M16A2 is an assault rifle and an upgraded version of the M16 featured in CrossFire.
Compared to its predecessor, M16A1, the M16A2 is much more stable and has the capability to have 1-hit headshot kills at any range. This outclasses the M16A1 in every way and puts the M16A2 in the same league as the M4A1 rifles. In some versions, the M16A2 has a higher magazine capacity of 35-rounds with 105 in reserve, while other versions only feature the 30/90 ammunition clip.
With its low price, solid power and stability, the M16A2 is a very respectable choice for beginners and a good addition to anyone's inventory, although this gun can easily being outclassed by other weapons such as Steyr TMP.
Available in all CF versions
- While capable of operating fully automatic in game, real-life M16A2 are capable of 3-round burst and semi-automatic only. This trait has been adapted into the newest Digital Camo variant.
- Because of their similar body shape, M16A2's killmark has "A2" written inside the body to make it different from the M16 killmark.
- In CF Vietnam, although the M4A1 (the upgraded rifle variant of M16A2) is sold by GP in Item Shop, this gun is being placed in Black Market (GP crates). This make M16A2 rare and not many players care about this gun since there are more OPed weapons in Item Shop and Black Market nowadays (Steyr TMP, Serbu Super-Shorty, AN94, 9A-91) unless players really want this gun in their collection.
