The MAS 36 is a French bolt-action rifle featured in Call of Duty 2: Big Red One and Call of Duty: WWII.

Call of Duty 2: Big Red One[edit | edit source]

"French semi-auto[sic] rifle adopted its name from the plant it is produced at: Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Etienne. 7.5mm caliber 5-round box."
— Bonus Materials Weapons description


The MAS 36 (referred to as MAS36 Rifle in the HUD) is a rifle only available during the mission "Baptism By Fire" in the hands of Vichy French forces. Like other bolt-action rifles in the game, it is quite powerful: it will kill in a single shot from a hit to the chest upwards. It excels at long, and to a certain extent, medium range, but, it is tough to use in close quarters, especially when up against submachine guns. Thus, it is advisable that the player also carry the very common MAS 38 with them. Its iron sights consist of a rear aperture sight aligned with a three-pronged frontal piece, quite similar to the Lee-Enfield in other Call of Duty titles.
