Assault Rifle Overview
Balanced Weapon Class
The Assault Rifle is one of, if not, the most balanced weapon class in the game. It is highly effective when used at mid range and is able to deal decent damage against enemies.Check out Best Assault Rifle List & Setup Guide here!
Assault Rifles are easy to use since they fire automatically (some have burst fire modes), and have average to low recoil. They are great for players just starting out in the game, and serve as a weapon to help them gain experience.
Fire In Bursts At Far Away Targets
Fire in short bursts at far away targets instead of holding down the trigger. This helps you maintain your accuracy and negate the Assault Rifle's recoil.
Reload When Not Engaging Enemies
Keep your weapon fully reloaded so you are ready when you face an enemy! You don't want to run out of bullets when you are in the middle of a gunfight!
Switch To Another Weapon If You Empty Your Clip
You can switch to your secondary weapon if you run out of bullets. It is much faster to do this rather than reload your Assault Rifle.
