The Calico M960 is a Submachine Gun, introduced in the 5-12-10 Supply Drop.

Overview

The M960 has a 50/50 Magazine, average damage (4-shot-kill to the chest, borderline 3-shot-kill to the back), a high rate of fire, low recoil, extremely low spread, and medium accuracy. It is believed to have one of the fastest reload times in the game, due to not needing to pull the bolt back.

The M960 is an extremely stable gun when it is fired for prolonged periods of time. It competes against the P90 for its magazine capacity. The M960 suffers at greater ranges, with sharp damage drop offs, leading to shots requiring more than 5 or 6 to kill an enemy target (for example, across the hall way of the Oil Rig map). Sights are incompatible with this gun, forcing players to shoot from the hip. Its quick reloads make it decent for running and gunning. However, no extended magazines could be attached to max out the weapon's magazine utility for balanced reasons. Attaching a suppressor to this gun will make the weapon even weaker, with already worsened damage drop offs exacerbated and thus making the player more vulnerable in gunfights. The weapon shares an almost identical firing sound to the Kriss and houses a helical magazine on top, similar to the PP-19 style Sub Machine Gun magazine. The weapon is futuristic in its sleek looks and is grey in color.

  • In game, the M960 has a large helical magazine that blocks out the gun's front parts. However, as one can see by looking at its arsenal picture, the M960 is supposed to have a very small magazine.
  • The M960, like the MP7 and other guns, has a foregrip for the player to hold on to.
  • This is the sixth gun to have the simple reload animation of just taking out the old magazine and inserting a new one.
