Borderlands 2:Assault Rifle

From Borderlands Wiki
(Redirected from Assault Rifle)
Jump to: navigation, search



The workhorse of commandos from dozens of star systems, the assault rifle is a reliable gun type offering solid damage and all-around utility. Assault rifles tend to be best at mid to long range, where their combination of optics, accuracy, and fire rate makes the most sense. Assault rifles are built for solid damage over sustained time and distance, and they don’t get the outsize critical bonuses of weapons like sniper rifles and revolvers. (Criticals are, of course, still much better than non-criticals. Just not quite as beefy as with some other weapons, that’s all.)
