Howa Type-64 Battle Rifle

Howa Type-64 Battle Rifle
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good, if you know how

Aka 64 Shiki if you're a weeb.

She's a bit of a complicated unit in that certain enemy thresholds alter what her skill does, thus making her work better vs bosses (with her colossal 90% FP boost for a few seconds) than for regular encounters. However, the timings are awkwardly short for the big boost, and the 2nd half reduces her firepower a bunch but also buffs the hell out of the stuff in front (which, if it's SR3, means more damage for her.) Note that the skill is less awkward than it seems, as it counts doll groups, rather than individuals, so 5x 5-linked enemies is totally fine, and so on.

Also, like all units with tilescan buffs, you can futz with getting the buff multiple times by having units at the right spots at the right time (though its a little harder to use as it checks 3s into the skill rather than on skill use). This produces a +140% buff that, while hard to use, a creative commander might find some purpose for. YMMV with that.

Bofors Automatkarbin 5
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Good

AKA Ak 5

An upgraded version of the FN FNC, both IRL and ingame. Like FNC, her 5/8 skill uptime makes her burstier than the 10/16 of G36, with better stats, which evens out to DPS comparable to G36. Not your first choice for ARs, but solid… if you can be arsed to farm her.

S&T Daewoo K11
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Totally not Architect in disguise. We think. Probably. A grenadier that's actually pretty ok at general use simple because she fires the grenades within a time frame where everything isn't fucking dead yet, and she fires a huge volley (1 per link) that finishes off targets if the first grenade doesn't kill them. On the flipside, firing 1 grenade per link ALSO means she doesn't reach full power until 5x linked, and also means every dummy lost is a loss in grenade power, unlike literally every other grenadier.

Her main problem is literally random targeting, so the grenades may or may not land in the ideal pattern, but they're at least hitting things and you get lots of grenades, so at worst the spread is not ideal rather than wasted

Daewoo Precision Industries K2

Daewoo Precision Industries K2
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Standard issue rifle of the ROKAF and only non-main-Heroine doll to get her own fully animated PV. Also a tribute to Anmi's ability to make some of the game's lewdest art and have people not notice because of how innocent the faces are. Almost every adult Korean male is very intimately familiar with her, whether they wanted to be or not.

Imagine G11 started up her skill right at the start of the fight. Imagine she was completely useless against armour (more so than she already is). That's K2 in a nutshell. Super high DPS (1 of the strongest) for the first 6 seconds vs trash, but cannot fight armor to save her life and is absolutely awful against bosses. However, her ability to kill unarmored trash is some of the best in the game, which has plenty of uses since bosses are not actually the most common enemy type.

What her skill does is reduce her damage but fire off 3 round bursts, and builds up a heat counter which, when capped out, uh... fucks up her stats. The other part of her skill (stronger single shot damage but slows her down and makes every shot cool down instead of heat up) generally doesn't come up. Some actually recommend not giving her too many RoF buffs or she'll overheat.

Also, she's an awful Korean, being unable to tolerate spicy food (but she tries anyway)

Assault Rifle ★★★★ Core fodder

Like her real life counterpoint, ultimately disappointment despite being not quite entirely worse than many competitors.

She's not the worst grenadier out there, but in the end, both 416 and SOPMOD are better than her, and you don't need more than a few grenadiers.

Desert Tech Micro-Dynamic Rifle (MDR)
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Selfie Queen. Troll. Probably Jarv's waifu Jarv in disguise. Claims bullpups are scientifically the best thing ever.

If she doesn't have an ally in front of her, she self-buffs for both firepower and RoF, with a net increase of 76.9% DPS (over G41's 75%, and she has more base firepower, so she will provide generally superior damage except vs armor). This alone makes her usable, but her unique brand of cheese is when you have friends in front of her.

On skilluse, she scans for an ally directly ahead and if one is found, gives them a 40hp shield that increases their evade by 80%, stacking multiplicatively with all other buffs. Has very good synergy with units like C-MS, MP7, and the like. Due to the way area scan skills work, with the move command and a sense of timing, you can actually protect the whole echelon this way via shenanigans (or at least just all your frontal tank units). Oh by the way, this also works on the taunt fairy target drone.

Flexible unit that can be used 2 ways, and is actually handy in both of them.

SIG SG-510

SIG SG-510
Assault Rifle ★★ Enhancement fodder

Also known as StG57. Lower DPS than Galil, but has a less awful buff tiles at the stage you will probably use her, because your main tank is probably Sten or something and you'll almost assuredly be running Skorpion that early.

Falls off kinda quickly and has some of the lowest self-DPS among ARs, you won't be using her past the beginning unless you're doing a challenge or really REALLY like her.

The game hates roller delayed rifles apparently.

Steyr AUG

Steyr AUG
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Recommended

Aka StG 77, the ARMEEUNIVERSALGEWEHR.

…another testament to Austrians being fucking crazy:

  • Her tiles give slightly weaker buffs than Ribey's or M4A1's, but since she buffs all types, she'll also boost your SMGs, helping both Shrimp and molotovs.
  • Her stats are excellent, and she's a damage dealer very close to G11's level.
  • Her skill sets her RoF to 150 and basically turns her into an MG (sounds included. Yes, it changes her firing sound to match an MG.), with goofy targeting that you CANNOT CONTROL BY ANY MEANS (Including Contender). At level 10, it will have no accuracy penalty either!

10/10, would suffer awful trigger pull again

Beretta AR70

Beretta AR70
Assault Rifle ★★★ Trophy Raifu

A product of old design from before the devs really understood what they had going. Mostly notable for her odd aura which gives colossal accuracy boost, but her stats are kinda eh and you end up with an overall DPS loss still. A fairly meh grenade and basically the sort of sort of thing that would be useful for an early player, except at 21 days in at least, you probably have better already (Hint; You do, you should have AR team by then).

T91 Assault Rifle

T91 Assault Rifle
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Usable

Known on other servers as 5 cores .

She has marginally stronger performance to 9A-91 despite her significantly higher bases due to her considerably lower FP buff. You're honestly better off using daylight ARs at night rather than working on her due to cost.

Crit buff generally doesn't help much at night for ARs not named STAR15 or SOPMOD (unless you're doing something weird), and her FP boost isn't enough improvement over a day AR to make it worth your trouble. Even worse, Crit is calculated AFTER armor, so that makes her double sad.

Kel-Tec RFB

Kel-Tec RFB
Assault Rifle ★★★★★ Good

Her skill consists of two parts:

  • Make her use rifle targeting (backline priority): Not all that useful – if the backline really is dangerous, you want it killed now, not after six seconds, and better bring actual rifles or fairies to deal with it.
  • Buff herself: Her stats are good to begin with, and the buff is beefy – this makes her an excellent AR for all purposes.

She's stronger than most 5* ARs (including G41), but doesn't quite make the cut to AUG/AR-15/G11 levels of damage output; at night she's one of the more useful daylight ARs due to her high firepower and accuracy self-buff. (But, again, outclassed by the night royalty.)

Overall solid, but not amazing, with a mostly useless gimmick. Her biggest problem is AR power creep, she'll be outclassed further down the line, which makes her not much of a priority now.

Elphelt

Elphelt
Shotgun Special Recommended

She has good stats. Like... seriously, some of the best raw stats on an SG. Since most SGs get by on stats alone instead of their skill, this gives her a nice leg up.

On top of that she has a nuke skill that... honestly doesnt usually come up, but when it does, it's pretty much the biggest nuke on a shotgun you get (2 hits for 8x vs primary, 12x area around primary). As a bonus, if the first shot kills the primary, the secondary BOOM changes targets (uses standard grenade targeting). Note that due to her ammo and reload speeds, if you want to fire the first nuke immediately, you will likely need to reload cancel her.

Noel

Noel
Handgun Special Trophy Raifu

Imagine how bad Noel was at her lowest point in her own series. ...Now imagine its worse.

Somehow arguably less useful than P7 who has similar tiles, and her skill is kind of awful. She's a perfect storm of not being particularly good at any 1 thing while also not being really acceptable at any of them. Also she jumps forward during her skill.

This can have unexpectedly bad effects on enemy positioning sometimes, including units... uh.. simply walking past her, to the map edge, which makes you lose. There are arguably some scenarios where she's useful, but those are... niche to the extreme and honestly if you're one of the people who CAN pull those off, you dont need me to explain anything to you.

Ribeyrolles Fusil Automatique 1918
Assault Rifle ★★★★ Recommended

When her artist read up on her, she was kind of horrified and drew a weak-bodied hospital patient who hates her defective form. In the actual game, she is a stupidly good performance AR-buffer. Her skill is somewhat peculiar, because she does not buff herself, but she more than makes up for it by turning the other two ARs into veritable murder machines. Presumably because the other ARs are horrified at the thought of her dying out with them and wanting to kill the enemy as soon as possible.
