Tactics[edit | edit source]

With an extremely long range and excellent damage, the M-24 is adept in both raiding and compound defense, being able to pick off enemies from a safe distance and counter hostile snipers.

However, its slow attack speed, long minimum range and high move speed penalty make it a good deal less useful in missions, where enemies are far more numerous. Its high ammo cost also makes it impractical to bring one, especially given its inefficiency against large groups.

Grouping its wielder with other survivors will help to counteract its weaknesses. In addition, its accuracy is somewhat low for a rifle, so handing it to a survivor that has a high Ranged combat skill and/or specializes in long rifles is recommended.
