Well I have used the M16. I will say that If I had to use it the only I would use it is with a red dot. If there is no attachment on the weapon it is piss poor. Like you said, but to me the only thing that makes the M16 good is when you are shooting from a long distance, because of the accuracy. The Type - 95 Is the worst gun in the game to. I'd say that Its an all right gun but I would not prefer it, unless your playing hardcore.

I picked up 2 different M16's in one game off of dead bodies. One was running Silencer and the other some different attachments. So I would assume people still do use it.

I use it to get the challenges done. It's not bad with some sort of scope (iron sights aren't so pretty) and rapid fire. It definitely kills in one burst provided you're an accurate shot. The reason it's been downplayed so much is because the Type 95 is a copy/paste with a ton more damage, less recoil and less spread in hipfire (depending on how the most recent hotfix changed it).
It's still a decent gun.

I love the M16 now!!! I feel like when the game first came out during my 1st prestige it sucked. I stopped using a 3-burst gun altogether because I didn't want to use the Type 95 because everyone does. During my 5th prestige I tried it out again and I was really impressed. I don't know if they "silently" buffed the gun or not, but to me they did something and it's a lot better. It definitely isn't the Type 95, but to me it suffices it's purpose at long range/medium range. My K/D is a 2 or around there with the gun, so that's deff. gone up and I got autumn camo for it in my 6th prestige.

I personally prefer it over the T95, it's beast without Rapid fire, 2 bursts long distance, then 1 burst up close, so just imagine it with rapid fire , plus it's iron sight is good enough so you can use something like a silencer or heartbeat (yes a heartbeat, youmad?)... but yer people overlook it because the T95 is a bit better, and of course people can't stand the fact of having to work to make something useful.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 13, 2011 8:12 AM (in response to DaveW)Re: Does anyone out there use the M16?
I started using it this presitige. Got it up to level 30 about.
My god, it's the most inconsistant and downright awful AR in the game. I'll sometimes get 3 burst into someone close range and they wont die, then I'l 1 burst someone at long range.
If it's consistency wasn't bad enough. The attatchments you can use are limited. It has the worst iron sights in the game, so you need to have a red dot on it. But then you also need to have rapid fire to make up with it's inconsistency.
So you are forced to use the 2 attatchments proficiency.
Even with all that, it's just a horrible gun, with pathetic accuracy. There is not one aspect about it which is better than the type 95, other than it being unlocked at a lower rank.

I tested it at multiple ranges at walls so I could check out the spread. Even with kick the recoil, at times, makes it completely unusable. It will stitch 3 bullet holes across too far a distance(meaning you'll have to fire 2-4 times even if you have good accuracy), and very seldom place those 3 rounds in close proximity. That is even at the close side of mid range.
IMO, most useless AR in the game.

Sure do. I have had an M.O.A.B with the M-16 in Free for all. It is a solid gun. HOWEVER. It is only solid when ran a certain way. I have been trying to get MOAB's with all guns. The M-16 was actually easy.... did it second try. Special Killstreaks........ lol. Here is ( what i found ) to be the best way to run that gun. 2 attachments. Red Dot ( w/stock dot) and rapid fire ( IT NEEDS RF) scavanger, hard, sitrep( all pro). Unlock quickdraw. then slight of hand. then assasin. All money from there. It is solid man. Just try to keep it at its strength. Mid to long. I run dual scorpians. When people come up on me. i just switch. sometimes the M-16 can get the kill but no consistantly. Keep using this gun and do not give up on it. When you think M-16. you think of the black opps M-16. These are different.... remember that.

I managed to get 1000 kills with the M16 but with the purpose of getting the M16 emblem but to use it as one of my preferred guns is not in the agenda.
Most of the maps are close quarters and requires more than 3 bursts to kill if the enemy is moving which is most of the time anyway. So, you easily lose out, even if you have a solid hit with the first burst, the enemy can easily kill you back with an automatic.
The M16 is consistent in MW1 and MW2 with that 1 solid burst kill. In MW2, it is on par with the one burst kill FAMAS. But in MW3, it lags behind Type95 so making this weapon a silly choice for gamers.
And thinking about it, you have a burst weapon (Type95) that kills in one burst making this effective in close, medium and long range and another burst weapon (M16) that would requires 2 solid burst shots (and more if enemy is moving), why the hell would you choose the M16?
Even if It is unlocked early, the disadvantages in using the M16 are still so great as compared to other assault rifles. Experience wise, the M16 is the worst assault rifle in the game, and the Type95 not only made it redundant but totally useless.

I use it in place of the type 95 now because i like the way it looks on the screen the sights seem lower IDK why, but it is very good when you get the hang of it. May I suggest the MK14, that my friends is the best assault rifle in the gameIMO.

I would use it if I was a bigger fan of just wounding people.
I'm sure in IW fashion, they wanted to be so different from Treyarch they even made the guns opposite.
That thing was a monster in BO. MW3? Marshmallow shooter
