Room restrict shotgunBenelli M4 or (X)M1014 (American version) is an automatic shotgun in Counter-Strike series and Counter-Strike Online. It was renamed to Leone YG1265 in some regions.

Overview

This 7 rounds, 12 gauge shotgun has a fast firing speed due to its semi-automatic function. It has lower recoil and lighter than the previous version, Benelli M3 but it has lower clip size and does lower damage.

After the Free Update patch, this weapon becomes a free default weapon in all player's inventories.

Advantages

  • Purchasable by both Counter-Terrorist and Terrorist
  • Moderate damage
  • Very high stun to zombies
  • High rate of fire
  • Light weight
  • Can be fired when reloading
  • Faster reload time compared to other shotguns
  • Free

Disadvantages

  • Low magazine capacity/reserved ammo
  • Useless in middle to long range
  • Expensive price

Variants

Xm1014red

The XM1014 Red has the same performance except it does a higher damage of 1% and the appearance is blood red. It is only available for Internet Cafe players or through some certain events.

BalrogXI

The BALROG-XI is an anti-zombie shotgun developed by Aegis Institute. When fired continuously, it will accumulate a grenade that can be used by right click that is very useful in wide range and can do fatal damage to zombies.

Blockas

An 8-round automatic shotgun built from a special set of blocks to resemble the XM1014. Its B mode allows to transform into a howitzer for a better performance, depending on the situation.

Tactics using M4

  • Aim upper than head in middle range, as the bullets will spread below than the crosshair.
  • Do not fire continuously except in very close range because it can make high recoil and wild spray pattern. It is also easy to run dry. It can hang the reload when this gun's ammo is dried while you are holding the fire button.
  • Jumping does not affect the accuracy of this gun. Jump to avoid bullets and shoot at the same time.

Tactics facing M4 users

Normal matches

  • Most of the players would not use M4 when playing normal matches due to low damage, low clip size, useless in middle to long range and wild recoil. So, its appearance is rare.
  • Avoid direct and close combat with its user. Team up with teammates, so that the M4 user will not have enough bullets to kill all of you.
  • A skilled player can use this to take down sniper users.

Zombie Infection

  • M4 has very high stun. It makes zombie hard to move for each shot and some players like to combine it with strong melee weapons to deal a high damage on the zombie.
  • Most of the M4 users in Zombie mods will try to attack with knife (Nata Knife is the most commonly used). It means they will get close to you after they stunned you. Use this as an advantage to infect them.
  • When using heavy type zombies, jump to lessen the damage caused by M4 users.
  • When using light type zombies, try not to jump when the user is aiming M4 at you. Like most shotguns, it will knock you far away. But you can use this as an advantage to escape from them especially if you are in low health.
  • Most of M4 users would not spend their Deadly Shot on M4 but actually, a 7 round shots on zombies with Deadly Shot can deal 1820 ~ 3640 damage to zombies.

Trivia

  • This weapon's XM1014 designation is an artifact since the shotgun was modeled during its experimental stages in the US Army. Even though it's already adopted as the "M1014", the experimental designation remains as is, and continues to do so in all installments of Counter-Strike series.
  • The railing system is more detailed in the Red variant, given that the model is a direct reskin from Counter-Strike: Condition Zero.
