The M16 is a 3 round burst Assault Rifle in Advanced Warfare. Along with the AK47 this is another returning weapon from old school Call of Duty titles. The M16 first appeard in Black Ops 1 which went great with the games Vietnam setting. There was nothing like running around Jungle with an M16 and the Flamethrower attached…good times.
When the M16 was first released on Xbox on the 1st of September it was nothing special and received a lot of criticism for being under-powered and pretty much useless. It has since been patched which has improved the weapons range significantly. It now kills with one burst from 16 meters away, double that of what is was pre-patch.
Recommended attachments for the M16 are the Red Dot Sight, Foregrip and Extended Mags.
- Damage: 45 – 30 – 25 or 3 to 4 shots kill.
