The MA2B Assault rifle is a cut-down carbine version of the standard MA5B Individual Combat Weapon System. Like its relatives in the MA5 family, the MA2B is tough and reliable. It features electric targeting, an ammo supply indicator, a recoil-reduction system, and a larger magazine than the MA5B. The MA2B can deliver an impressive fifteen rounds per second and is chambered for .390 caliber ammunition. In addition to the standard armor-piercing rounds found in most human firearms, it can use "shredder" rounds, an anti-personnel ammunition type designed to splinter on impact.
