The Light machine gun is a weapon in Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Machine gun. To modify, please edit the source page.

An alternative design for the squad light machine gun, this weapon is an air-cooled, belt fed, open bolt, recoil-operated machine gun with a barrel designed for quick changes in the midst of combat. Capitalizing on the lessons provided by warfare in challenging climates, it is designed for ruggedness, reliability, and ease of operation by soldiers with even limited training. The combination of these factors made it capable of providing copious amounts of firepower and an absolute terror on the battlefield.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The light machine gun is a fast-firing alternative to the minigun, consuming the rather precious .308 caliber rounds. It has a respectable per-shot damage for a heavy weapon, but where it truly shines is the almost insane rate of fire that allows it to chew through the ammunition in the drum in minutes. This does make it rather effective at dealing with less armored
