The Assault Rifle is a Handheld Ranged Weapon in Barotrauma.


The Assault Rifle is a two-handed long-range, medium-size weapon. It shoots rounds from a detachable Magazine. The Assault Rifle possesses a high amount of firepower and is fairly accurate at long ranges for characters with an adequate Weapon Skill.

It can be crafted by a Security Officer with the Rifleman talent unlocked, it can't be bought at any Outpost.


The Assault Rifle is held with both hands and must be loaded with an Assault Rifle Magazine to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Mouse Right-click to take aim, then by Left Mouse Left-clicking to shoot/use. Being an automatic weapon, the Assault Rifle can be fired continuously until the Magazine runs out of rounds by holding Left Mouse.

  • It has a single slot for ammo which can contain one magazine (20 rounds).
  • Due to the Assault Rifle's size, it cannot be carried in the hotbar. It can only be held in both hands, or in the Gear slot, which hangs it from the character's back.
  • Like every two-handed weapon, the Rifle has a Flashlight slot. The inserted Flashlight automatically turns on whenever the weapon is drawn.
