- "Damn you, L-Brain Sidework!! First you took our MP5, and now our Glock 26! Why must you confound us so?! Wait no, I mean, what?... They're giving us the Steyr M as replacement? I mean, err... "
Overall, a very good weapon for free. Great range and accuracy, three shots to the body and two shots to the head to take down a un-upgraded Normal Zombie, and lots of ammo.
Although you may be tempted to stop using it after you get more expensive weapons, the Steyr M, which stands for Steyr-Mannlicher, can remain a usable weapon no matter what. The one thing you should be wary of is to not be too trigger-happy. Conserving ammo is always important and, due to its high firerate, you may want to do so.
After the acts of espionage revolving the Glock 26, L-Brain Sidework was forced to create a new firearm to replace the former with. Scouts for the company had to work quickly, as a weapon free of shipping was needed for survivors new to the apocalypse. They came back with a multitude of blueprints for pistols, some of them not even having good schematics. Eventually, after testing every single weapon they could make out of the blueprints, the Steyr M was chosen as the best fit and put to mass production immediately.
Some people still wonder why they couldn't just make another SMG.
- Crouching and ADS'ing with this can enable it to be used at its full range, essentially making a pocket sniper.
- Be careful though. The Steyr M's accuracy may let you down when using it at the limits of its range.
- While shooting this repeatedly won't decrease the accuracy (unlike most other guns), this will quickly deplete your ammunition. Try to conserve ammo.

- The Steyr M has one of the fastest reload times in the game, even without the attachment.
