It is one of the most commonly-dropped and found weapons in the game, and is therefore one of the most easily upgraded. The player starts with this weapon, alongside the Heavy Machine Gun and Shotgun. It has the largest magazine capacity along with the highest rate of fire of any weapon in the game. Its accuracy, while not the best, is still dependable in attaining headshots, which will take down soldier units in three or four hits. It has a significantly smaller scatter compared to the Heavy Machine Gun, and thus is more suitable for taking down enemies from a distance. To many, it is the most versatile weapon in the game.
When fully upgraded, it gets a wider barrel, a diagonally-ended magazine, and a bayonet below the barrel.
Its melee attack is a rapid flurry of punches, which can be used to a speedrunner's advantage in a technique known as "melee dashing".
