Design and Performance


The Assault Rifle is like the definition of all assault rifles but is outclassed by the Carbine Rifle in the game. It is based on the real-life Norinco Type 56-2, also known as the AK-56, which is very similar to the AK-47 and the AK-74. The shape and design of the gun are just like that of its real-life counterpart. It can be used with a scope, suppressor, flashlight, and grip. It has Picatinny rails for the same. It does not feature any wooden panels and has a full metal finish.


(A fully upgraded Assault Rifle in first person perspective)


The Assault Rifle is an excellent weapon for close and medium range encounters and gunfights. It can be fitted with a scope, grip, suppressor, and a flashlight that makes it usable in a wide range of scenarios. It is not accurate while shooting at long ranges even with a scope. The grip, however, makes it stable enough to spray at medium ranges. It takes three shots to the body with armor to kill a target. Pedestrians are taken down in two shots to the body at medium range and one shot at close range. An extended clip can be used with this weapon which increases the ammunition capacity to 60 rounds.
