|— Weapon Description|
The M4A1 BumbleBee is an "improved" version of the M4A1 featuring an increase in damage and range. It features a yellow paint job and the motif of a bee.
One of the debates surrounding the BumbleBee is whether or not it truly is an "upgrade" compared to an modded M4A1 (or at least when compared to the M4A1 Mk3). It sports higher damage, (scoped) accuracy, and range than its predecessor, but the noticable drop in RoF actually makes it kill less quickly in close to medium ranges. The Bumblebee is also known to be alot harder than its predecessor, for its crosshair jumps more randomly than the Mk.2. However, for those who tend to prefer mid-long range combat shouldn't disregard the BumbleBee's high range; It sports superior accuracy when looking down the sight which some say is 100% accurate when crouched. Many people turn their heads away from this gun because it is so much like the Mk.2, thinking that the Mk.2 is not a good gun. However, if bursted properly with just a little bit of training, this gun can become one's worst nightmare.
It is less popular than its brother the M4A1 Carpio, due to the difference in playstyle (long range vs close-mid range)

The BumbleBee is not a weapon to be mistaken as useless. It has a slight learning curve, but do not be fooled, as once the curve is learned, this gun is unstoppable. Try aiming for the neck/upper chest of your enemies and shoot in burst of 4-5 bullets when at mid to long ranges. At short ranges, aim straight for the head and spray away, you will usually get a 1 hit kill.
