Overview[edit | edit source]

While it is mainly seen mowing down infantry, the machine gun's incredible versatility has seen it put on 'Mechs. The machine gun's "no-heat continous-fire" ability makes it a useful asset in any MechWarrior's arsenal. Machine guns are particularly useful in quad mountings like in the Cicada. Their rapid fire makes them prime candidates for making "critical hits"

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Currently, the Machine Gun does very little damage. However, it does incredible damage to internal structural components. It has a 39% chance to deal 1 Critical Hit, 22% chance to deal 2 critical hits, and 6% chance to deal 3 critical hits. The max damage each bullet can do is roughly 3 compared to the normal 0.1 point of damage each bullet does to armor. However if used correctly the machine guns can be used to devastate even assault mechs.
