A phaser rifle is the Star Trek Federation's equivalent of a modern sub-machinegun or assault rifle. Several different styles have appeared in the course of the series. They are presumably more accurate over long distances than a hand phaser, and they may have larger power supplies.

Phaser Rifles made during the Dominion War had trigger guards and scopes, accessories lacked by previous models. During the war, Starfleet did not have the option of sending every man through years of Academy training, so they needed weapons that were easier to use.
