The M16 is the default Assault Rifle in Sudden Attack.
The classic M16 was first deployed by the US Army during the Vietnam War. While disliked at first, it eventually proved its utility, becoming the most popular and most produced military assault rifle in the world.
As a default weapon, it is generally not very powerful and is often used by newer players. Since it is always available, it is a weapon you can fall back on if you do not have the points to buy a better weapon. Its accuracy is standard for most Assault Rifles and, if used in the right hands, can headshot enemies very well.
Firing the M16 semi-automaticlly doesn't bring out much damage, and it should only be used for long-range encounters. Going full auto will greatly increase the recoil and spread, making it ineffective. For best use of the gun, fire in bursts at the Shoulders/Head region.
