This is an all-round weapon which suits any situation, even close-combat games since its high-fire rate can kill enemies very quickly.
There is no difference between primary and secondary fire. Like most high fire-rate weapons, bots in the original TimeSplitters either fire groups of bullets with a very short pause in-between or some tougher bots fire constantly until your health is critical.
- Originally the Assault Rifle was slated to make an appearance in the sequel but was for one reason or another cut, and only appeared in the Beta. Based on screenshots, it would have been been used by the Military in the Siberia Mission and possibly in the Training Ground as part of the Default Weapon Set. It was seemingly replaced by the Soviet S47, which is based off the AK-47, to fit in with the location of the levels based in Russia. However, some screenshots show both weapons existing at once, similarly to the M16 and Assault Rifle both appearing in the original TimeSplitters.
- Docks is the only Story mission that this weapon appears in.
- The Minigun in TimeSplitters 2 reuses this weapon's sound effects.
