Alma Armas

Alma Armas
Machine Gun Special Second Volley MG, Surprisingly Good

And everyone's favourite "Security Consultant" apparently learned from the Barrack Obama school of physical security. "When in doubt, send drones to fuck it up."

As far as MGs go, it works alright. Needs her special equipment, but she has decent stats and ok buffs, especially when you consider how high her stats actually are (95 firepower with her gear, before any other modifiers) compared to other MGs (the highest base is only 102). She also has 31 base hit, which means like PKP she can use mostly critscopes during the day and potentially gives her surprisingly competitive (actual winner depends on fairies, support, and enemy targets) DPS compared to even M2HB or PK during day battles.

IWI NEGEV

IWI NEGEV
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Niche uses

The cursed MG that eats your ammo and calls you a Nazi for having pathetic logistics.

+50% DMG per reload that lasts for 25 seconds.Yes, they stack. Pretty much the best MG on EN for a long fight, but not great for short fights. With the arrival of enemies like Garm and Judge, well, she makes fight like that significantly simpler.

Heckler & Koch MG4

Heckler & Koch MG4
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Yeah as if

The "IM READY!" but Never ready meme girl and winner of PD Negev's "Worst T-doll" competition.

Like the real thing, you might as well seek better. She suffers heavily from a skill that extends her mag and gives minimal damage boost trying to shoot for great endurance, as MGs are basically not oriented to that sort of style at all, because you want MGs to overwhelm with sheer firepower, and she does anything but.

Basically she is outperformed by even 2 star MGs.

Heckler & Koch MG5

Heckler & Koch MG5
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Recommended

Has the skill that makes M2HB so good (but with better numbers!), but with a little less attack in exchange for a non-garbage Accuracy score and having 16 max rounds (instead of 15) with a maxed gold ammo box, making her really good. Probably the best general purpose MG right now.

PKP Pecheneg Light Machine Gun

PKP Pecheneg Light Machine Gun
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Recommended

Along with MG5, the last word on general use MGs until digimind evolution. Chance to fire an extra shot with every shot, and that has extra damage and can crit (it's not an autocrit, but can crit, see notes). At lvl10, it's actually very steady. Absolutely mandatory for 100% of teams that want to make it to the absolute top ranks of datasim.

NORINCO QJY-88 (Type-88 Machine Gun)

NORINCO QJY-88 (Type-88 Machine Gun)
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Decent Multi-Volley MG

Because we need more things named Type-88 clearly.

Has both active and passive bits to their skill. Her active mode is basically an FP up - you've seen this before. Her passive mode is based on moving around. By default, she's in LMG mode and fires from the shoulder, and has increased movespeed. Her accuracy however, suffers a debuff while in LMG mode (although thankfully her acc stat isnt awful). Once she sits still for 6 seconds though, she sets up her bipod and goes into HMG mode, which gives her an acc BUFF and extends her belt by 2 shots. She switches back to LMG mode if made to move.

Equivalent to Alma. Alma will win early volleys (first 2 mags) but Type-88 will deal more for extended (3+ belts) fights. Both make MG4 cry.

HK21

HK21
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Yet another Armor Buffer

She used to be useful because she had more true RoF than other MGs (9 frames vs 10) and was 1 of the faster reload cancels (with BAR). That was then.

Now type-88 MG and a certain titty hacker exist and her quirks dont apply anymore, and guess which EN got first.

Her skill is interesting but not exceptionally helpful. Also it actually slows down her movespeed, making anything involving walking take longer.

Basically, obsolescent before she was even released, just like the real gun. You can raise her if you want, though the big reason to raise her was she was an advantage doll in theatre mode 3 times in a row rather than combat effectiveness.

Machine Gun ★★★★ Core fodder

Funny to look at if she has her unique equip, but worse than LWMMG with or without it.

Machine Gun ★★★★ Usable, gets better

The famous Browning Automatic Rifle. BAR-chan, Auntie, etc. The initial reward for starting the game early. When her Digimind Evolution comes, she becomes mandatory for ranking in datafarm. Until then, kinda sadly, not as good. However, she will suffice in a pinch compared to other MGs due to her damage buff being unconditional (and better than M60's by default...). Of note, DON'T BOTHER WITH HER TITAN CHIP. it's super old content from an age long past and is strictly inferior to the new basic ammo boxes. Her rating will be significantly upgraded once digimind evolution is in.

Machine Gun ★★★★ Core fodder

At day, she's worse than LWMMG. At night, she worse than LWMMG on her first magazine, which is all you usually care about on an MG.

In protracted fights that need exactly two magazines, at night, against armoured enemies, she can shine, if her skill is maxed out… we'll let you know if such a fight will ever happen.

PK Light Machine Gun

PK Light Machine Gun
Machine Gun ★★★★ Recommended

Has the same skill as M2HB (but with slightly better numbers) on a 4 star platform and farmable (in theory) from 0-2. Has a less shitty acc stat (but not by by much so you'll still want a +ACC item) but more importantly she has a 11 base ammo, that means you get 16 max shots to proc that skill with instead of 15. Pretty much the 4 star MG you'll want as of now. Also, the gun is Gunjesus Approved.

FN Herstal Mk48 Maximi

FN Herstal Mk48 Maximi
Machine Gun ★★★★ Good

Pretty much a 4 star LWMMG. Has Hunting Impulse, which is basically the 2nd best non-unique MG skill. Has slightly lower firepower than LWMMG, but has 1 more shot in the mag to make up for it.

AEK-999 Barsuk

Machine Gun ★★★★ Core fodder

If your name is deathalice, she is the best and most wonderful t-doll ever. Especially with her bike riding skin.

If you are similar to deathalice, she is the best and most wonderful t-doll ever. Especially with her bike riding skin.

If you are worried about performance, she is godawful and somehow took one of the better MG skills (Hunting Impulse) and produced a shittier version with an 8s startup (missing the point of having HI) that only works well at night.

CETME Ameli

CETME Ameli
Machine Gun ★★★★ Core fodder

A Christmas tree! Will be her primary job at your base probably. Suffers from the curse of an MG that lacks a passive, a first burst-active like hunting impulse, or usefulness during the day. She has a unique that makes her better than MG4, which is... not saying much. Unfortunately that unique is also no longer available.

Type 80 GPMG

Type 80 GPMG
Machine Gun ★★★★ Usable

The PLA didn't want to have her, and neither should you.

First magazine performance is worse than LWMMG's, second magazine performance is roughly on par with BAR and the big 4 – except BAR later gets a mod3 and the big 4 are useful on their first mag, too. If you absolutely must, she'll work about as well as BAR right now.
