While I do think that this idea may get shot down, I think that XM8 and some of its variants may be good material for new weapons. To start off, I will give as much stats that I can come up so far with the assault rifle variant.

And that is all I have for this on stats so far. Again, there are at least five variants of this weapon: LMG, Compact Carbine, Carbine with XM32o Grenade Launcher (I don’t think this one will ever get in), DMR, and the Automatic Rifle (the one that I gave the stats to). Please leave comments as to what kind of adjustments should be made for the weapon, and give out some logical ideas for its range, recoil, walk speed, accuracy, and damage.
Or you could ridicule me for being an idiot or something, idk.
Edit: I’ve done some changes to the stats, as well as changed the picture to something that didn’t include a grenade launcher as an attachment. I also added another image to show an example of what the iron sights would look like.
