Assault Rifles are versatile weapons which can be used in many different situations and at a variety of engagement distances. Each Assault Rifle has a number of small quirks that make it unique, and knowing how to best utilize these quirks can help you to get the most out of your rifle.

General

  • Try to tap-fire or use an alternative fire mode when engaging enemies at extreme distances. It is difficult to control the automatic fire of an Assault Rifle when engaging far-away enemies.
  • Be careful when reloading. Though most rifles have a relatively short reload, it is very possible that an enemy may catch you midway through a reload if you attempt one at the wrong time. If this happens, simply reload-cancel by left clicking. This will save your life in many situation if you remember to.
  • Knowing when and where to engage a target is the key to winning a gun fight. Pacing your shots correctly and precisely will help kill an enemy a lot quicker, and preserve ammo.

Weapon Specific

AN-94

Damage Range Accuracy Fire Rate
AN94Slim 32-24 50 max -> 120 min AN-94graph General: 39

Hip: 57

Sight: 25

Burst: 1800

Auto: 600

Unlocked at Rank 10, the AN-94 is unusual for its default 2-round burst mode, that fires at a very high rate.

  • The defining feature of the AN-94 is its 1800-RPM 2-round burst mode. Learning to use it effectively is imperative to using the AN-94 well.
    • The full-auto firing mode also fires a quick 2-round burst at the beginning, which gives the user an advantage in a gunfight at most ranges if the user can land those 2 shots, as at long range, they are very accurate like the 2-round burst firemode, and at close range, the quick burst of bullets improves the high TTK of this gun in close quarters. 
  • The AN-94 can shine at almost all ranges, though in very close quarters it is outgunned by high-rate-of-fire automatic weapons, even on burst mode.

Weapon Match-Ups

Weapon Strategy
AN94Slim
AN-94
vs
AK12Slim
Automatic Assault Rifle
The AN-94 is considerably superior to automatic assault rifles at medium-to-long range, due to its burst fire nature. This means that, if you encounter an enemy using an Assault Rifle at a moderate distance, it is relatively uncomplicated to use the burst-mode to kill them before they can get in effective range. That being said, some assault rifles can shred you at very close range faster than even the AN-94 can fire in burst mode, so be wary.
AN94Slim
AN-94
vs
M16A4Slim
Burst-Fire Assault Rifle
The AN-94 has a very high rate of fire in burst-mode, but pays for this with decreased damage and range. This means that close-range work with the AN-94 will be more profitable than with other burst-mode weapons, like the M16A4, but difficulty will be encountered at a longer range when facing another burst-mode weapon.
AN94Slim
AN-94
vs
MP5KSlim
Compact Personal Defense Weapon
Despite its high rate-of-fire, the AN-94's burst delay means that very-close-quarters battles can result in disaster if faced with someone using a compact personal defense weapon that fires at a high rate in fully-automatic. Be wary of contesting an MP5K, MP7 or MAC-10 user at point-blank range.
AN94Slim
AN-94
vs
UMP45Slim
Personal Defense Weapon
The AN-94's cartridge makes it considerably more powerful at medium range than weapons like the UMP45 or MP5, but those weapons have the advantage of very low recoil that means some mid-range encounters can be lost if one's aim is not spot on. Be wary with closing with a PDW user in any event.
AN94Slim
AN-94
vs
M60Slim
High-Capacity Light Machine Gun
Like all Assault Rifles, the sheer volume of fire that weapons like the M60 can produce means that contesting someone using this type of weapon at medium to close range can result in problems. Rather, it is better to use the AN-94's better accuracy to get the drop on someone using a sluggish Light Machine Gun and kill them before they can bring their superior firepower to bear. Alternatively, closing to very-close range can allow the AN-94 user to kill a high-capacity Light Machine Gun user using the AN-94's superior fire rate in burst mode to land 2 bursts to the head, which will kill the opponent quicker than they kill you, though this is a risky tactic.

vs
ColtLMG
Magazine-Fed Light Machine Gun
The AN-94 has issues, like most Assault Rifles, with fighting most Magazine-Fed Light Machine Guns, especially higher-ranked ones such as the RPK-74, due to their superior firepower and magazine size. However, similarly to Belt-Fed Light Machine Guns, the superior accuracy and fire-rate of the AN-94 can outperform most Light Machine Guns at close range. Be wary of confronting these enemies at medium range, however.

Anti-Weapon Strategy

  • The AN-94 values accuracy over rate of fire. Throwing off an AN-94 user's aim can go a long way towards preventing him from killing you.
  • An AN-94 player values predictability in his opponents in order to line up shots that will kill them. Try taking unconventional routes or using unconventional movement (sliding, going prone, etc.) when fighting an AN-94 user.
    • Try closing the range to point-blank where the AN-94's slight delay between bursts can lead to the death of its user, especially after the July 4th, 2017 update.

Suggested by Blackisle3122.

This configuration is optimized for combat at short or medium ranges - preferably in the area between those two. Overall, this configuration emphasizes aimed accuracy, with the Stubby Grip and Compensator working to decrease recoil while the Green Laser increases accuracy while aiming down the sight. This means that aiming down the sights at an enemy in a mid-range firefight is the most preferable situation with this configuration. However, should you find yourself in very close quarters combat, you may have trouble using this configuration since aiming down the sights at those ranges is difficult, and the Green Laser emphasizes aimed rather than hip accuracy.

Green Laser

Suggested by Ivan Clemente.

Due to the AN-94's low recoil, it is very possible to use it as a medium-to-long range sniping weapon. However, like all Assault Rifles, its low damage per shot means that you have to consistently hit enemies in order to kill them - switching to the laser-beam accurate fully automatic fire mode of the AN-94 can aid in this. The Rifle Scope aids in spotting enemies at medium-range, whilst the Angled Grip, Compensator, and Green Laser all aid in medium-to-long range shooting. However, as can be expected, this configuration suffers heavily in close-range engagements, unless you can manage to aim with a magnified scope at very close range.

AS VAL

Damage Range Accuracy Fire Rate
ASVALSlim 34-24 40 max -> 75 min AS VALgraph General: 25

Hip: 68

Sight: 38

Auto: 900

Unlocked at Rank 15, the AS VAL features an integral suppressor and is chambered in a special cartridge.

  • The AS VAL fires at a blistering rate of fire for an Automatic Assault Rifle. Be very careful with your trigger discipline if engaging more than one enemy; it is very possible to waste an entire magazine on one person.
    • Aim for close-quarters duels with enemies using slower-firing weapons when using the AS VAL. In this way, it can be thought of as a slightly beefier PDW.
  • Due to its integral suppressor, the AS VAL cannot take barrel attachments. This means it will always be suppressed.
    • Use this fact to your advantage to sneak around to the enemy's back area without him seeing you on the radar.

Weapon Match-Ups

Weapon Strategy
ASVALSlim
AS VAL
vs
AK12Slim
Automatic Assault Rifle
The AS VAL consistently outperforms almost every other automatic assault rifle at close range, but beyond that range has trouble with recoil control. If fighting enemies using automatic assault rifles, aim for very close-range encounters where the very high rate of fire of the VAL can kill the enemy before he has time to get many bullets on you.
ASVALSlim
AS VAL
vs
M16A4Slim
Burst-Fire Assault Rifle
The AS VAL will out perform a burst weapon at close engagement distances, but the further out the engagement is, the AS VAL will struggle a lot due to its low magazine size and sub par damage at range. It is not recommended to engage an opponent with a burst-fire weapon at medium to long rang engagements, as they can follow up shots a lot faster and more accurately than with the AS VAL.
ASVALSlim
AS VAL
vs
MP5KSlim
Compact Personal Defense Weapon
The AS VAL shoots at 900 rounds per minute, with a max of 34 damage. This means it can out perform sub machine guns at close quarters engagements, but due to its small magazine size, it will be difficult to engage more than one enemy. It's best to get a defensive position with lots of cover when engaging a scout with a PDW.

Anti-Weapon Strategy

  • Since the VAL fires so quickly, medium-to-long range engagements are definitely its weak point. Seek these engagements if fighting someone using an AS VAL.
  • Stay out of choke-points, doorways, and other easy places for a VAL user to target groups if you know one is lurking around.
  • Even if using Extended Magazines, AS VALs have to be reloaded quite often. Use this to your advantage by charging against someone you know has an empty magazine.

Suggested by Cyber627, modified by Jonasguy.

This configuration is designed, essentially, for point-blank range work. Oddly for the AS VAL, this configuration sacrifices the 10 extra bullets of the extended magazine for the laser attachment.
