The Barrett M468 is an assault rifle that appears in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction.
The Barrett M468 is a variant of the M4 carbine designed around the larger 6.8x43mm SPC cartridge. Like the M4, it operates via direct impingement.
In Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, the M468 is available for use by the player from the White Box Laboratory mission and onwards. This weapon was fielded to Black Arrow mercenaries and Third Echelon assault teams (but not Splinter Cells, who instead used the SC3000). In game, the M468 offers exceptional stopping power and accuracy at close to medium ranges. It is powerful enough to still kill helmet-wearing enemies in one shot. However, the accuracy and stopping power of the M468 is stunted dramatically at extreme distances, it's relativity large spread compared to G36C and SCAR-H makes it unsuitable for long range combat, the gun is not effective even when fired in bursts. With reflex sight, the M468 can mark 3 targets, while most other assault rifles can only mark 2, this and its suppressed ability make the M468 an excellent backup rifle for players like to stay stealthy, and its best to be used at close quarters.
