  — Item Description 

The M16A3 Elite is an upgrade of the default M16A3 weapon. As a default upgrade weapon, the M16A3 Elite is sent to the player's inbox once the rank of Colonel/III is reached, for permanent duration.


The M16A3 Elite comes with an integrated ACOG TA1 Scope. It follows the Elite Set design with a tiger stripe pattern in various shades of brown and green on the stock and the barrel. A tiger head is visible on the stock as well as a tan stripe running down the magazine. Additional differences between this and the normal M16A3 are a higher portability and improved firepower. It maintains the faster draw rate of the M16A3 Professional, as well as the reduced reload time of the M16A3 Veteran.



  • Despite being able to remove the carry handle to attach optics to the weapon directly in real life, the scope is still attached to a mount on top of the carry handle in a similar fashion to the M16A2.
