MA5B Assault Rifle

Manual Description:

This rifle is gas-operated and magazine-fed. It fires 7.62mm armor-piercing rounds. Rate of fire is limited by a soldier's ability to aim, fire and change magazines. Short, controlled bursts are more accurate than fully automatic fire.

The MA5B's integrated computer displays round left in the magazine and the relative direction of the gas giant, Threshold, for point of reference. This feature is particularly useful for orienting you in areas where it's easy to get turned around and lose your sense of direction.

Though not as impressive as it might be, the assault rifle puts a very quick rate of fire and large magazine to good use. With the addition of a fast melee attack speed, the assault rifle can be quite fun to fire. A great Grunt-teaser. 60 round mag.
