The M24 is a 7.62x51mm bolt action rifle designed for soft targets.
Despite using the same ammunition and having the same stats of the DMR, this weapon is much more accurate, featuring a single zoom zero-able scope. It can hit targets dead-on at the center of the reticule with the right distance and zeroing. The scope can be adjusted with the Page Up and Page Down keys with the default mapping up to 800m in 100m increments, though it is possible to hit a target beyond that threshold using the mil-dots. It only has one level of zoom, but it's equivalent to the DMR's second level of zoom. As a downside, being a bolt action makes the fire rate suffer and the the low magazine capacity of this weapon makes the DMR the superior weapon due to its versatility.
The M24's magazine holds 5 rounds, and 4 5Rnd. M24 can be converted to one DMR Mag. and vice-versa, allowing larger quantities of ammo to be carried. In order to load the weapon you must have at least one 5Rnd. M24 ammo in your inventory.
The weapon's scope reticle can also serve as an improvised rangefinder to estimate the distance to the target.
At zoom level 2, a standing 1.8m target will be:
- 1000m: 2.00 mil-dots
- 900m: 2.22 mil-dots
- 800m: 2.50 mil-dots
- 700m: 2.86 mil-dots
- 600m: 3.33 mil-dots
- 500m: 4.00 mil-dots
- 400m: 5.00 mil-dots
- 300m: 6.67 mil-dots
- 200m: 10.00 mil-dots
