assault carbine is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The assault carbine is a magazine-fed, compact automatic weapon with a high rate of fire and a comparatively low
spread. It is one of the most accurate automatic weapons in the game, and can be effectively used in close and medium range combat. In V.A.T.S. mode, it will shoot a 5 round burst for a cost of 20 Action Points.
The assault carbine uses
5mm rounds, boasting an armor piercing effect of -10 DT, and 5mm AP rounds, which have a -25 DT effect. These make the weapon highly effective against medium armored or heavily armored targets, as only power armor possesses more than 25 DT. In addition, 5mm HP rounds have only a x2 DT multiplier, compared to the x3 multiplier of other HP rounds. (All effects as of patch 188.8.131.522). 5mm ammunition is available in large quantities, as it is also used by the high-capacity minigun.
The assault carbine can be equipped with an
extended magazine, identical to that used on the regular Marksman carbine except with a black rather than aluminum finish.
The assault carbine can fire a total of about 3745 standard rounds, the equivalent of 157 reloads, or 125 reloads when modified with extended magazines, from full
condition before breaking.

The assault carbine sports a very compact size compared to the R91 assault rifle, which was the United States' primary combat rifle before the Great War.
It has a similar look to the Service rifle, although it has a shorter barrel, ergonomic handgrips, matte black furniture, and a collapsible stock instead of a fixed wooden one.
Behind the scenes Edit
According to J.E. Sawyer, both the assault carbine and the
marksman carbine are present due to New Vegas' proximity to Nellis AFB.
