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.


There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.

  • 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 does not express bemusement or caution with.
