The Assault Rifle is an automatic weapon in the Respawnables. It is the 2nd weapon available for purchase, and is the first weapon that can be bought using cash. It is unlocked at level 2 and costs 500 . It deals consistent, decent damage and allows you to move quite fast with the moderate agility it boasts. It has good range and accuracy and has a clip size of 28 bullets which can be upgraded to 42 bullets. This weapon is the only weapon that the player has to purchase to progress through Missions Mode.
The Assault Rifle is good for beginners that want to unlock a weapon, and honestly forget about the Rookie Machine Gun altogether. With the Assualt Rifle being the cheapest weapon in the game with the exception of the Rookie Machine Gun which is given to you for free, this weapon is a dream weapon for a beginner. Although the Assault Rifle has a really slow fire rate, it compensates for this by dealing more damage per second than the Rookie Machine Gun, as well as providing better range and accuracy when shooting at enemies. When using this weapon, take its range and accuracy into account to take out enemies from a good distance away.
It is a reliable beginner weapon which is able to deal consistent damage in mid-range combat, but its sluggish rate of fire can be easily avoided or even resisted if your opponent has damage resistant armour or powerful weapons. Nonetheless, it is a classic weapon that is capable of wiping out normal bots, big or small.
