Rifle

From Satisfactory Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Rifle is a ranged weapon that fires three types of bullets as ammunition: Rifle Ammo, Homing Rifle Ammo, and Turbo Rifle Ammo, each with different properties. The desired ammunition can be selected by holding down the reload key (default R). The Rifle can be fired automatically with all ammunition types by holding down fire, or semi-automatically by tapping.

When using normal ammunition, each Rifle magazine holds 15 rounds that deal four damage each and have a semi-automatic fire rate cap of five rounds per second. Bullets travel in a straight line with infinite speed (hitscan), up to a maximum firing range of 150 meters.

Usage

Equipment

The Rifle deals less damage per-shot than the Rebar Gun, but since it has a magazine rather than being single-shot, it offers the ability to rapidly make follow-up shots. It also has a much longer effective range, and since it fires hitscans when using Rifle Ammo and Turbo Rifle Ammo, there is no need to lead targets or compensate for projectile drop.

With standard ammunition the rifle is a relatively slow-firing weapon with little meaningful difference between holding the fire button and manually pressing it, with the crosshair initially a point which blooms slightly with repeat shots. Both alternate ammo types change the behavior of the weapon, though not nearly as radically as the alternative ammo for the Rebar Gun:

Turbo Ammo makes the Rifle a fast-firing automatic weapon and offers five times the magazine size. With this ammo, the weapon's fire rate accelerates the longer it is fired, peaking after five seconds: this is accompanied by much greater crosshair bloom. The fire rate takes time to return to the default (indicated by the crosshair slowly shrinking back to normal), meaning that short, rapid bursts offer a balance of firepower and accuracy.

Homing Ammo defaults to an extremely broad crosshair, but this does not represent shot bloom; rather, it indicates the weapon's tracking area. The ammo will curve to hit enemies within the aiming circle even if the Rifle is not pointed directly at them. The bullets are to be tracked as projectiles rather than hitscans, and have some trouble with agile enemies, especially small Stingers where shots will often strike the ground around them. The weapon has a somewhat faster fire rate and larger magazine size of 18, while dealing only three damage per shot.

 Homing Rifle Ammo 3 18
 Turbo Rifle Ammo 4 75
