Battlefield 3 M4A1
The M4A1 is the standard engineer carbine in Battlefield 3, and is available from the start as the main weapon, before any unlocks. The M4A1 was featured in previous Battlefield games, and now in Battlefield 3, can be customized in a number of ways with a number of unlocks. The M4A1 is great at medium and close ranges, but lacks the power over distance compared to regular rifles in Battlefield 3.

M4A1 stats

  • Single shot/full auto/3-round burst modes
  • Maximum effective range of 500m
  • Rate of fire: 700-950 RPM
  • Weight: 2.88 KG
  • Ammo capacity: 30 rounds

    M4A1 does not have Burst fire.
    The M4 does, which is basicly the M4A1 with burst fire, but unlocked in the later half of the engineer tree.

    I believe that Chuck Norris cried on my M4A1, then Bruce Lee blessed it, and then Joseph McCarthy forged the bullets, cuz my M4A1 has racked up 421 kills. For my M16A3, all of that occurred, but also John Wayne used it to kill a deer, then gave it to me.
