The M1014 is a 12G shotgun that is primarily used by the U.S. Marines, as well as with U.S. Army forces in ArmA 2.

Overview Edit

The M1014 is a semi-automatic, pump-action combat shotgun that is chambered to fire 12 Gauge shotgun shells.

It can load either 8 round pellet or slug shell magazines, has a maximum fire rate of up to 120 rounds per minute, and a muzzle velocity of 396 m/s. The M1014 lacks the ability to mount any accessories or muzzle attachments.

The M1014 is a high-powered combat shotgun used by the U.S. military. It has an effective range of between 40 and up to 250 metres, though it's best employed for close quarters combat situations only.

Both the M1014 and its Russian counterpart are roughly comparable to each other, with their recoil, ammunition capacity, and dispersion being almost identical. The main difference with the M1014 is that its fire rate is far more slower due to using a pump-action operation, which makes it less useful compared to the Saiga 12K.

The M1014's sole saving grace are its ghost ring sights, which are more ergonomic to aim with compared to the cumbersome ironsights found on the Saiga 12K.

Trivia Edit

  • Though the M1014's model has a top rail modelled on it, there are no variants with optical sights mounted on them.
    • The in-game model's third person level-of-detail view also seems to lack a charging handle but is clearly visible in first person.
  • Along with the Saiga 12K, the M1014 was originally intended to have been in ArmA 3 as well where it would have been called the M4 SSAS (not to be confused with the M4 carbine). It can still be seen in early presentation videos released by Bohemia Interactive during ArmA 3's pre-Alpha phase of development.
    • The M4 SSAS simply used an updated port of the ArmA 2 M1014 model that would have supported optical sights on its top rail thanks to ArmA 3's dynamic attachment system.
    • Though an incomplete reloading animation (animation name: GestureReloadSSAS), sounds, and its icon are still unused, the actual model of the M4 itself no longer remains in the game files.
