M-96 Mattock is an Assault Rifle in Mass Effect 3. They have a high fire rate, moderate to high damage, and are effective in mid-range combat.
Medium-range, semi-automatic rifle. The Mattock is a hybrid weapon with an assault rifle's low heat production and a sniper rifle's punch. Marksmen favor its increased power over that of an assault rifle to bring down hardened targets. Its lack of a full-auto setting is advertised as a feature rather than a shortcoming as it curbs a soldier's tendency to spray inaccurate fire under stress.

- Purchasable from Kassa Fabrication in Presidium Commons on Citadel. The price is 7000 Credits
M-96 Mattock - Notes
- Very accurate and high-damage assault rifle.
- Use it if you can consistently land headshots, as its low ammo capacity can make normal shots a waste.
