M14 is a Cold War era automatic battle rifle available in CrossFire.
M14 was designed based on M1 Garand, a semi-automatic rifle used by the US Troops during World War II. M14 was put into US Armed Forces service from 1960s to 1970s before it was replaced with M16. It's the predecessor of the M14 EBR and they share almost the same drawing/reloading animation.
M14 is a powerful battle rifle with good accuracy and rate of fire, but with higher recoil and slower reloading time than its successor, M14 EBR. However, M14 has a quicker drawing time.
- Quick drawing time.
- Rate of fire above average.
- Highly sharp accuracy.
- Damage a bit beyond moderate.
- High penetration.
- High recoil if fired rapidly. Decrease your firing speed if it starts to interrupt the stability of your crosshair while aiming at enemies.
- Higher recoil if fired while doing quick strafing. If you have to strafe with M14 in order to dodge enemy's bullets while you firing at him, try to keep the crosshair aimed at your enemy while you move and fire the M14 in a likely Semi-Automatic way.

- Both CF Russia and CF Indonesia describe that this gun is capable to carry 20 rounds, despite it actually carries 30 rounds in-game. The magazine designed in-game for M14 are also in fact 20-round box magazine. However, the description is actually correct, since M14 in real life is a battle rifle which carries 20 rounds of 7.62x51mm ammo.
- Both the M14 & M14 EBR in real life deal way more damage than AK47, since both are chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, while the AK-47 carries 7.62x39mm round instead. The M14 should be in-fact more similar to the G3A3 battle rifle in performance.
- The actual recoil of M14 should be heavy in the real life. Therefore, soldiers often use the rifle in Semi-Auto mode instead. But in the game, the recoil is slightly lighter (only a bit higher than its successor), probably for balancing reason since the rifle gives less damage than it should do in reality.
- Currently, M14 is no longer used as a battle rifle. Instead, this rifle is now mostly used as a designated marksman rifle. It is also used as a ceremonial weapon by the US Military. This gun is also one of the most favorite firearms for some firearm collectors who focus on historical guns.
- Like most of Rifles, M14 has only 2 spare magazines (30/60) in CF Vietnam & some other CF versions.
