The G-MAL is a long gun in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
It appears in the multiplayer and singleplayer.
This gun's type of shooting is similar to the FAL – it features a red dot scope and it fires in three round bursts. It has high accuracy compared to other long guns which gives players a bigger advantage in mid to long range firefights, however, its relatively slower rate of fire and lack of blindfire accuracy make it lack in close encounters. This gun is basically the Micro Galil, an Israeli made assault rifle. It takes 3 bursts of body shots and 2 bursts of head shots to kill someone . For weapon balance, this should be used with an automatic handgun such as the Arm Micro.

Accuracy weapon mod and purchase in store
- The G-MAL is most effective when used as a self defense or long range support weapon.
- If your target is moving, left to right to you, strafing while firing will allow you to get some shots in.
- If your target is heading in your direction, aim at their midsection and fire (without strafing) or strafe aim around their head.
- Sometimes, the G-MAL is easily countered by fully automatic weapons, so it may be better to escape confrontation and wait to gain an advantage.
- If possible, avoid using the G-MAL with blindfire, regardless of the blindfire accuracy mod being available.
- The G-MAL is excellent for protecting or assisting team mates, as the three round burst will damage opponents and possibly distract them from their original target.
- It has the same firing sound as the Raffica Pistol .
- The G-MAL is widely criticized as an overpowered weapon, as it has high stopping power, has little recoil, and is effective at most ranges.
- In real life, the Micro Galil (inspiration for G-MAL) and the AKS-74U (inspiration for KAL-7 ) would be almost exactly the same performance wise, as they both shoot small-caliber rounds (5.56x45mm and 5.45x39mm, respectively), have the same barrel length (210mm, or 8.26 in), and even have similar rates of fire (630-750 rounds/min and 700 rounds/min, respectively); also, in real life the Micro Galil has limited accuracy at longer ranges, so it would be advisable to use it the way the KAL-7 is used in the game: close-quarters blind firing.
