The assault rifle (アサルトライフル) is a selective fire rifle used by the 07th Platoon. Its ammunition is stored a piece of the gun that protrudes from its side, attached to the handle and the loader. It can be equipped with either a scope or a grenade launcher. Adam Malkovich and Lyle Smithsonian both carry this weapon in-game, using different attachments (Adam uses the grenade launcher, and Lyle uses the scope). Upon encountering Brugs, Lyle panics and fires his rifle on them in excess before he is stopped by James Pierce.
- Miguel Luis Garcia, a character in Metroid Prime: Episode of Aether, appears to have the same assault rifle Adam has; it even has a grenade launcher.
- This weapon resembles the M41A Pulse Rifle from Aliens.
