  • The Dealer uses an M16 to defend himself if you attack him
  • Though called the M16, the rifle closely resembles the M4A1 assault rifle, (if you look closely at the weapon itself, you can tell how very closely it is similar.), before Beta v.1.9
  • In Beta v.1.9, the model was changed to more closely resemble the M16A1.
  • Can be used to mow down hordes of the undead, but constant firing will only last about 30 seconds (if unmodified).
  • In Beta v.1.9
  • Changed level from 76 to 94 in Beta v.1.15
