"Assault Weapons" are ranged weapons that come in burst-fire, semi-auto, automatic, scoped, suppressed, and heavy variants. All assault rifles use medium bullets as their choice of ammo and are extremely useful at medium and sometimes long range.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

All Assault Rifles can be obtained by Looting Chests or Supply Drops. They can also naturally appear as floor loot.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Weapon[edit | edit source]

Pressing "Fire" will successfully shoot out a bullet (The Burst Assault Rifle shoots THREE). Once shot, the weapons will lose some ammo and will have to be reloaded if it drops to zero. The average damage of all Assault Weapons is 33.375 damage. The Legendary Infantry Rifle deals the most damage in game dealing 44 damage.

The Minigun has to be charged up.

Tool[edit | edit source]

All Assault Weapons can destroy structures and are pretty effective to suppress a target.

Reloading[edit | edit source]

The average reloading time for all Assault Weapons is about 2.58. The Rare Light Machine Gun is the slowest weapon with 5 seconds to reload, while surprisingly the Legendary Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle is the fastest with 2.07 seconds.

Ammo Usage[edit | edit source]

All Assault Rifles use Medium Bullets for the ammo except for the Tactical Assault Rifle and the Minigun which uses Light Bullets as ammunition.

Magazine Size[edit | edit source]

Typically, assault rifles have an size of 30. The highest magazine for the class is 100 (Light Machine Gun) while the lowest is 8 (Infantry Rifle)

ADS[edit | edit source]

The Infantry Rifle has more zoom in than the other Assault Weapons. The reason is because this weapon is also somewhat a Sniper Rifle. All Assault Weapons can be aimed.

The crosshair for the weapons remains the same except when aiming with the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle or the Scoped Assault Rifle.

All Assault Weapons[edit | edit source]

There are a total of 8 (24 if counting all rarities) different types of Assault Weapons in the game. Four (11 if counting all rarities) of those Assault Weapons are vaulted. This is very insane because half of the Assault Rifles in the game have been vaulted.

Rarity Count:

  • 4 Common
  • 6 Legendary
  • 5 Uncommon
  • 7 Epic
  • 7 Rare
