The AR-55 Phase Autorifle is a versatile Assault Rifle. You do not have to unlock this weapon, as this weapon is sold through the Quick Shop.


The AR-55 Phase Autorifle can have 8 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapons type, so only attachments that have Assault Rifle or Medium Ammo as a category can be installed onto an AR-55 Phase Autorifle.


A decent fully automatic rifle, doesn't excel in any one department, but comfortably versatile and lethally effective.


The AR-55 Phase Autorifle was commissioned by the IFA in an attempt to improve standard Authority armament without further increasing their reliance on Korolev Heavy Industries. While the IFA would eventually settle with the SAR-62, CoTEC's AR-55 remains a popular weapon in private armies and corporate security forces, and has succeeded at being an effective market counter to the popular KOR-47.
