The WM1 Garand is a .30-06 caliber semi-automatic rifle that was the standard U.S. service rifle during World War II and the Korean War and also saw limited service during the Vietnam War. Most M1 rifles were issued to U.S. forces, though many hundreds of thousands were also provided as foreign aid to American allies. The Garand is still used by drill teams and military honor guards. It is also widely used by civilians for hunting, target shooting, and as a military collectible.
When empty, the M1 Garand ejects its clip with a distinct "ping" sound, serving as a useful indicator to the user that the rifle is out of ammunition. However, this feature works both ways; nearby enemies with a keen ear may be alerted by the noise and deduce that their opponent has an empty rifle.
Unlike most weapons in the game, tactical reloads are a lot slower than empty reloads on the Garand, since the user needs to manually pull back the bolt and remove the clip before inserting a new one. As such, in some situations it may be easier to empty the rifle first before reloading.

- There is a secret reload animation that depicts the bolt prematurely (and painfully) closing on the player's thumb after inserting the clip. In real-life this situation is known as "Garand Thumb" and happens when the rifle's user neglects holding back the bolt handle after reloading the clip, which causes it to slam forward as soon as the new clip is inserted.
- When a tactical reload is done, the user manually pulls back the bolt and ejects the clip, which makes the same ping noise as when the rifle runs empty. This is not true to real life; the ping would not be heard as loudly since the ammunition inside would not allow the clip's walls to reverberate as much, which is what causes the ping sound for an empty clip.
