Most assault rifles are similar from a gameplay perspective. They all have a high-ammunition capacity and fairly good damage output. All assault rifles are either automatic or semi-automatic, with automatic assault rifles having a higher rate of fire.
Most weapons in the games are based on real-life firearms. Some real-world weapon designs make an appearance in nearly every game. These include:
- It is a common misconception: "assault rifles" are their own category of firearm. In reality, "assault rifle" is simply a designation given to any semi-automatic or automatic rifle (or carbine) designed for military or paramilitary use.
- The assault rifle is arguably the best multi-purpose weapon in every Gangstar game.
