Assault Rifle is a two-handed procedurally generated ranged weapon model.

It can be common, uncommon, and rare. Common Assault Rifles will shoot bullets, while uncommon and rare ones will shoot elemental plasma shots.

Note: though Assault Rifles are part of vanilla Starbound, their characteristics are modified significantly by Frackin' Universe. For the unmodified characteristics, consult the official Starbound wiki, Starbounder (
