Summary Edit

A light machine gun (LMG) is a machine gun designed to be employed by an individual soldier rather than mounted to a weapon or structure. These military grade weapons can be located in or near army deployments. In general, they are quite impractical because of their weight, low accuracy (also, they cannot be specialized in) and high ammo consumption rate.

Most LMGs cannot be set to semi-automatic fire mode.
