Perhaps the most well-recognized weapon in the pre-War U.S. Military arsenal, the M199 earned its nickname "The Backtalker" from the unusual report the firing mechanism makes as it ejects a spent shell. Firing standard 5.56mm rounds, the M199 was the official infantry weapon of the U.S. Army and part of the M Series of weapons.

AppearancesEdit

The M199 doesn't technically appear in any game, and is mentioned in the Museum of Technology in Fallout 3. In the game itself, the default assault rifle model is the R91 assault rifle, a weapon used by the National Guard.

InconsistencyEdit

The description of the R91 assault rifle in a Citadel terminal states that the M series was discontinued in favor of the R series in the early 21st century, which contradicts the information in the Museum of Technology about the M199 still being the official U.S. Army weapon (stated in present tense). It is a possibility that the museum's exhibit was in place before the military made the decision.
