— Battlelog description
The MTAR-21 is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters expansion and is unlocked upon the completion of the My Own Terminator assignment. It was first seen in the killfeed of the Donya Fortress Gameplay trailer.
The weapon is more suited to very close range engagements, with the highest rate of fire of all the carbines. It suffers from considerable recoil and low damage at range, as well as poor accuracy, limiting its ability to perform at medium ranges. It is very effective as a hipfire weapon at closer ranges, especially if using a laser sight, killing in four shots to the average PDW's five shots. However, it must be noted the longest reload time of any available carbine at 3 seconds if reloaded with a bullet chambered, meaning that players must be highly aware of their surroundings while using this weapon.
Also, it has the second highest bullet velocity of any carbine (the M4A1 Carbine having the highest), although the high recoil and poor accuracy prevent it from being effective at long ranges.
Battlefield Premium members may equip the Airman or Woodland Oak camouflages upon the completion of the MTAR-21 Specialist assignment.

The MTAR-21 is a fan favorite weapon that was brought back from Battlefield 3 with the China Rising DLC in Battlefield 4. Given its high rate of fire, people have always enjoyed using it. Well, not so fast. Before you can unlock this gun, there are several things you must do.
By gaining access to the China Rising DLC and reaching a rank of 10, you will unlock the Multi Talent assignment. Notice we didn't say complete? Those are the requirements just to try and complete it.
Once the assignment is open, here's what you need to do.
- Get a kill with a Sniper Rifle in a round
- Get a kill with an Assault Rifle in a round
- Get a kill with an LMG in a round
- Get a kill with a hand grenade in a round
It should be noted that all of these must be completed in the same round. However, it does not have to be on a China Rising map.
