The Ruger AC556F does slightly more damage than the Steyr, but has half the magazine capacity and a lesser range.
Despite being an assault rifle, the Ruger AC556F uses the submachine gun animations in the game.
Behind the scenes
The AC-556 is a selective-fire version of the Mini-14 marketed for military and law enforcement use. The design incorporates a selector on the right/rear of the receiver to select either semi-automatic, 3-round burst, or full-automatic fire modes; the manual safety at the front of the trigger guard operates the same as a standard Mini-14. The weapon was extensively used in the 80's television series The A-Team by all team members starting about season two.
