This is a compromise between a slow-firing rifle and a long-ranged machine-gun. The Assault Rifle can keep enemies in check at a range most weapons can't fire at, while still maintaining just enough rate of fire to threaten both targets in cover and those closing the distance. A very well-balanced, highly recommended weapon at both the early and later stages of the game.

Unfortunately, its relatively low shot power is a very real drawback, so you may want to upgrade your colonists to the Heavy SMG or Charge Rifle when possible, especially if facing against raiders using personal shields, or heavily-armored mechanoids that can soak up enormous punishment.

Trivia

The Assault Rifle is based off of the well-known American M16 assault rifle in real life.
