The M16A4 is a 5.56x45mm assault rifle and the fourth generation of the M16 series. It is equipped with a removable carrying handle and a full length quad Picatinny rail for mounting optics and other ancillary devices. Before October 2016, the M16A4 was the standard issue rifle for all U.S. Marine Corps (until it was replaced by the M4 Carbine) and is the current issue to Marine Corps' recruits in both MCRD San Diego and MCRD Parris Island.

The M16A4 is an assault rifle featured in Insurgency. It is exclusive to the Security Forces. It has a 30-round magazine, easy controllability, and features semi-automatic and 3-round burst fire modes. The M16A4 can also attach an M203 grenade launcher with certain classes.

With a low supply point cost of 1, high controllability, and high accuracy, the M16A4 is a very cost-effective weapon. However, the long barrel of the M16A4 and its lack of a fully automatic fire mode limits its close quarter combat capabilities. Furthermore, the presence of the front sight when attaching a red dot sight or holographic sight obstructs the player's sight picture.

Trivia Edit

  • Prior to the "Insurgency: Nightfall" update, the M16A4 used flip-up iron sights instead of the carry handle.
  • The player never uses the charging handle except for when first selecting the weapon to check the chamber.
  • In the Insurgency: Early Access, the M16A4 was actually a M16A3 with an unused M203. The change from the A3 to the A4 variant was most likely done to increase weapon diversity.
  • The "F90" imprint on the stock of the weapon is an inventory identification number.
  • The fire selector is permanently set to the safe position on the weapon model, and does not change when switching fire mode, the fire selector simply rotates back to the safe position when switching fire modes.
