The [[Shrewsbury]] '''Assault Rifle''' is an [[assault rifle]] that appeared in every [[GTA games|GTA game]] since ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', except in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' where it was cut during the development of the game ''(and was possibly replaced by the [[Ruger]])''.
  +
  +
In all of its appearances, it has been based on the AK-47 or a variant of this weapon.

  +
In 3D Universe, it is a common sight in the hands of many [[Gangs|gangs]] on the later missions throughout the games.
   
The AK-47 fires powerful rounds and is the most powerful assault rifle available in the [[GTA III Era]] games. A headshot will blow the target's head off. It does, however, have a low rate of fire, and suffers from tremendous recoil and accuracy problems with long range. It is a common sight in the hands of many gangs on the later missions throughout the games. The AK-47 does not appear in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], being replaced by the [[Ruger]].
+
GTA Vice City is the only game in 3D Universe not featuring an AK-47, which was cut and replaced by the [[Ruger]]. However, the weapons model and textures still remains in the game files (ak47.dff and ak47.txd). These files contain the same texture and model as the GTA III variant, and it seems the developers were planning to reuse the GTA III model.
{{wikipedia}}
+
In GTA IV, the AK-47 is referenced in-game as the '''Assault Rifle'''. It can be purchased from the back-alley gun shops for $3,500 and each additional magazine costs $80. It can also be purchased from [[Little Jacob]] for $2,450 with each additional magazine costing $55. Like almost all other guns, this a 1 headshot kill in single player and in multiplayer, a 2 headshot kill. It is the starting weapon when the weapons are set to assault rifles. This CANNOT be fired from a car, however it can be fired by a passenger in either a helicopter or boat. While the AK-47 is good, the M4 is probably better - the AK-47 has greater power but the M4 has greater accuracy and a slightly better rate of fire. The AK-47 is in 'poor weapons' range while the M4 is in the 'advanced' range. The extra firepower is not much in comparison to the M4 and is not required much since a single headshot from any weapon will kill any enemy in GTA IV (they are easy to pull off) and since the M4 has greater accuracy it is better if the player aims for the head.
+
In the [[HD Universe]], it is called the Assault Rifle, rather than AK-47. In GTA IV, the Assault Rifle is back again. It can be purchased from the [[Underground Gun Shops|back-alley gun shops]] for [[$]]3,500 and each additional magazine costs $80. It can also be purchased from [[Little Jacob]] for $2,450 with each additional magazine costing $55. It is the starting weapon when the weapons are set to assault rifles.
  +
  +
In the beta of GTA IV, the Assault Rifle appeared to look different and was similar to GTA V's Assault Rifle and had a different hand guard and a folding stock. It was known as the [[Zastava M70]], a Serbian variant of the Assault Rifle.
   
 
===Variations===
 
===Variations===
* '''GTA III '''([[2001]]): The GTA III version of the weapon is the [[Romania]]n WASR-2 (note the magazine) and is mostly accurate, but appears smaller than it should be.
+
* '''GTA III '''([[2001]]): The GTA III version of the weapon is the [[Romania]]n [[wp:WASR series rifles#WASR-2|WASR-2]] (note the magazine) and is mostly accurate, but appears smaller than it should be. Interestingly enough, the GTA III version has a similar sound to the San Andreas' [[MP5]].
*'''GTA San Andreas''' ([[1992]]): The GTA San Andreas version of the weapon is a Norinco Type 56. It is often used in [[Gang Warfare]]. The model strangely enough, is significantly larger than it should be, being two-thirds as long as [[Carl Johnson]] is tall (also the HUD in San Andreas shows a AKS-74 rather than a regular AK-47).
+
*'''GTA San Andreas''' ([[1992]]): The GTA San Andreas version of the weapon is a [[wp:Type 56 assault rifle|Norinco Type 56]], a [[China|Chinese]] clone of the original Assault Rifle. It is often used in [[Gang Warfare]] by rival members. The model is significantly larger than it should be, being two-thirds as long as [[Carl Johnson]] is tall.
 
*'''GTA Liberty City Stories''' ([[1998]]): The Liberty City Stories rendition is accurate, both by size and look.
 
*'''GTA Liberty City Stories''' ([[1998]]): The Liberty City Stories rendition is accurate, both by size and look.
*'''GTA Vice City Stories''' ([[1984]]): This rendition is exactly the same as the Liberty City Stories rendition.
+
*'''GTA Vice City Stories''' ([[1984]]): Exactly the same as in Liberty City Stories.
*'''GTA IV''' ([[2008]]): The version in-game is the AK-47. Its is accurate is size, look, magazine size and overall performance. The AK-47 is more powerful, but not as accurate as the [[M4]]. One should note, however. As with the Carbine Rifle, the rifle has two different reload animations, where Niko will simply pull the charging handle while standing. However, when he crouches, he'll do a longer animation in which he pulls out the magazine, inserts the new one, and then racks the charging handle, chambering a round. It could be an error in Rockstar Games
+
*'''GTA IV''' ([[2008]]): The overall design of the in-game version is identical to the AKM. However, it has some features from the an AK-47 such as lacking the slant muzzle and having a milled receiver. It is accurate in size, look, magazine size and overall performance. The Assault Rifle is more powerful, but not as accurate as the [[M4]]. One should note, however, as with the carbine rifle, the rifle has two different reload animations, where Niko will simply pull the charging handle while standing. However, when he crouches, he'll do a longer animation in which he pulls out the magazine, inserts the new one, and then racks the charging handle. It could be an error in the game by the game's developers.
*A screenshot from [[The Lost and Damned]] shows [[Johnny Klebitz]] holding an AKS-74 instead of the AK-47.
+
*'''GTA Chinatown Wars''' ([[2009]]): The Chinatown Wars variant appears to be another Romanian Assault Rifle WASR, having the plastic pistol grip. The upper handguard of the weapon has been removed, revealing the gas tube. These details are shown when it is found in a Dustbin. The [[HUD]] Icon shows a normal Assault Rifle.
*'''GTA Chinatown Wars''' ([[2009]]): The Chinatown Wars variant appears to be another Romanian AK-47 WASR, having the plastic pistol grip. The upper handguard of the weapon has been removed, revealing the gas tube. These details are shown when it is found in a Dustbin. The HUD Icon shows a normal AK-47.
+
*'''GTA V''' ([[2013]]): The model of the Assault Rifle in Grand Theft Auto V is a Norinco Type 56-2. The iron sights resemble those from the [[wp:SVT-40|SVT-40]]. It is superior to all pistols and SMGs, though the [[Carbine Rifle]] is more accurate and slightly more powerful.
*'''GTA V''' (2012-2013): The AK-47 is replaced in Grand Theft Auto V by a Norinco Type 56-2, (a Chinese counterpart of the AK-47), evident by the folding stock and front-sights. It can be seen in the trailer with green synthetic furniture. There are various attachments on the weapon, which may indicate some sort of weapons customization.
+
  +
==Performance==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
The Assault Rifle fires powerful 7.62mm rounds and is the most powerful assault rifle available in the [[3D Universe]] games (except in [[Grand Theft Auto III]] where the M16 is far more destructive). A headshot will behead the target. It does, however, have a low rate of fire, and suffers from tremendous recoil and accuracy problems with long range.
  +
  +
The AK-47's weapon skill increases faster than most other weapons in GTA San Andreas. By inspecting the ''ar_stats.dat'' file, it can be verified that the AK-47 gains 3 skill points per bullet that hits a legitimate target. The only comparable guns are the [[Silenced 9mm]] and the [[Combat Pistol|Desert Eagle]], which gain 5 and 3 points per bullet respectively. The pistols however have a much slower rate of fire. Likewise the AK-47's main competitors, the MP5 and M4 gain 1.5 and 2 points per bullet fired. For reference, 1000 skill points are required to reach the 'Hitman' level.
  +
  +
In GTA LCS and GTA VCS, the Assault Rifle shares the same sound as the [[Ruger]] from GTA Vice City, albeit sped up in comparison to the Ruger's slow fire rate. Their damage is identical, however.
  +
  +
===HD Universe===
  +
In GTA IV, like almost all other guns, this requires a 1 headshot kill in single player and in [[Multiplayer in GTA IV|multiplayer]], a 2 headshot kill. The weapon cannot be fired from a car, however it can be fired by a passenger in either a helicopter, boat or a passenger that is hanging on the side of the [[Granger]] (except the [[Lifeguard]] variant), the [[Roosevelt]] and the [[Police Riot]]. While the Assault Rifle is good, the M4 is somewhat balanced out - the Assault Rifle has greater power but the M4 has greater accuracy. The Assault Rifle is in 'poor weapons' range while the M4 is in the 'advanced' range. The extra firepower is not much in comparison to the M4 and is not required much since a single headshot from any weapon will kill any enemy in GTA IV (they are easy to pull off) and since the M4 has greater accuracy it is better if the player aims for the head.
  +
  +
The Assault Rifle in GTA IV strangely has two reload animations. When Niko is standing while reloading, he will cock the gun with his left hand, but when he is crouching while reloading, he will take "out" the magazine, puts "another" one in and cocks the gun. It is unknown why two reloading animations are present. These two reloading animations are also present with the [[M4]] and the [[Assault Shotgun]].
  +
  +
In GTA V, unlike previous games, the Assault Rifle it is weaker than the Carbine Rifle. In the enhanced version, the weapon had a bug resulting in the rate of fire increasing to that of a minigun. This glitch occurred when the player was in first-person-view and aimed down the sights. This has since been patched.

"This standard assault rifle boasts a large capacity magazine and long distance accuracy."
―GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Shrewsbury Assault Rifle is an assault rifle that appeared in every GTA game since Grand Theft Auto III, except in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City where it was cut during the development of the game (and was possibly replaced by the Ruger).

In all of its appearances, it has been based on the AK-47 or a variant of this weapon.

Description Edit

"Cheap, dependable Russian import with good range and short reload times... The revolutionary's assault weapon of choice."
— Description in GTA CW.

In 3D Universe, it is a common sight in the hands of many gangs on the later missions throughout the games.

GTA Vice City is the only game in 3D Universe not featuring an AK-47, which was cut and replaced by the Ruger. However, the weapons model and textures still remains in the game files (ak47.dff and ak47.txd). These files contain the same texture and model as the GTA III variant, and it seems the developers were planning to reuse the GTA III model.

In the HD Universe, it is called the Assault Rifle, rather than AK-47. In GTA IV, the Assault Rifle is back again. It can be purchased from the back-alley gun shops for $3,500 and each additional magazine costs $80. It can also be purchased from Little Jacob for $2,450 with each additional magazine costing $55. It is the starting weapon when the weapons are set to assault rifles.

In the beta of GTA IV, the Assault Rifle appeared to look different and was similar to GTA V's Assault Rifle and had a different hand guard and a folding stock. It was known as the Zastava M70, a Serbian variant of the Assault Rifle.

VariationsEdit

  • GTA III (2001): The GTA III version of the weapon is the Romanian WASR-2 (note the magazine) and is mostly accurate, but appears smaller than it should be. Interestingly enough, the GTA III version has a similar sound to the San Andreas' MP5.
  • GTA San Andreas (1992): The GTA San Andreas version of the weapon is a Norinco Type 56, a Chinese clone of the original Assault Rifle. It is often used in Gang Warfare by rival members. The model is significantly larger than it should be, being two-thirds as long as Carl Johnson is tall.
  • GTA Liberty City Stories (1998): The Liberty City Stories rendition is accurate, both by size and look.
  • GTA Vice City Stories (1984): Exactly the same as in Liberty City Stories.
  • GTA IV (2008): The overall design of the in-game version is identical to the AKM. However, it has some features from the an AK-47 such as lacking the slant muzzle and having a milled receiver. It is accurate in size, look, magazine size and overall performance. The Assault Rifle is more powerful, but not as accurate as the M4. One should note, however, as with the carbine rifle, the rifle has two different reload animations, where Niko will simply pull the charging handle while standing. However, when he crouches, he'll do a longer animation in which he pulls out the magazine, inserts the new one, and then racks the charging handle. It could be an error in the game by the game's developers.
  • GTA Chinatown Wars (2009): The Chinatown Wars variant appears to be another Romanian Assault Rifle WASR, having the plastic pistol grip. The upper handguard of the weapon has been removed, revealing the gas tube. These details are shown when it is found in a Dustbin. The HUD Icon shows a normal Assault Rifle.
  • GTA V (2013): The model of the Assault Rifle in Grand Theft Auto V is a Norinco Type 56-2. The iron sights resemble those from the SVT-40. It is superior to all pistols and SMGs, though the Carbine Rifle is more accurate and slightly more powerful.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The Assault Rifle fires powerful 7.62mm rounds and is the most powerful assault rifle available in the 3D Universe games (except in Grand Theft Auto III where the M16 is far more destructive). A headshot will behead the target. It does, however, have a low rate of fire, and suffers from tremendous recoil and accuracy problems with long range.

The AK-47's weapon skill increases faster than most other weapons in GTA San Andreas. By inspecting the ar_stats.dat file, it can be verified that the AK-47 gains 3 skill points per bullet that hits a legitimate target. The only comparable guns are the Silenced 9mm and the Desert Eagle, which gain 5 and 3 points per bullet respectively. The pistols however have a much slower rate of fire. Likewise the AK-47's main competitors, the MP5 and M4 gain 1.5 and 2 points per bullet fired. For reference, 1000 skill points are required to reach the 'Hitman' level.

In GTA LCS and GTA VCS, the Assault Rifle shares the same sound as the Ruger from GTA Vice City, albeit sped up in comparison to the Ruger's slow fire rate. Their damage is identical, however.

HD UniverseEdit

In GTA IV, like almost all other guns, this requires a 1 headshot kill in single player and in multiplayer, a 2 headshot kill. The weapon cannot be fired from a car, however it can be fired by a passenger in either a helicopter, boat or a passenger that is hanging on the side of the Granger (except the Lifeguard variant), the Roosevelt and the Police Riot. While the Assault Rifle is good, the M4 is somewhat balanced out - the Assault Rifle has greater power but the M4 has greater accuracy. The Assault Rifle is in 'poor weapons' range while the M4 is in the 'advanced' range. The extra firepower is not much in comparison to the M4 and is not required much since a single headshot from any weapon will kill any enemy in GTA IV (they are easy to pull off) and since the M4 has greater accuracy it is better if the player aims for the head.

The Assault Rifle in GTA IV strangely has two reload animations. When Niko is standing while reloading, he will cock the gun with his left hand, but when he is crouching while reloading, he will take "out" the magazine, puts "another" one in and cocks the gun. It is unknown why two reloading animations are present. These two reloading animations are also present with the M4 and the Assault Shotgun.

In GTA V, unlike previous games, the Assault Rifle it is weaker than the Carbine Rifle. In the enhanced version, the weapon had a bug resulting in the rate of fire increasing to that of a minigun. This glitch occurred when the player was in first-person-view and aimed down the sights. This has since been patched.
