The M1 Carbine is a .357 semi-automatic rifle first introduced in the Lifeline DLC of State of Decay and it is a returning classic 9mm rifle-class weapon featured in State of Decay 2.


The M1 Carbine is based on the venerable M1 Carbine, a lightweight and reliable carbine, which was saw more as a sidearm (because of it's cartridge) than a main infantry rifle, it saw use as close as the mid-final stages of the WW2 to early stages of the Vietnam War.
