Fire in bursts

Shoot in short bursts to keep your accuracy and save your bullets. When engaging in long-range battles, shoot two or three bullets to suppress recoil.

Engage your enemies at mid-range.

Don't be afraid to pressure enemies and make sure to connect your shots. An Assault Rifle can easily rip through an enemy's shield and their health.

Watch Out for Higher Rarity Versions

There is a ridiculous jump in damage between the lower rarities and the Epic and Legendary versions of the Assault Rifle AKA "SCAR Rifle". Get a hold of one of them and you can easily melt enemies.
