M16A2 M203

The M16A2 M203 is a variant of the M16A2 fitted with a M203 underbarrel grenade launcher and a flip up leaf sight for use with the launcher. The M203 can be selected with the "F" key, and can use high explosives grenades, flares (both white and green), and smoke grenades.

The leaf sights for the launcher zeroes at 100m and adds roughly 25m of range per quadrant. The standard sights are slightly off; shots hit above the front post and slightly under the bottom quadrant. M203 HE kills in a 5m radius and can wound at 10m. It arms itself in flight and detonates on impact, avoiding death due to misfire.

This weapon can be found on any military grade spawn except from helicopter crash sites. The M16A2 can use standard magazines, as well as 30Rnd. STANAG SD, which will deplete the weapon's range but zombies will react as it was a silent shot. They will still create a normal muzzle flash and sound normal to players.

When aiming the M16A2 M203, it's important to note that your shot will not land on the front post. Your shot placement will nearly always land above. Draw a line on the posts left and right of the center to aim effectively. As a reference, this screenshot shows where to aim, courtesy of a post by fireball on Dev-Heaven.

This is a situational gun, the pay off is the 203 grenade launcher. If you plan on encountering a group of 3-5 people from a distance this is your gun. The 203 HE rounds are kinda hard to find, there's also 203 Flares & Smoke. When the gun is equipped, on default keyboard setups, Press F to select to M203, If you have a HE round aim the Leaf sights to appropriate range of target and fire. If you have a 203 Flare aim straight up in the sky ( yes at night ) and fire the flare, It last's about 10 to 15 seconds, Lighting of flare is excellent.

Note: A 203 HE round will not detonate if its fired under 25 meters or so...So be safe and give it 30 meters+ and you should be fine.

The only downside this gun to me personally, is the fact that DayZ take into affect. The gun and barrel length, which makes this gun rather awkward to use indoors or close quarters. I also do not find the iron sights very effective.

Maybe its just me, or this weapon is far more than 80m audible range.

Keep in mind the audible range is referring to zombies. you personally as a player and other players can hear the weapons much further.

Ironsights almost unusable on moving targets. I would take even an AK over this
