— In-game description
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam, the M14 is issued to the Assault kit. It has a 20-round magazine and a fully-automatic fire mode. It has the lowest rate of fire of the assault rifles, but is balanced by the highest damage and fastest reload time. It also has the lowest accuracy, the largest hipfire spread, and the highest recoil, limiting the user to fire in bursts at mid-long range to maintain accuracy. Its sights are very similar to those of the M1 Garand from the base game. It is comparable to the G3 in the base game, as it has high damage, low rate of fire, high but controllable recoil, and a small, 20-round magazine.
