  • Due to the appearance of the weapon on both it's HUD icon and in-game, it can be guessed that this is an AK-47, or at least one of the numerous AK assault rifles.
  • Strangely, the icon for the Broken Assault Rifle resembles a Thompson Submachine Gun, an submachine gun used from the late 1920s to the early 1950s, but when repaired it resembles an AK-47 Assault Rifle, a weapon used from the late 1940s to the present day.
  • In the code, Assult Rifle is referenced as "Machinegun", and Broken Assult Rifle is refered to as 'Machinegun_broken".
