The Assault SMG is a submachine gun in GTA 5. It is based on the FN P90 which is a personal defense weapon. The Assault SMG has an elevated Picatinny rail above the barrel on which a scope can be fitted. This weapon can also be fitted with a suppressor and a flashlight. The Assault SMG is one of the first bullpup weapons offered in the Grand Theft Auto series. NOOSE Tactical Response Unit and the FIB use this weapon against the player.
The Assault SMG is a really good gun for close range and heated gunfights. The fire rate, attachments, reload time and range are all factors that make this gun ideal for these types of gunfights. It takes a few bullets to take down targets with armor. However, headshots are instant kills. Engines catch fire rather slowly but this is justified for this weapon as it has an even slower fire rate than the other SMGs in the game. This weapon deals slightly more damage than the Micro SMG and SMG. The damage caused by this weapon does not reduce with distance, hence it can be useful in taking out helicopter rotors or when used with the protagonist's ability to slow down time while shooting.

There is a beta render of the Assault SMG that exists in the game files. This model was apparently based on the P90 like the TBOGT iteration, but was altered with a bullpup configuration similar to that of the FN F2000, with the overhead area replaced by a shell ejector.
The HUD icon in the Xbox 360/PS3 versions of the game shows the Assault SMG with a magazine. Oddly, the HUD icon in the enhanced version has the magazine missing.
If the Assault SMG is discharged in stealth mode in a burst of 2-3 bullets, the fire rate will increase seemingly similar to that of a minigun.
The Assault SMG in The Ballad of Gay Tony has etchings on the sighting component that reads "P90 Cal 5.7x28", while the one in Grand Theft Auto V has marking on the front section that reads "STI ACB 6×30mm", which is a fictional cartridge.
