The Assault Rifle is a two-handed automatic weapon.


The Assault Rifle (and its magazine) can only be obtained by crafting it with a Security Officer Job Icon.png Security Officer having unlocked the Talent warlord.png Warlord talent.

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 toolbelt slot, which hangs it from the character's back.


The Assault Rifle is held with both hands and must be loaded with an Assault Rifle Magazine.png Assault Rifle Magazine to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Right-click to take aim, then by Left 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. Depleted magazines cannot be refilled. Deconstructing an empty magazine yields nothing.
