The stat of the M14 in Free Fire

The M14 gun in Free Fire is a semi-auto sniper rifle. A Semi-auto sniper rifle is kind of a hybrid between an Assault Rifle and a Sniper Rifle. It has high damage, a long effective range, a below-average rate of fire, a small magazine, and good accuracy.

The M14 is useable in all kinds of fights from short range or long range but it is the most effective in mid to long-range combats. Unlike sniper rifles such as Kar98 or AWM, you can't one-shot the enemy in the head.

However, you can shot many bullets quickly without having to stop. This is really useful when the enemies are running because it is hard for a Kar98 or AWM to kill the enemy in this case.

The M14 can be equipped with a Silencer, Muzzle, Foregrip, Magazine, Scope. These attachments can help the weapon to be more stable and steady.

Compared to other semi-auto sniper rifles,  the M14 gun in Free Fire damage is quite average, if it is not low. But the weapon has a better Rate of Fire than most.

2. M14 Gun In Free Fire Tips

Here, we will offer you some useful tips so you can use the M14 gun in Free Fire more effectively.

  • Since the M14 is only good in mid to long-range combats. You need to pair it with another close-range weapon. The best choice here would be the M1887 shotgun or the MP40 SMG. Both of these are the best option for close-range combats. You can also use an AR such as SCAR or XM8.
  • When you are playing the sniper game, one of the most important factors is your location. You would prefer to be in a high location where it is hard for enemies to rush. By using the Launchpad around Bermuda and the Grappling Hook in Kalahari, you will be able to reach unimaginable places to snipe people below.

  • If you spot an enemy who thinks they are safe and standing still, aim carefully and prepare to take them down before they can realize and run into covers. It is best to go for headshots first.
  • The most useful character for a Sniper is Laura and Moco. Laura will increase your accuracy by a significant amount while Moco allows you to track the enemy's location after your first hit.

Laura is a great character to use with the M14
  • The M14 is an overall strong long-range weapon but you overall should avoid fighting against people who are using a bolt-action sniper rifle. It would take you a few shots to take them down while they only need to hit you one shot in the head.

3. Best M14 gun in Free Fire skin

Weapon skins have been a very important part of Free Fire ever since they decide the release weapon skins that can buff the stats of weapons. The M14 is not an exception. With the right weapon skins, you will be able to maximize the potential of the M14. Here, we will introduce to you the best 3 skins for the M14 gun in Free Fire.

M14 Lively Beast skin

The M14 Lively Beast skin compensates for the weakness of the M14 by giving it more Rate of Fire so you can finish enemies quicker. The magazine size of the weapon will be reduced by a little as the trade-off but it hardly matters.

M14 Winterlands skin

The M14 Winterlands skin also gives a double buff to the M14 just like the M14 Lively Beast skin but it reduces the Accuracy of the weapon instead. This is also not a problem at all since you will be using a big scope with this weapon.

M14 Skyline Horizon skin

The M14 Skyline Horizon skin gives the weapon a double buff in, allowing you to finish your target in fewer shots. This is definitely a great buff, but I would still prefer to have more Rate of Fire on this weapon. Once again, the Accuracy reduction of this skin doesn't matter at all.
