The assault rifle is probably going to be the weapon you use the most throughout the game. Simply keep constantly upgrading and equipping new more powerful rifles and you will eventually get this, also use the Overkill skill to help in aiming and killing enemies faster. The kills will carry on multiple play throughs if you don't get it the first time around.

Also you MUST get the killing shot, your teammates kills don't count.
Leon KowalskiFor a new character, only the Soldier class can use an Assault Rifle, so it isn't necessarily the weapon you use throughout most of the game, unless you're a Soldier. Or if you've finished the game with a Soldier, a new character could start with the Assault Rifle talent.

A trick with getting any of the weapon achievements early is directing your squad (with the D-pad) to some out-of-the-way location where they cannot shoot the enemies.

VidalukoVetNo, with the normal playing is fine, I just got it, and I`m just 8hrs in the game, and I let my squad shoot too, maybe if you want to earn all weapons achievements in 1 play you can make your squad go to cover....

Shinerbock88Using Overkill also generates less heat allowing you to be trigger happy. Woohooooo!

InugamiTheHoundis it possible to get this achievement if your character can't use assault rifles???

Crimson Drifternot directly, I believe once you finish the game and start another playthrough you can put a weapon mastery on your character which will allow them to use a certain weapon. I can't remember exactly to be honest, can anyone deny or confirm?

GizmoScrivAlso helps to go to Pinnacle Station (if you've got the DLC) to grind out some kills if you aren't getting them in normal battle

QuarantaneFirst one of these (and only so far) that I have. I have 14 hours of gameplay, but I haven't even done the second storyline planet, I've been grinding through the assignments.

I haven't finished a playthrough yet so I can't confirm or deny that.

Solario32Assault rifle overkill helps speed up those kills nicely.

Crimson DrifterCan you tell me why its awful? It seemed to have helped 25 people...

BiG PaPa ChIlLYou need to specify to be a soldier. Correct me if I'm wrong but unless you have applied the weapon mastery your character can still use the assault rifle, but it is impractical to use.
