Turok Wiki

"Fires short 3-round bursts -- a handy way to dispatch dinosaurs! Holds many rounds and uses the same ammo as the Pistol."
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter manual[1]

The Assault Rifle is a weapon that appears in a few games of the Turok series, making its first appearance in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. It is typically presented as an automatic rifle that fires three-round bursts.


The Assault Rifle's design in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter resembles that of an AK-47 assault rifle. It has the same magazine design as the AK-47 and also possesses a wooden surface design around its barrel and stock. This weapon shares ammo with the Pistol, and the rifle fires three-round bursts as its main and only function in this game.

The Assault Rifle of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil has a more high-tech/original look and resembles an IMI Uzi (although it does not seem to have a trigger, or trigger guard for that matter). Unlike its predecessor, this is multiplayer-exclusive and cannot be obtained in single-player. Finally, it is only obtainable in the Nintendo 64 version. It has the same three-round burst function as its predecessor.

In Turok: Rage Wars, the Assault Rifle has a black and grey design, closely resembling the H&K G41. For the first time, this version of the rifle has a secondary function. The primary function is a single-shot semi-automatic mode, while the secondary function makes the weapon fire on full-automatic mode with less accuracy. The Assault Rifle is unlocked in Single-Player mode by beating "Crossroads" with the Mantid Drone. Its secondary function is unlocked by beating "Warehouse" with the same character.

The Assault Rifle appears again in Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion, this time as a weapon obtained in both single-player and multiplayer. Its appearance greatly differs from its previous designs. It resembles an M4 assault rifle and sports a grey/military green color scheme. Danielle Fireseed can upgrade her Assault Rifle to the Firestorm Cannon. Joseph Fireseed can upgrade to the Sniper Rifle.
