N.O.V.A.Edit

Weap big assault

The assault rifle as it appears in the 1st NOVA.

CampaignEdit

The assault rifle has a high rate of fire but each round inflicts low damage. However, the Assault rifle can be use more effectively as a Battle Rifle type weapon. By firing in in one or two shot bursts, the player can improve accuracy, and overall damage output. This method works out to medium and even moderately long ranges, while yielding three, even four Xenos kills per mag. ==

MultiplayerEdit

In N.O.V.A., the assault rifle is arguably one of the best short-medium ranged weapons in in multiplayer due to its high rate of fire and reasonable accuracy at close range.

N.O.V.A. 2Edit

Weapon2

As seen in N.O.V.A. 2

CampaignEdit

In the campaign, the Assault Rifle is an assault rifle resembling a scaled up submachine gun. As with N.O.V.A. 1, the assault rifle shares the same low damage ratings with the pistol. Making up for this, is the high rate of fire. Burst-firing this gun can improve accuracy, but many players tend to go with the Shotguns' one-hit-KO power at close ranges. Overall a good weapon for early levels and for backup. The high rate of fire helps for almost immediate kills, even though it has low damage.

MultiplayerEdit

The assault rifle is the first weapon you gain. It is unlocked immediately at level 1. It has fairly good accuracy and if firing headshots, can take down a fully shielded enemy with 6 to 10 bullets. The normal magazine size is 40 rounds.

N.O.V.A. 3 Edit

Assault3

N.O.V.A. 3 AR

CampaignEdit

The gun is rather inaccurate when fired from the hip, however, when scoped the weapon is very accurate and has a high damage rate. It is a very dependable weapon throughout the campaign.

MultiplayerEdit

The assault rifle is the first weapon you gain. It is unlocked immediately at level 1. It is not recommended to move so much when firing this gun and strongly recommended to aim down the sights if you are going to take down a target at range. Firing from the hip has proven to be mildly inaccurate when running.

Aim assist verdict : 6/10 possibly one of the few weapons most starting players can use effectively without aim assist, and remains the most dependable weapon alongside plasma rifle
