Assault Rifle Location

Before anything else, players need to know that they will have to have progressed quite deep into the game. The rifle is easily missable, and it will not be obtained through the main storyline, rather players need to explore around when they get to a specific location to get their hands on the assault rifle schematics

The weapon will be accessible once you get to chapter 7 “Colony” in the game. When you’ve progressed enough in the storyline, you will be heading toward an area that is known as a slum, and it will contain loads of homes that will be run-down. 

Starting Of Slums

When you’re starting your search for the gun, you will be in a hallway that will be leading into the slum area. The hallway itself will be represented by black and grey colors, and it will have an extremely eerie atmosphere, preparing the player for the slums that they are about to head in. 

Start making your way through the hallway, and right in front of the player, there will be what appears to be lined metal that will be colored grey, and there will be a small square that will be cut out from it, which will indicate an entrance to the slums. 

Head towards the entrance, and there will be a small platform where you will have to first jump off, which will lead you further closer to the entrance. From there, you can then go ahead and press W and E to interact with the space and jump over the entrance to fully go into the slums

Into The Slums 

Once you’ve successfully made your way into the slums, there will be a completely different scenario in front of you. There will be buildings that will be run down, and there will be small buildings, and homes as well as tattered covers that will cover the rooftops of a few homes. 

Alongside that, there will be extreme dirt, and most of the homes will resemble container homes. Combining it with the abandoned space, the entire slum area gives the player a freaky feeling, with an almost eerie presence. 

When you first enter the slums, you will be present on a platform, and there will be a pole in front of the platform. Start making your way over to the edge of the platform, after which you can head a bit forward n order to jump off of it to get to the ground. 

On the slum that will be in front of you, there will be a small one that displays the word “elevator”, and right beside it, there is a pathway that will lead even deeper into the slums. 

When you jump onto the ground, move a bit towards the slum with the word on it, and then steer a bit to the left which will allow you to get a clear view of the pathway ahead of you. From there, start heading forth, and you will come across a slum with no door, as well as another slum that will be colored grey on your right that you want to cross ahead from. 

After you cross the slum that was towards your right, it will open up an even more open area that will showcase more slums that will be broken down. Turn right from the slum that you just crossed. 

When you do so, you will encounter the main entrance of the slum that was colored grey, and the entrance will be represented by a small wooden pathway on the ground, and there will be two wooden structures that will be a few feet ahead of the door

The two sticks will connect a tattered cloth from the actual rooftop of the slum to represent a small entrance, and to give coverage to anyone coming inside, and there will also be a small barrel that will be placed beside the wooden stick that was placed on the left side of the slum entrance.

From the place that we just described before, run through the main entrance area, and right in front of you, you will be able to encounter another slum. 

However, this slum will be represented by a cleaner look. There will be a small entrance in the front, and though there is no door, it looks like an official entrance. Right in front of the slum, there will be a long pole with a light on it that will be shining right towards the entrance of the slum, illuminating the slum even more. 

Towards the pole, there will be quite a few barrels, trash as well as random items present. Right towards the left of the entrance of the slum, there will be a ladder. Right beside the ladder, there will be a text written. 

The text will show the words “Midtown” that will be written in white and the letters will be written individually, going down one letter at a time beside the ladder. The inside of the slum will be empty, therefore there won’t be much to explore inside. 

Approach the ladder, and when you first interact with it, you will be able to start climbing up it. When you’re climbing up the ladder, you will be also able to take note of the signboard with a white arrow that will be pointed up. 

When you fully make your way up the ladder, you will be able to encounter a completely new area.

When you climb up to the ladder, players will be greeted with an open rooftop. In front of you, there will be a longer pathway that will split the top of the slum and will introduce even more slums in the area in front of you. 

From the top of the main slum that you climbed from, you want to turn right around, and right in front of you, there will also be a small area where the slums will be split off, and the space will be leading straight down back to the ground. 

There will be ledges that will protect the people who once lived here from falling off, and the ledges will be placed right toward the edge of the higher platforms. When you move a few feet forward, there will also be a signboard that will showcase one of the slums being a general store

The signboards will all be pretty run-down, just like the slums are, and players will need to make their way over to the general store signboard, and from there, you can move a bit toward the right so that you can move across from the general store. 

When you do so, you will be able to see the entrance of the general store, and you will be able to head in as well. Go into the general store, and it will be empty, with zero lighting, and there will be nothing but an empty pathway leading even further into the now-broken-down store. 

Head to the very back of the store, and from there, you will be able to come across the outside of the store, which will be indicated by a teal color that will be painted on the walls that will be connected with the exit. 

Move a bit to the left, and when you head out, and pan your camera bit to the left, you will be able to take note of a sign that will be placed on the walls that will say “elevator”.head past the sign, and there will be another slum in front of you.

Players will be able to take note of a slum which will be colored white, and there will be a massive bloodshot towards the right wall of the slum. Players want to start making their way over to the slum. 

From there, steer a bit to the left, which will then lead you further into the slum, and it will appear to be a run-down bathroom of sorts. There will be three sinks that will be placed on the left end of the room. 

There will also be three mirrors that will be placed right above the sinks, and on a small shelf that will be placed in front of the mirror in the middle, players will be able to get their hands on the Assault Rifle Schematics

  • Magnum Rounds Damage Upgrade: Players will need to first get the high capacity upgrade if they want to get the second one, and it will essence enhance the overall damage output of the rifle, and it will cost players a total of 1500 credits, which makes it pretty pricey. 
  • Stability Upgrade: Players need to first have gotten the Magnum Rounds to upgrade if they want to get the third upgrade, and it will be even more pricey than the second one, therefor players will need to save up at least 4500 credits as the upgrade will decrease the overall weapon recoil.
