|— Weapon Description|
The M4A1 Chrome can only be purchased in the Capsule Shop for AP, rendering it a fairly rare weapon. It features an increase in damage, stability, and rate of fire at the cost of a little less range. It also features an integrated Holographic sight.
Generally people will drop this weapon in favour of the MK.3 or the Carpio as they boast good shot grouping even when spraying/bursting. The Chrome is a different flavor of weapon. Think of the Chrome as the Rifleman's answer to high ROF Pointman weapons. It's essentially a fusion of Galil MAR and M4A1 with High ROF and grouping similar to the stock M4A1. But in the other side, if you get mastered with the SA58 Para, the Chome is exactly the same way to use. Tapping 3-5 shots, and aim the foe's neck, and you will find this gun can easily do head-shots. Use this gun skillfully , and you will find out the Chrome may be very useful and deadly, possibly reach the top of the M4A1 series, and among the MK.3 series. The M4A1 Chrome can be modded to M4A1 Chrome 2014, which basically makes it into an Mk.4 in trade for some ROF.

M4A1 Chrome 2014 Upgrade Kit
The Chrome is a tricky gun to master, even for the best of shooters, as there are so many routes you can take with this gun. The most effective all-round ways of using it I have found are:
In CQB, sprays of 7-8 shots at neck height, drag gun down as recoil makes it rise.
In Mid-Range, side to side strafe and 3-4 shots bursts with slight down drag OR tap shoot.
In Long Range, crouch and tap shoot, aim for the head.
