Singularity Wiki

The AR9 Valkyrie Assault Rifle is an assault rifle found in Singularity, available in both the single player campaign and Multiplayer.

Ingame Description[]

The primary assault rifle of the USSR. The name means "chooser of the slain" and the weapon is a lethal combination of firepower, range, and accuracy.


  • This is the second weapon found on Katorga-12, found among the stacks in the school library next to the corpse of a Spetsnaz soldier.
  • When you fire this rifle, the "turbine" on the left side of the weapon will spin. This is probably a cooling fan.
  • This weapon and the Volk S4 Shotgun are the most commonly carried weapons by Spetsnaz soldiers, making ammo plentiful.
  • Required for the A Salt and Battery achievement.


  • Valkyrie translates as "chooser of the slain" in Old Norse. A very fitting name for an assault weapon.
  • The weapon also has a laser sight housed in a foregrip attachment on its model. While not used by the player, it can be seen when carried by Spetsnaz soldiers.
  • Like most Soviet/Russian weapon designs, it is very reminiscent of the AK series.
    • Its overall layout is rather similar to that of the AK-74U carbine rather than a full size assault rifle.
  • Its stock appears to be a slightly modified version of the one found on the modern day ACR Bushmaster
  • The Reflex sight also appears to be a Western design rather than Soviet, and also appear to be mounted on a Picatinny rail rather than the side mount normally favored by typical Soviet designs.
