The SW9 Assault Rifle is an assault rifle in Just Cause 4.


The rifle resembles an ARX-160, IWI ACE and the Imbel IA2 assault rifles. It has an under-barrel grenade launcher as its Secondary Fire. It also has an aiming laser mounted on the side, but this doesn't function in the game.

Interestingly Black Hand Statues use a slightly different version of this weapon. It is probably an older version (SW8?), as it does not hold an aiming laser and has no rail to mount one.


It performs well in most situations, but requires headshots when going against enemies with body armor.

The grenade launcher only holds 5 grenades, but it's a convenient thing to have for tougher destructible objects.



  • Initially this weapon had 35 in a magazine with 105 total ammunition plus 5 grenades, but the May 2019 patch increased it to 136 with 45 in a magazine.
