A battlefield is a dangerous place. Bullets are flying everywhere, armored vehicles trying to ruin your day and a whole host of soldiers trying to separate you from your life. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is no exception to this rule. You’ll find that you’re continuously getting shot at, and the only way you’re going to survive is by having the best weapons in your loadout.
Unfortunately, they did not make the Light Machine Gun for the high octane world of Call of Duty multiplayer. It’s quite cumbersome, which means your mobility is going to be somewhat limited. They do have their uses, though. If you find yourself in a squad battle, then they’re perfect for laying down suppressing fire. You can give your team a better chance to advance, or for just opening up a whole can of whup-ass on any group of players unfortunate enough to walk into your sights.
This guide looks at the much beleaguered LMS and decides which one is the best one for you.
The PKM kicks like a mule that’s just had a red hot poker jammed into its private parts. This effect means that the recoil on it makes it very difficult to use unless you’re willing to put the time into figuring it out. It also doesn’t lay down a wall of bullets, more like a cloud, as it has a pretty slow fire rate, but it does inflict a massive amount of damage on anything that you do manage to hit. So there is that.
The M91 packs a lot of ammo in its clip, so you’ll spend a lot less time reloading than you would with the other two in this guide. It also fires an incredible amount of bullets in a short space of time, and these will cause a hell of a lot of pain to anyone dumb enough to get in your way. On the downside, however, is the fact that it takes forever to lock onto anyone, and it will cut back and forth from side to side so severely that you’re more than likely going to hit a few walls before the person that you’re aiming at.
The MG34 may look older than your granma without her make-up on, but looks can be very deceiving. This LMG has all the right spots nailed down with a brilliant rate of fire, massive damage, as well as hardly any recoil. It will also punch its way through nearly anything your enemies may choose to hide behind, meaning there is no escape from this weapon of death.
When is an LMG not an LMG? When it’s the SA87, of course. This weapon has more in common with an assault rifle than it does with an LMG, which means it’s light and agile. It also carries a ton of bullets in a clip and causes a ton of serious death to anyone in its patch. The SA87 is the ultimate LMG and should always be in your loadout, no matter what.
