Basics Edit

The M82 is the strongest, heaviest, and most expensive rifle in the game. It costs $100,000 to buy and $309,000 to fully upgrade. It is perfectly accurate when zoomed in and can hit a zombie from across the entire map with relative ease.

Upgrades Edit

Upgrade Description Effect Levels Price
Ammo Efficiency Reduces the amount of bullets taken per ammo missing, from the ammo box. Ammo Taken -1 3 $8,000 $12,000 $16,000
AP Rounds Increases the damage of shots. Damage +500 6 $25,000
Improved Stock Reduces the recoil when firing. Recoil -50% 1 $15,000
Center Mass Shots that hit the torso will deal headshot damage. Torso Headshot Damage: Yes 1 $20,000

Strategies Edit

  • As with other rifles, aim for the head. If you have the Center Mass upgrade, torsoshots are fine too.
    • With this upgrade, headshot related perks such as Head Hunter and Marksman will trigger their headshot bonuses when shot at the torso.
    • Pardoxically, torso shots with this upgrade will not count as a headshot in the Unlocks Menu.
  • If there is not enough ammo for another Minigun but more damage is needed, the M82 may be a good choice due to its higher damage/bullet.
  • Be sure to aim your shots well, as the reload time for this weapon is very hefty.
  • Take ammo from the box when you have ten shots remaining - this way, you will always have spare ammo.
  • Be sure to pick up the Steady Grip perk as it reduces the recoil significantly on the M82.

Trivia Edit

  • The M82 does much more damage per bullet than the Minigun and even more with the ammo efficiency upgrade.
  • Fully upgraded, it can deal up to 5,000 damage in a single shot, the most out of any weapon.
    • This works out to 2,500 damage per bullet, meaning a full clip can deal a total of 25,000 damage.
    • Headshots multiply the bullet damage by 3, meaning a full clip can do up to 75,000 damage with perfect accuracy.
  • The AMR weapon type of the M82 stands for Anti Material Rifle.
