"Thermal Assault Rifle. Oversized white hot bullets wreak high single target damage and burn after effects."
The RIA 20 Striker is a semi-automatic Thermal assault rifle featured in SAS: Zombie Assault 4, and is one of the first assault rifles you will get.
The Striker, being a Thermal weapon, deals damage over time, and could be described as a weaker, semi-auto version of the ZCS Wipeout from SAS 3.
Compared to the RIA 20 DSC, its physical equivalent, the Striker deals higher damage and has a higher rate of fire than the DSC (On the mobile version however, the Striker has a lower rate of fire than the DSC). This gun is almost a direct upgrade from the DSC apart from magazine size and ammunition cost, having more expensive ammo because of the Thermal damage it deals.
This weapon is somewhat effective against various low level enemies except for fire-resistant zombies due to its Thermal damage type. The Striker is obtainable fairly early, and is a useful weapon for early to early mid-stage gameplay.
Even though the gun appears to have rather high DPS for its drop level, it fires semi-automatically, and not many people can click at a rate of 10 clicks per second continuously. Thus, that is not the actual DPS of the weapon, but is actually much lower, but that depends on how fast you click.
The RIA 20 Striker uses the same structure of RIA 20 DSC with a longer muzzle, the same telescopic sight of Para, a more realistic magazine design. It also has a red glowing line on its body, which is a sign to identify a Rubicon weapon with thermal damage.
This is the weapon that the Assault class appears to be holding in the class selection picture, and in the trailer.
Like other Thermal Rubicon weapons, this has two red stripes on the magazine (black stripes on the version), possibly to indicate that the magazine is for use in a thermal weapon. Say, to avoid loading a RIA 20 Para's magazine inside a Striker.
This weapon's silhouette is used in the primary weapon slots when said slot is empty.
