    o What to Use?- If you are new to Online Play, and are wondering what to use,
    try to play with all of the Weapons, and see which one fits you best. If you
    are having trouble figuring out which one is best for you, here are a few
    highly popular choices:
    
    
    Primary:   Colt M16A2 Assault Rifle
    Secondary: IMI Desert Eagle .50AE
    Item 1:    Gas Mask
    Item 2:    WP Grenade
    
    Primary:   H&K G3A3 Assault Rifle
    Secondary: H&K Mark 23
    Item 1:    Frag Grenades
    Item 2:    Flashbang Grenades
    
    Primary:   H&K PSG-1 Sniper Rifle
    Secondary: IMI Desert Eagle .50AE
    Item 1:    Flashbang Grenades
    Item 2:    Gas Mask
    
    Primary:   FN M249 SAW
    Secondary: H&K Mark 23
    Item 1:    Gas Mask
    Item 2:    Tear Gas Grenades
    
    Those are just a few of the popular Weapons. Go and try out a Kit that works
    the best for you. Here is mainly what I use:
    
    Primary:   Steyr AUG-A1 / Colt M-16A2
    Secondary: IMI Desert Eagle / H&K Mark 23
    Item 1:    Gas Mask 
    Item 2:    Tear Gas Grenades / Frag Grenades
    
    
    o Capacity- The Magazine Capacity of a Weapon is, of course, how many rounds of
    Ammunition the Weapons Magazine can hold. Here is a tip: After pressing 'X' to
    reload, press 'X' again to reload one more time. You should notice that the
    rounds in your Magazine have increased by one (1). Take the Steyr AUG for
    example; it has a Capacity of 30 rounds in its Magazine. Now, reload after a
    refreshing firefight and you now have 30 rounds. Reload once more, and you have
    31 rounds in your Magazine, thus making 30 + 1, or 31. Now you're thinking,
    "What is one bullet going to do?" Well, one bullet in Rainbow Six 3 can be the
    difference between a Hostage being killed, or the Terrorist aiming the gun at
    his/her head being killed. Also, note that if you have 13 bullets in a magazine
    and you reload to get a fresh 30 round magazine, you will eventually run into
    that magazine with 13 bullets in it, so think twice before you reload.
    
    
    o Ammunition Types- The Weapons of Rainbow Six 3 are ALL real-world Weapons,
    which the majority of them are used by Counter-Terrorist Teams, and Special
    Forces units around the world. Since the Weapons are real, the Ammunition they
    fire is also real, and in effect, acts real. Fire a 9mm round at a door;
    nothing happens. Fire a 7.62x51mm NATO round at a door, and the round will
    pierce through, and kill the unlucky Terrorist standing behind it. Short Range
    situations require Ammunition that will take down the Target, but not pierce
    through the Target, and hit a close by friendly. For Long Range situations, the
    Ammunition has to have enough Range to reach out and touch someone, but enough
    power to take out the threat quickly.
    
    Refer to the below Chart for info regarding Ammunition Characteristics:

    The Navigation System compromised of a combination of letters, and a symbol
    (the Tilde (~) key). All of my future FAQs will include this new system, making
    for an easier, and more helpful FAQ experience.
    
    Here is how it works:
    
    Look in the Table of Contents for a specific section, find the code and do the
    following:
    
    Press CTRL and F on a PC, or the Special Key and F on a Macintosh. A search box
    will then appear; search for the code, and you will be taken to that section.
    This system is fairly new, so it is bound to have bugs in it. Please inform me
    of any errors in the FAQ, or with the system itself. My E-Mail is in the Legal
    Section of the FAQ.

    (13.4 kg) make it one of the most accurate Sniper Rifles in Rainbow's arsenal.

    rifle being Suppressed by default.

    No UNOFFICIAL Websites may use this FAQ. Do not bother to E-Mail
    me asking to use this FAQ on your Website, unless you meet specific
    requirements* as I WILL say NO! The reason behind this is the fact
    that some people are too lazy to go to GameFAQs to get the latest
    version of my FAQ, and when readers E-mail me, it causes problems.
    For example, in one of my older FAQs, someone told me that my FAQ
    was wrong about a certain topic, where as it had been corrected
    about two months before, so I decided that I shouldn't let people
    host my FAQs when they can't keep them updated. It's not my job to
    send out a Zip file every time I update a FAQ, to two or three other
    hosts.
    
    * I.E., not having a steady amount of bandwidth, visitors, or other
      conditions, which are subject to determination by me.
