The Assault Rifle is an automatic projectile weapon used by the Soldier class in Tribes: Ascend.

"The Assault Rifle is a good weapon to have in almost any situation." In-Game Description.


The Assault Rifle has a long range and a high concentration of bullets, allowing players to deal small damage to targets generally outside of ordinance range. It can deal moderately high damage to close up targets and thus can serve as a self-safe means to inflict damage in extremely tight corners.
