The TAR is an assault rifle available to the Terran Republic. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The Terran Assault Rifle, similar to the Icon NC.png GR-22 and Icon VS.png H-V45, is a close-range assault rifle that sacrifices a large amount of accuracy and damage range for amongst the highest close-range damage-per-second in its class and exceptional mobility.

Similar to those other two weapons, the TAR features a tight hip cone-of-fire, as well as access to an Advanced Laser Sight. With this in addition to the weapon's 0.75x movement speed modifier while aiming-down-sight, in contrast to the typical 0.5x multiplier found on most weapons, the TAR finds itself as an exceptionally mobile weapon platform, as a trade-off for heavy penalties the weapon suffers when fighting at range.
