|EDF Assault Rifle|
|Faction||Earth Defence Force|
|Rate of Fire||High|
The EDF Assault Rifle is the basic field assault rifle issued to Earth Defence Force troops in the Second Martian Revolution. So reliable, effective and compact is this weapon that both Red Faction insurgents and Marauders will often scavenge them from the EDF.
The EDF Assault Rifle is one of the best weapons through the earlier stages of the game. It's high rate of fire, high magazine capacity and availability of ammunition make it a solid choice when the EDF begin to send waves of troops after Mason. The Rifle is, like most EDF weapons, better suited to taking on personnel rather than vehicles or buildings. Using this weapon in conjunction with the Remote Charges or Rocket Launcher allows the player to deal with both infantry and fortified structures. Further into the game the EDF tend to use the EDF Enforcer or the EDF Gauss Rifle, making this weapon obsolete.
