The M107 is a .50 cal sniper rifle that is used by both the USMC and U.S. Army forces in ArmA 2.

Overview

The M107 is a recoil-operated, semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle with a rotating bolt that is chambered to fire the .50 BMG round.

It loads from 10 round box magazines and can attain a fire rate of up to 120 rounds per minute, with a muzzle velocity of 850 m/s. The M107 is always fitted with an integrated (non-functional) bipod as well as a variable power sniper scope that has a magnification zoom of 4.5x-14x, along with the (optional) choice of using a thermal scope instead. It cannot be suppressed or be fitted with laser pointers/flashlights, but can be zeroed up to a maximum range of 1,200 metres.

The extreme range of the .50 cal round makes it perfect for long distance anti-infantry sniping.

With an effective range of between 1,000 and up to 2,000 metres, the M107 is a devastating sniper weapon that poses a significant threat to both light vehicles and infantry. As an anti-materiel rifle, its .50 BMG round can disable light vehicles with a few hits to the engine, while infantry can be killed with a single round regardless of where it hits them on the body. Unlike its British and Russian counterparts, the M107 feeds from 10-round boxes as opposed to 5-round magazines (although the AS50 can make use of the M107's magazines).

The M107's main drawbacks are its bulky design and excessive weight (which is to be expected for a weapon of its size) and higher dispersion for long distance shooting compared to the other AMRs in its class. While both the KSVK and the M107 are similar weight and accuracy-wise, it is noticably less accurate when compared to the AS50 while also weighing much more.

This renders the M107 essentially useless if the operator isn't already prone and in a static position, as the combination of the M107's recoil along with its heavy weight means that it's basically impossible to make proper use of it while standing up.

Trivia

  • M107 is simply the U.S. military's designation for the Barrett "M82A1" sniper rifle.
    • It is almost identical to the M82A1 save for using a bipod with spiked feet, different take-down pins, and has a rear monopod as a standard feature (however, the in-game M107's model actually lacks the monopod socket).
