|“||The original design for the M1000-pattern DRG-issue precision rifle goes back hundreds of years, practically unchanged. High damage, respectable fire rate...and that "Ping". A prime example of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".|
|— Item Description|
The M1000 Classic is one of the Scout's alternative primary weapons. It is a semi-automatic rifle with a long, singular barrel. The barrel and receiver are made out of metal whereas the stock and grips seem to be made of wood.
It is one of few weapons to boast an alternative firing mode. Holding down the fire button will cause the weapon to enter Focus Mode. In this state, bullets fired have perfect accuracy and deal double damage but consume two rounds out of the magazine at once. Focus Mode requires a brief charging state, indicated by the crosshair rotating. While Focus Mode is active, the screen zooms in slightly to assist with aiming. Focus Mode shots can be cancelled by reloading, swapping equipment or swinging the Pickaxe.
|Unlocked through an assignment.|
|Requires Scout 10
There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.
Overclock calculations happen after modifiers.
|M1000 Classic [Expand/Collapse]|
||+Focused Shot Hover||Your movement slows down for a few seconds while using focus mode in the air.|
|| x1.25 Clip Size
||Increase clip capacity and speed up reloads by getting rid of dead weight on the clips.|
|Active Stability System
||Focus faster and without slowing down but all that fancy tech limits how quickly you can reload.|
||A less powerful round together with a rebalancing of weight distribution, enlarged vents and a reshaped grip result in a rifle that is more controllable when hip-firing in quick succession but at the cost of pure damage output. As an added bonus you can carry more of the new ammunition.|
|Electrocuting Focus Shots
+Electrocuting Focus Shots
|Embedded capacitors in a copper core carry the electric charge from the EM coils used for focus shots and will electrocute the target at the cost of a reduced focus shot damage bonus.|
||Take the M1000'S focus mode to the extreme by supercooling the rounds before firing to improve their acceleration through the coils, but the extra coolant in the clips limits how much ammo you can bring.|

- The M1000 Classic is based on the American M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle, and includes the trademark 'ping' when ejecting spent clips
- Mission Control expresses fondness for the M1000 when unlocking it via its corresponding Weapon License Upgrade assignment. He calls it a "good choice", and it is the only weapon he doesn't express bemusement or caution with.
