Assault Rifles are the hallmark weapon of any conflict, and should be used with enthusiasm at all times.
  — Weapon Class Description 


The G36E is one of the most popular AR's due to having extremely well-balanced statistics that can dominate most ranges.

An Assault Rifle (abbreviated "AR") is the most commonly used weapon type in the game, due to its balanced accuracy, rate of fire, and damage.

Firing Modes

Some ARs have two or more firing modes. Automatic fire is found in all ARs, useful for Close-Quarters Battle because the gun fires continuously without the need of letting go of the trigger. Burst mode is found in some ARs and there is a noticeable tightening of the crosshairs and reduced spread when bursting. Single fire is somewhat rare, found only in the K2 and the M14. While moving or spraying, an AR has the same recoil as in full automatic mode. Tap firing in automatic mode is more useful against targets in Sniper Rifle range than burst fire, due to the increased recoil on the second and third shots in a burst. However, not all AR's have two firing modes: the M4A1, SG550, AK-47, G36E, AK-74U, and M4A1 CQBR, to name only a few, do not have burst or single fire mode.


ARs perform well at short to medium range, with the exception of three hybrid Sniper Rifle/Assault Rifles that also excel at long range: the NX Rare REC7 Rangers and M417 SB only obtainable through the Transport Locker and various MYST crates, and the NX Standard XM8 obtainable through the Shop. Also available in the shop is the M14 Hunter, which combines the M14's core strengths (accuracy and damage) with the long-range L96A1 scope for a formidable long-range combat weapon.

These guns have Sniper Rifle scopes similar to the L96A1 or M24's scopes or even unique scopes like the G36E family and the L85A1 MOD. This enables them to have a Sniper Rifle's range with the advantage of having automatic fire for CQB. The ACOG TA1 Scope incorporates a range finder to help determine if a target is out of the gun's effective range. Most ARs have an effective range up to 80 ACOG units.


The recoil of different assault rifles is varied. Typically, assault rifles within the same "family" often have the same recoil pattern. Recoil patterns may consist of the gun moving straight up with each shot, zig zagging, tracking side to side, etc. The recoil pattern is an important aspect of an assault rilfe to be considered, as it makes the difference between a gun that is reliable and easy to use and one that is uncontrollable in the heat of battle.  A recoil pattern that is easy to control for one player may not be useable at all by another.
