Basics Edit

A well made 3 round burst assault rifle, coming at $35,000 it is an affordable assault rifle in the mid-game. The weapon is not used very often but, it will pack quite a punch. The reload takes a long amount of time so keeping distance from zombies is a recommended tactic. Performing Headshots proves effective with this weapon however its lifetime is short, extending it with upgrades will allow it to last a good long while. The overall recoil is quite low so hip fire or aiming down sights is great either way.

In summary a weapon well suited for a budget cost, lasts as long as it should and performs well. A good choice to fall to when lacking some firepower and suits mid game nicely. Headshots are a must with this weapon as a one burst kill is ideal. Keep distance and aim well and it serves well.

    • A max M16 deals 1,500 (Marksman4,500) damage per burst.

Strategies Edit

  • Buy damage upgrades in a way that ensures enemies always go down in one burst.
  • As the upgrades are rather lacking, don't expect the M16 to last long.
  • Keep in mind the low ammo capacity compared to other assault rifles.
  • This weapon is very ammo hungry, try to lengthen its lifetime with the Shadow Rounds perk.
  • Critical chance perks are a good way to bolster damage as each shot in the burst-fire can perform critical damage. The M16 at 4 weight is decent enough for making use of the Concealed Carry perk.
