Alternates with grenades.

The M16 is a classic military-issue machine gun that upon reload, switches projectiles to grenade launcher.

M16 is a gun. Reloading alternates between bursts of three bullets and a grenade launcher.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Assault and Battery - If the player also has Shock Rifle, the guns are dual wielded.
  • Synergy Keep The Change - If the player has Blank Companion's Ring, it will occasionally trigger a blank upon shooting the last bullet in a magazine of the M16
    • This "blank trigger" shares the same internal 10-second cooldown that the actual ring has. That is to say, if your M16 triggers a blank upon shooting the last bullet, and then you use an active item within the next 10 seconds, the blanking effect won't work with the active item on top of that.
  • Synergy Mmmmmmmmm MMMMmm! - If the player has M1 and M1911, increases the damage, maximum ammo, and fire rate of all three guns by 25%.
  • Each grenade consumes as much ammo as a single bullet. A potential strategy is to fire 1 bullet in machine gun mode, then switch to grenade mode, allowing for greater DPS, ammo efficiency, and the ability to hit multiple enemies at once.
    • You can also fire all 3 grenades, then quickly switch to a different weapon. The M16 will passively reload after 1.2 seconds (its regular reload time), while still retaining the grenade firing mode.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The name of the Synergy Mmmmmmmmm MMMMmm! synergy is likely a reference to the distinctive guitar notes prefacing each verse in "Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Both the song and all three guns are heavily associated with the Vietnam War.
  • The “Underslung,” and “Hip Fire Only,” descriptions are references to the movie, “Predator,” where the main character, Dutch, (portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger) never looks down his M16’s (w/ grenade launcher) sights and always shoots from the hip.

  • Immediately switching weapons after initiating a reload while holding the M16 results in the sounds for firing normally and firing grenades being swapped.
