The MA2B Assault Rifle is a cut-down version of the standard MA5B Individual Combat Weapon System. It can be considered as a "Carbine".



Like its relatives in the MA5 family, the MA2B is tough and reliable. It has electric targeting, an ammo supply indicator, and a recoil-reduction system. The MA2B can deliver an impressive fifteen rounds per second and uses .390 caliber ammunition [1].

The MA2B features a larger magazine than its MA5 rifle counterparts. In addition to the standard Armor-Piercing rounds found in most Human firearms, it can use "Shredder" rounds, which is an anti-personnel ammunition type made from depleted uranium.

Operational Use

The SPARTAN-IIs were known to carry this weapon into action, usually when they were required to carry very little ordnance for a mission. John-117 and Blue Team used the MA2B on their first combat mission to capture Colonel Robert Watts of the Eridanus Rebels.
