The Assault Rifle is an Assault Weapon, one of the standard weapons a trooper can start with. Its decent damage and stats make it a good weapon choice to start as a Decoy Trooper or Assault Trooper. Like any other assault rifles, it should be utilised in conjunction with Speed and Range upgrades.
- If a trooper of level 6 or higher has lost his helmet, it will appear back on his head when reloading an automatic weapon. This is only a graphical glitch, as the helmet will be gone again when the soldier finishes reloading.
- Visually resembles a derelict World War II era MP-38/MP-40, which is in fact a submachine gun.
- It's not the only early 20th century weapon seen in the game, which could probably mean that one of initial concepts was placed in a corresponding era, hence some of the stylistic elements, but then they revoked it in favor of the Modern era, giving a strange looking visual mix.
