Mini-FOT Logo.pngThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

The M-14 succeeded the M1 Garand as the standard US Army Rifle. It chambered the NATO standard 7.62mm round and like its predecessor, was noted for its reliability and ease of operation.

The M-14 is a Small Gun in Fallout Tactics.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Battle rifle. To modify, please edit the source page.

The M-14 is a selective-fire, gas-operated automatic rifle created in 1954 by Springfield Armory. It fires .303 and utilizes a 20-round magazine. The gas system features an automatic gas cutoff feature, which limits the amount of gases used to operate the weapon. The rotating bolt has a roller instead of the simple lug, which connects the bolt to the operating rod. The M-14 succeeded the M1 Garand as the standard US Army rifle from 1959 to 1970, until replaced by the M16A1. It is a reliable weapon offering high lethality, long range and good penetration.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

With a better range but lower damage than the AK-47, and the same AP costs as a bunch of similar weapons, this weapon is more suited to a sniper. Because you only find it in a place without any 7.62mm rounds, the M-14's real use is simply going to be a backup weapon.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Peoria, x3 can be found in a locker in the South West part of the store

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although the description of the weapon says the M-14 chambered for 7.62mm ammunition, it actually uses .303, probably an oversight from the developers to correct the description.
