The Type 97B is a bullpup assault rifle and a compact variant of the Type 97. It offers a below-average damage per shot, a relatively low rate of fire, and poor effective range, making it somewhat less effective when compared to other Warbox assault rifles. It also lacks the ability to equip any grip attachments, further decreasing its effectiveness. It does offer good damage drop and improved damage multipliers to the limbs, making it somewhat useful in combat.
It features a unique Leupold Deltapoint sight with 1.3x magnification and a faster scope-in speed.
