The M16 is a full-automatic rifle appearing in the original TimeSplitters. It has a high rate of fire, similar to that of the Tommy Gun. The primary and secondary fire do the same damage. It is also equipped with a zoom even as there is no scope visible.

There is no difference between primary and secondary fire. Like most high fire-rate weapons, bots in the original TimeSplitters either fire groups of bullets with a very short pause in-between or some tougher bots fire constantly until your health is critical.

When "if best" is switched on, the M16 ranks as the 15th best weapon on TS1, on the same level as the Tommy Gun (x2). In its dual-wield variant, the M16 (x2) ranks as the 9th best weapon, on the same level as the Raygun.


  • The weapon itself resembles an M4 carbine. This might be accidental since the M16 is longer than the M4, and the in-game model is a short one.
