An Assault Rifle is a selective-fire firearm using a projectile with a muzzle energy in between those of a full-sized rifle and a smaller submachine-gun or a pistol. Assault rifles are categorized in between light machine guns, which are intended more for sustained automatic fire in a support role, and submachine guns, which fire a pistol cartridge rather than a rifle cartridge.

History

Assault Rifles date back to the end of the Second World War. Germany developed the first assault rifle, a weapon called the Sturmgewehr 1944. Although it was not fielded in the same quantities as the Maschinenpistole 1940 or the Karabiner 98Kurz, the devastating losses it inflicted upon the advancing Soviet armies encouraged the USSR to develop this new class of weapons. The result was the Russian AK-47, which basically set the definition of an assault rifle. By the time of the Halo trilogy, most assault rifles also house an onboard electronics suite, showing ammo capacity, a compass, and other information, without the use of a HUD.

These could refer to the following:

It is also possible that the BR55 is an Assault Rifle, as it doesn't fire a full rifle cartridge and, in trailers, seems capable of fully automatic fire hinting at a selective fire feature that was not included due to gameplay issues.

  • BR55 Battle Rifle - Replacing the Assault Rifle in Halo 2, despite not appearing as a complimentary weapon to the MA5B in the canon.

A lighter and less expensive military version of the automatic rifle, the assault rifle fires a 6mm, 5 gram bullet at velocites of 900 meters per second. A magazine containing 30 rounds is inserted into the underside of the assault rifle, ahead of the trigger guard. The weapon may either be fired automatically (four rounds per pull of the trigger) or semi-automatically (one round per pull of the trigger).

The assault rifle has in integral carrying grip/sight, and is generally provided with a sling as well. Belt fed versions are not available, and special sights may not be attached without considerable modification to the basic design.
