The Assault Rifle is a weapon in Resident Evil CODE:Veronica.
This weapon fires very quickly, but is slightly weak, usually taking more rounds to kill a zombie compared to the Handgun. It takes up 2 inventory slots.
In the main game, it is found in the Antarctic Base armory by Claire Redfield. With its ammunition supply measured in a percentage, one spare magazine of 50% can be found in the ruins of the research center by Chris Redfield. Chris can also find the gun in the Antarctica Facility in the room with the Magnum and Detonator. It is also known to be used by the Umbrella Security Service. This weapon can be used as a replacement for the Handgun if the player prefers to conserve ammo for it. It can also be used as a back-up weapon in a battle with Nosferatu if the Sniper Rifle's ammo has ran out.
In the Battle Game, the weapon is used by Claire in her alternate costume in the Battle mode and it has infinite ammo.
