The Colt M4 is an assault rifle in Dead Trigger.



The Colt M4 was the starting weapon the Hero used, and was also the only weapon the player lost. When the Hero lost the Colt, he ran straight into the Gun Shop, where he can purchase the Colt 1911, Scorpion, and re-obtain the Colt M4. The Colt M4 itself handles well, and is initially capable of killing zombies with a few rounds.

The Colt M4 has a front grip, which cannot be removed, though it helps reduce recoil and assists in accuracy. Along with a functional iron sight, a Holographic Sight, both assets help with increasing accuracy. It is an automatic assault rifle, though it takes about three bullets to kill, which, considering its high fire rate, is easy to accomplish and is very fast for the assault rifle category.

It is best used as a primary weapon, considering its strengths, and once fully upgraded, can hold a larger clip, and can deal more damage amongst other things. The M4 has low recoil, which takes a second to adjust to when looking through the sights.

In a nutshell, the Colt M4 is an all-rounder weapon, and all players are capable of using it.


The Colt M4 has three tiers to upgrade to. With the initial purchase, and upgrades, this gun will cost a grand total of Shop icon 2220.

  • This was the only weapon that could be lost.
