The WM16 rifle, officially designated Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16, is a family of military rifles adapted from the ArmaLite AR-15 rifle for the United States military. It was first put into service in 1963, becoming the standard U.S. assault rifle by 1969, replacing the M14 rifle.

The standard M16 fires the 5.56x45mm NATO round, but can be modified to fire different cartridges with the addition of a new barrel, bolt, and sometimes firing pin. The original M16, A2 and A4 variants fire in three-round burst or semi-automatic, while the A1 and A3 variants fire fully-automatic or semi-automatic.

It has been largely replaced by the lighter M4 Carbine in the U.S. military but still sees use in training and is still widely used by other miltaries throughout the world.

The M16A4 is an assault rifle featured in Insurgency.

With a low supply point cost of 1, high controllability, and high accuracy, the M16A4 is a very cost-effective weapon. However, the long barrel of the M16A4 and its lack of a fully automatic fire mode limits its close quarter combat capabilities. Furthermore, the presence of the front sight when attaching a red dot sight or holographic sight obstructs the player's sight picture.

Trivia Edit

Insurgency

  • Prior to the "Insurgency: Nightfall" update, the M16A4 used flip-up iron sights instead of the carry handle.
  • In the Insurgency: Early Access, the M16A4 was actually a M16A3 with an unused M203. The change from the A3 to the A4 variant was most likely done to increase weapon diversity.
  • The "F90" imprint on the stock of the weapon is an inventory identification number.
  • The fire selector is permanently set to the safe position on the weapon model, and does not change when switching fire mode, the fire selector simply rotates back to the safe position when switching fire modes.
