The M-417 is a long rifle featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.

Background Edit

An upsized version of the M-416, this battle rifle retains many of the same improvements over the M4 carbine. Its biggest difference from the M-416 is that it fires the hard hitting 7.62mm NATO round from a longer barrel, greatly increasing its stopping power and range.

Favored by some special forces and law enforcement units as a designated marksman's rifle.

How to obtain Edit

  • It can be scavenged during Level 41+ missions.

Recycling products Edit

  • Barrel x 1
  • Bolt Assembly x 1
  • Sights x 1
  • Machined Parts x Variable (dependent on the item's Level andattachments/conditions)

Tactics Edit

A relatively fast rate of fire combined with excellent damage per shot and long effective range lets it rip apart targets with ease from a safe distance. However, while a decently fast reload and relatively large magazine leaves it less vulnerable to being swarmed than other long rifles, it's still not recommended for close quarters and is best used from a distance, preferably with support from other survivors.

Pros Edit

  • Very High Damage
  • Long Effective Range
  • High RoF[1] (vs other long rifles)
  • Large Magazine (vs other long rifles)
  • Reloads Quickly (vs other long rifles)

Cons Edit

  • High Ammo Cost
  • Inaccurate (vs other long rifles)
  • Moderate Move Speed Penalty

Trivia Edit

  • The M-416 originally used the same inventory icon as the M-417 unless it had the Suppressed or Scopedconditions.
  • The M-417's current 3D model originally belonged to the M-416, and vice-versa.
