The '''Rifle''' is a basic lever-action repeater rifle featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], resembling a Marlin Model 336. Hitting the aim button with this won't invoke an auto-target reticule, but instead skips straight to a free-aim mode. Given its lack of a lock-on feature and slow reloading, one might think it is rather pointless to use. However, with a per-bullet damage rate behind only to the [[Sniper Rifle|sniper rifle]], [[Minigun|minigun]], and [[Desert Eagle|desert eagle]] (at Gangster level and up), it does earn its keep in the hands of a decent marksman.

The Rifle in the HUD of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

The rifle or country rifle is a basic lever-action repeater rifle featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, taking the form of a Marlin Model 336. Hitting the aim button with this won't invoke an auto-target reticule, but instead skips straight to a free-aim mode. Given its lack of a lock-on feature and slow reloading, one might think it is rather pointless to use. However, with a per-bullet damage rate behind only to the sniper rifle, minigun, and desert eagle (at Gangster level and up), it does earn its keep in the hands of a decent marksman.

In The Truth's mission Body Harvest, Carl Johnson needs to rob a Combine Harvester from The Farm, just north of The Truth's farm in Leafy Hollow. The survivalists will start shooting Carl with rifles and attacking with shovels.
