The Assault Guns skill reflects a soldier's proficiency with assault weapons. The assault skill is a combination of the ability to quickly identify friend from foe in tight combat situations, and to fire a rifle at the latter, not the former. Weapons that use the Assault Guns skill tend to be good all-round weapons, with decent damage, accuracy and rate of fire.
Character needs to hit enemies 3 times to gain one point of this skill.
Since the 'main' weapon at any stage of the game will be some form of assault rifle, it is nice to have many soldiers with good levels of this skill.
