Light Machine Gun (LMG) Weapon Overview
Large Magazine Size
The LMG is a weapon class best known for their large magazine size. This unique trait allows players to keep their finger on the trigger for extended periods of time. Reloading this weapon takes longer than other weapon types.
Excellent Suppressive Fire Capabilities
Firing for extended periods of time allows players to pin down enemies behind cover, suppressing any of their plans to attack. Any attempt to move out of cover will only be met with the high damage these weapons deal!
Reload When Out of Danger
Since reloading this weapon takes some time, it would be best to reload this gun only when you are nearly out of bullets and when you are sure that the area is clear of enemies! No one wants to be caught in the middle of reloading their LMG!
Can Be Used For Anti-Air Purposes
LMGs are also able to deal substantial damage. Pairing this with their large magazine size, players are also able to use these weapons to shoot down killstreaks such as the UAV, or even choppers!
