Standard issue rifle for U.S. forces since the Vietnam war. Accurate and lightweight, though lacking in effective range. Due to the length of the weapon, it is awkward to use indoors.
This variant is equipped with a Trijicon 4x32 ACOG, and contrary to its real world counterpart, has longer effective range than any other automatic weapon in the game. However, the magnifying scope makes engaging in close quarters more difficult, especially on servers without enabled crosshairs.
The M16A4 in DayZ cannot be zeroed, unlike its real-world counterpart.
