It is a powerful weapon with a decent zoom (about the same as the Dragon assault rifle - 2x magnification). Its shots penetrate soft objects, doors and enemies much like the DY357 Magnum. Along with the KF7 Special, it is one of the only assault rifles that can be dual-wielded. As a classic weapon, the AR53 has no secondary function, and there is no in-game description.
The use of the AR53 in single player is unlocked by getting gold medals in the firing range, as with all classic weapons. Alternatively, the All Guns in Solo cheat will also give you all the classic weapons.
- The AR53 was also featured in Goldeneye 007 for Nintendo 64, as the AR33 Assault Rifle.
- The initials AR53 are most likely a play on the word arse; the British spelling of the American ass.
