Alternate Between Shooting & Pausing
Don't just keep your finger on the trigger for the Minigun! Alternate between shooting and stopping it to stop it from overheating while in use.
Let it rip and close in
If you know that enemies are hiding behind hard targets, you can use the Minigun to destroy them as you advance so that you can immediately shoot enemy players after their cover goes down.
Use as a secondary weapon
Miniguns are not recommended for quick shot bursts. Make sure you have another weapon that you can use for shoot and run situations.
