"Full-auto ballistic rifle. Channels a fast fire rate through a lightweight mold for increased hip fire control and mobility."
— In-game description.

The KBAR-32 (referred to as AR57 in the game files) is a Kendall Ballistics bullpup assault rifle in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.


When all side missions are completed, the KBAR-32 unlocks High-Impact Rounds, which ensure no fall-off damage when firing at long ranges.


  • Weapon Type - Assault Rifle
  • Bullet Type - Ballistics
  • Special Features - None


The KBAR-32 is a fully automatic assault rifle unlocked at level 3. It has a fairly high fire rate of 731 RPM and an average damage profile. What's special about the KBAR-32 is that it has slightly faster movement speed than the other assault rifles. It has a movement speed of 96%. All other AR's have a movement speed of 94%. It has improved hip-fire spread as well. Due to these handling traits, the KBAR-32 can be considered a hybrid SMG-AR.

The Epic Invective variant has a higher headshot multiplier but a lower damage multiplier to the limbs. It essentially gives the player a free Hollow Point, but at the cost of lower limb damage. However, it is not possible to add Hollow Point on to double the effect.

The March 10th, 2017 patch updated the KBAR-32 to have a reduced 4-shot kill range, slightly hindering the mid range capabilities of the weapon.[1]
