The MA5A Assault Rifle is an elite unit weapon developed in 2525. It is a remarkable weapon, and one that is favored by special forces over the MA5B.

Mechanics

The MA5A has two distinct design features, three barrels, and liquid metal ammunition. The first is quite obvious. All three barrles fire in unision, so a single tap of the trigger will release three rounds. This dramatically increases rate of fire and and damage. Each barrel fires bullets of at 15 rps, which means that the gun fires at a total 45 rounds per second. This means that ammo is also a priority, it has triple the ammount of ammo as the MA5B Assault Rifle, but they both can expend their clips in exactly the same amount of time, its just the MA5A has triple the firepower of the MA5B. However to hold this much ammo, in such small a clip, it needs a special ammo system. It uses Liquid Metal Ammunition, or LAM rounds, to hold all this ammo. It reduces space, and the mechanisms inside each clip form the LAM into bullets at incredibly high speeds.

Users

Though this weapon is not mainstream, it is widely used. The SPARTAN-Xss used it tremendously, and several elite marine divisons have access to it. Also, many of the marines and ODSTs participating in the Invasion of FT-329 used this weapon or had armories full of it.
