The Assault Rifle is a heavy weapon in the Fear Effect series.
The Assault Rifle holds a high amount of ammunition, requiring minimal reloads. Despite its average firepower compared to other weapons, it fires at such a fast rate that its quite deadly against any foe. Ammo for the Assault Rifle is scarcely found, and it can only target a single enemy at a time.
The Assault Rifle works well in any situation against a single enemy and in areas where gunfire draws the attention of multiple enemies. It dispatches foes quickly, but since ammo is scarce it should primarily be used during situations where a quick kill is required or during boss fights.
