- "Medium range semi-automatic shotgun. Lethal at close range."
— In-game description
The M1014 can be considered a Jack-of-all-Trades semi-automatic shotgun. With a decent tube magazine capacity, fire rate and okay damage drop off, this weapon is powerful in close-quarters situations.
However, its difficult to accurately control the recoil of the weapon due to the semi-automatic nature of the shotgun.
- The weapon is modeled with a finned 5-round magazine tube limiter (which would limit the weapon to 5+1 rounds total), but the in-game capacity is 7+1 rounds as though it had a full-length magazine tube.
- When using a non-optical attachment, the M1014 has the AVA Tactical Mod 1 rail attached, although it is incorrectly modeled as a square-ish shape rather than hexagonal like the real world counterpart.
- IQ is seen using an M1014 in her Operator video, a weapon that is neither something she can equip nor is it a part of her CTU.
