When a Chat Trooper heads into battle, they are armed with their signature M-30 rifle.
The M-30 is a good front line service rifle. The gun is cheap and reliable most of the time, though if mud gets into the open bolt, it will jam. While different models have been used by the both the Chat Armed Forces and Chat Nation for over 25 years, this is the most recent model to be given to them. During the events of the Chat Schism, this rifle also found its hands in members of the Republic Sentinel , along with other sections of the New Galactic Republic armed forces.
