The WBarrett M82A1, standardized by the U.S. military as the M107, is a recoil-operated, semi-automatic anti-materiel sniper system developed by the American Barrett Firearms Manufacturing company. Despite its designation as an anti-materiel rifle, it is used by some armed forces as an anti-personnel system.
The M107CQ is a variant of the M107, which is 9 inches shorter and 5 pounds lighter than the standard M107. It is designed for use in vehicles and close combat.
The M82A1 CQ is an anti-material rifle featured in Insurgency: Sandstorm. The weapon is exclusively available to the Security Marksman role.
Considering it is an anti-material rifle, the M82A1 CQ along with the M99 are capable of inflicting a one hit kill on any enemy it hits, usually causing dismemberment or decapitation upon striking an enemy at closer ranges. It also has really powerful penetration capability and has a really high velocity that makes it akin to a hitscan weapon, unless the target is extremely far away, at which case the player will need to lead their target. The M82A1 CQ can also destroy a technical in just 2 shots, providing that the vehicle is hit at the very front.
Due to its barrel length, its weight and its slow rate of fire, the rifle is ill-suited for close range combat and can even hinder the player's movement speed. Aside from that, the weapon can also take a while to unholster and holster again. The rifle's firing sound is also very loud; rapidly firing the weapon, as little as five subsequent shots, can make the player and other nearby players deaf for a few seconds as if they were close to an explosion. The player should also be careful when fighting near friendlies as a misplaced shot can severely cripple their health and a headshot will instantly kill them.
