The Assault Rifle is a medium to long range weapon with moderate damage and recoil. The magazine holds 30 rounds in most variants.

There are multiple variations: standard, Burst, and Scoped, though all are referred to simply as "Assault Rifles". The scoped rifle has a 20-round magazine instead of 30, while the Burst fires in 3-round bursts.

Many players prefer to call the epic and legendary Assault rifles:SCARS as the name comes from the golden-like shade of the gun and its power, as some players and gamers would say it’s the holy grail of the game itself (arguably) but there are many other weapons which join the competition such as snipers as they could deal great damage to opponents if they get headshot attacks.

Trivia Edit

  • The Common through Rare AR's appear to be based off the M16 rifle, while the Epic and Legendary variants are based off of the SCAR, most likely the SCAR-L. Because of this, the community often calls these weapons by these names.
    • Likewise, the Epic and Legendary variants of the Burst AR are often called "FAMASes", do to the resemblance to the FAMAS, while the Common through Rare variants resemble an IMI Galil.
    • Finally, the Scoped AR seems to loosely resemble an AK-12 or H&K G36 that has been modified to act more like a DMR (designated marksman rifle), which combines certain elements of both assault rifles and sniper rifles.
  • The Epic and Legendary models for the Assault Rifle have several gashes and scars cut into them, a reference to the gun which the model is based on.
