Assault Rifles are select-fire rifles chambered for an intermediate cartridge. Assault Rifles are only usable by the Assault Class.
There are two sub-classifications of Assault Rifles:
- Automatic Assault Rifles can be fired in fully-automatic or semi-automatic modes. Weapons which have a burst-fire mode, but are not automatically set to it (such as the AK-12) are still classified as Automatic Assault Rifles.
- The Kalashnikov series, AS VAL, SCAR-L, AUG series, G36, M16A3, FAMAS, L85A2, Honey Badger and M231 are classified as Automatic Assault Rifles.
- Burst-Fire Assault Rifles can be fired in burst mode or semi-automatic modes.
- The AN-94 and M16A4 are classified as Burst-Fire Assault Rifles.
