This page contains information about the mod version of DayZ. Standalone information is available here.


The M4A1 is an assault rifle with moderate damage and a relatively quiet shot. It is similar to the M16A2, with the main difference being that the M4A1 has a shorter barrel, making it better suited for close range engagements, but quite inaccurate at longer ranges. Because of this, coupling this weapon with a sniper rifle is a good choice.

The damage of the M4A1 is quite average, taking 2 shots to kill zombies, 2 - 3 shots to incapacitate a survivor, and 4 - 5 total shots to kill them.

Luckily, these guns are generally common finds. These are good around based assault rifles in the game, and i'd always drop an AKS/AKM for this. Sure it's extremely basic, doesn't have grenade launchers or fancy scopes, but the M4A1 is a solid, simple gun for everyday use, and i wouldn't have a problem with going into a heavily infested town full of bandits/zombies because: 1. It's not rare, even though it's a military spawn. 2. It's got good range, accuracy, and ammo is common. 3. I don't cling onto it for dear life, so if i was killed in electro, i would say: "Meh, should of killed him earlier" instead of "OH GAWD MY L85 WHY WHY WHY!!!!!"

So, overall, good PVP, good for zombieh killing (With SD of course) and good for overal use and capacity. It's something i wouldn't just walk over, unlike a AKS or a M9. (Yes, I appreciate a M1911 over a military grade gun with no ammo.)
