Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

"Automatic assault rifle featuring a short stroke piston system that keeps the fire rate high and the recoil low."
— Description

The M13 appears in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and is manufactured by Tempus Armament.

Campaign

The M13 is used by the SAS during the Campaign. In "Clean House" and the start of "The Wolf's Den (level)", a semi-automatic only version is the player's starting weapon.

Multiplayer

The M13 is a fully-automatic assault rifle unlocked at rank 39. It comes with low damage for an assault rifle (and by most other standards). It requires a minimum of 5 shots to kill out to 30 meters, though this can be lowered to 4 or even 3 shots with headshots. Past this distance it will require 6 shots. Fortunately, the M13 comes with a lofty fire rate of 891 RPM. This is faster than most other fully-automatic assault rifles, LMGs, and SMGs. Time-to-kill is not particularly fast due to needing several shots to kill, but the weapon’s rate of fire makes it more forgiving when missing a couple of shots.

The M13 also features generally favorable handling for an assault rifle. Move speed is fair, ADS speed is among the fastest in the class, and hipfire spread is average yet workable thanks to the high rate of fire. The gun also comes with a standard 30 round magazine, but the high rate of fire and low damage mean that this ammo will be depleted rapidly. The M13 also has fairly controllable recoil. Though the gun will drift upwards due to the high fire rate, recoil under fully-automatic fire is predictable out to midrange. Overall, the weapon has a host of traits that make it pretty flexible both up close and out to medium distances. It is one of the nimbler assault rifles, but its time-to-kill is can be lacking if the player does not achieve a headshot.

It also comes with an interesting variety of attachments to tailor the gun to a variety of situations. The Tempus Mini barrel will speed up ADS and move speed but slightly hamper long range performance. The M13 will generally handle faster like an SMG. This can be combined with the M13 Skeleton Stock for a mobile ADS-centric build or No Stock and Stippled Grip Tape for maximum mobility in tight spaces. In contrast, the Tempus Marksman will noticeably boost damage range and reduce recoil for stronger performance far away. The Tempus Cyclone is an interesting choice as it provides an integrated suppressor that increases bullet velocity with only a minor ADS speed penalty. There’s also the usual variety of muzzles, optics, and underbarrel attachments for the assault rifle class.

Adding an extended magazine is a great way to satiate the M13’s voracious appetite for ammunition. Reloads will be less frequent and the gun will have more reserve ammo, which is essential for prolonged streaks. However, the M13 also has a unique magazine altering attachment: .300 Blackout 30-Round Mags. This attachment will grant 25% extra range and remove both bullet tracers and the skulls that appear above killed enemies. These benefits are useful for more stealthy playstyles, especially for flanking opponents. Combining this with a suppressor or the Tempus Cyclone barrel will make for a deadly and silent build that can harass enemies while avoiding detection.

Warzone

In Warzone, the M13 is one of the slowest killing assault rifles due to its low damage. The M13 will take 11 shots to down a fully-plated enemy up to 34 meters and 13 shots past this distance, with its TTK ranging from 673ms to 855ms. However, the M13 is one of the most forgiving assault rifles in the Modern Warfare arsenal, sporting a relatively fast fire rate of 891 RPM and considerably lower recoil than other assault rifles. Because of its relatively slower TTK compared to other assault rifles, being able to track and lead shots accurately is essential in making the most out of the M13.

As with most other assault rifles in Warzone, a larger magazine size coupled with recoil reducing attachments is highly recommended in order to increase the killing potential of the M13. The Tempus Marksman barrel is considered to be one of the most essential attachments for the M13, increasing its range, recoil control, and bullet velocity while having a minimal impact on its ADS and movement speeds. The Monolithic Suppressor is also crucial, as it also increases range and bullet velocity as well as keeping the user hidden from the radar. Due to its low damage, the 60 Round Mags is necessary to be able to deal with multiple opponents at once. The Commando Foregrip, while slightly reducing movement speed, increases recoil control with no penalty to ADS speed. While optics are generally up to user preference, the VLK 3.0x Optic is recommended, as it allows the user to deal with opponents at range while also adding a slight recoil control benefit.

Overall, the M13 is one of the more underperforming weapons in Warzone. Although it is one of the more accurate assault rifles in the game, its slower killing potential can prove to be a great hinderance, especially at range. A fully-kitted M13 may be able to hold its own against ground loot weapons, but it struggles to keep up with most other similarly kitted assault rifles.
