Battlefield 3 M4A1 Overview
Magazine: 30 rounds
Rate of Fire: 800 RPM
Factions: USMC / USA
The Battlefield 3 M4A1 is the starting gun for players using the Engineer kit when you are fighting for the
USMC. This is essentially a carbine version of the M16A3 in terms of relative strength, firing speed, and magazine
This gun is just like the M16A3 Assault Rifle except it has a little less kickback when firing but also has less
accuracy when firing from longer distances. This makes this gun best at short-mid ranged combat - typically working
best just outside of shotgun range.
Strengths of the M4A1
Thanks to the fast firing rate and low kickback, this is actually a really good close-quarters weapon. While not
as strong as a shotgun in extremely close combat, it is a good weapon to use firing from the hip when you have a
little more room. From a moderate distance, it also is pretty potent when aiming.

Weaknesses of the M4A1
Even though it says it is good at mid-ranged combat, I disagree and think that a typical Assault Rifle edges
this out in that regard. It is very weak at long-ranged combat, as it just does not have the accuracy or power
required to shoot bullets that far.
Attachments for the M4A1
Since this gun is good at close-quarters and short-ranged combat, your attachments should reflect and emphasize
that. You do not want to use a scope with zoom with this weapon, simply because it is not accurate or powerful
enough to get much use out of this feature. Instead, opt for a red dot sight or something that helps you aim
without actually zooming in.
For gadgets, you can either use something which emphasizes stealth (Suppressor) or its short-range strength,
such as the Foregrip or Laser Sight. Both will help you aim better when firing from the hip, so they are nice
attachments to have.
You may end up going with an Underslung Rail though if you want to make use out of all the Engineering gadgets.
It is really up to you and depends on how much you have unlocked on the Engineer Kit.
Battlefield 3 M4A1 Guide Conclusion
The M4A1 is a decent starting weapon, but nothing to make a career out of. I prefer to move on to the SCAR-H
when possible or even one of the later carbines. Just remember that as an Engineer, weapons like the M4A1 are
intended more for your own defense than they are for offense. Sure you will need to score some kills to level up,
but the Engineer's real purpose is to use explosives and machines.
