The M4A1 is a selective fire assault rifle chambered in the 5.56x45mm round. It can be found around barricades and at military loot spawns, as well as cities such as Kin and Hark.

Performance Edit

The M4A1 is a balanced weapon, capable of handling long range engagements to some extent, as well as close quarters and medium range. It has decent hip fire accuracy, the second best in the 5.56x45mm assault rifle family excluding the Patriot. It has decent ADS accuracy and low recoil. Its fire rate allows it to drop enemies faster than a SCAR-L would.

Recommended Use Edit

It is recommended to use this weapon in medium range engagements, where its hip fire accuracy and fire can allow for an easy killing, and although it can be used in long range engagements, it may be outmatched by other higher tier military weapons.

The M4A1's common ammo along with its high capacity can make it a good zombie-killing weapon.
