by 51% on submachine guns, and by 33% on light machine guns. However, as a downside, not only does the attachment increase recoil, but it now decreases range (60% for submachine guns, 40% for light machine guns), and increases hip fire spread (30% for submachine guns, 20% for light machine guns).

Rapid Fire returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified. It can now be used on shotguns as well.

"Increased fire rate."
— In-game description

Rapid Fire reappears in Call of Duty: Ghosts, available once again to submachine guns and light machine guns. It increases the fire rate on compatible weapons by ~17%[2], which is a lower amount than in previous games. Unlike its Black Ops II counterpart, where rate of fire was greatly increased at the cost of reduced range and increased hipfire spread, Rapid Fire in Ghosts does not reduce range or decrease hipfire accuracy but it does increase recoil by 5%. In Extinction mode, it is possible to mount the Rapid Fire attachment on assault rifles as well (except the SC-2010, due to it being semi-automatic in this game mode).

Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareEdit

Rapid Fire

MultiplayerEdit

Rapid Fire returns in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and increases rate of fire by 25%, the recoil by 20%, the hip-fire spread by 20%, and decreases the maximum damage range by 15%. Rapid Fire can be equipped on all Submachine Guns and Heavy Weapons, except the EM1 and the EPM3.

Rapid Fire has several downsides to its usage, so players must be cautious about selecting the attachment on their weapon, as the recoil will be largely increased, the hip-fire cone will be much larger, and the maximum damage range is made shorter. The attachment can be seen as extremely valuable on weapons with a flatter damage profile, such as the MP11, the Ohm, or the Ameli, as said weapons deal similar damage outside of the maximum damage range.

The ASM1 Reckless variant has integrated Rapid Fire by default, and the KF5 Breakneck variant is incapable of equipping the attachment.

Exo SurvivalEdit

In addition to submachine guns, Rapid Fire in Exo Survival mode can be attached to two assault rifles as well (Bal-27 and HBRa3), but as a downside it is unavailable to be attached to the XMG or Pytaek.

Note: Rapid Fire doesn't increase the first fired rounds of the ASM1, SN6, Bal-27 and HBRa3.

TriviaEdit

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

  • Rapid Fire's Create-A-Class icon is also used as an emblem unlocked for completing the challenge "Mach 5."

Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit

Call of Duty Black Ops IIEdit

  • Unlike other installments, the attachment is previewed with a trigger, instead of a burst of bullets.

  2. The delay between shots is multiplied by 0.85, which means the fire rate is increased by ≈ 17.647%
  3. Rapid Fire is integrated to the ASM1 "Reckless", and the fire rate of this variant has a base value of 759 RPM.
