The AA-99 is an early assault rifle with a lower rate of fire than an SMG, but a much higher damage per shot with huge 11mm rounds.

AA-99 overview

The AA-99 is a very short assault rifle manufactured by Allied Armaments. Firing 11mm rounds which are enormous by contemporary standards, the AA-99 can hit like a truck.

While other armaments like the Grendel and Maelstrom have it beat in terms of rate-of-fire, the AA-99 boasts a higher raw power.

With the stability and low recoil behind each shot, the AA-99 could well be one of the best Starfield weapons, especially if you’re in long to mid range combat. Consider adding a scope to improve your accuracy at longer distances.
