Name Class Rarity Useful? Notes

MG4 Mod

MG4 Mod
Machine Gun ★★★★★★ Useful for Ranking at Mod3, Meh at 1 and 2

While still a little sad, the Mod brings her up to a usable level, and gives her a role as a specialist in the mass warfare Mica likes throwing at people now. This comes in handy in some ranking maps where you finally meet 400+ armor enemies. You still won't use her in general content though (although let's be fair, most MGs suffer from that too)

Her ability to reduce enemy Firepower ONLY comes when equipped with SLAP rounds, which she only gets at Mod 3. Before then, meh. A major thing is that the damage reduction is at the very end of the enemy's damage calculation (because reasons) instead of the beginning, so it has more of an effect on low FP enemies than high FP ones.

Note that the bounce effect is buggy as hell, especially when the enemy dies.

MG338

Machine Gun ★★★★★ Shoots Until she's #1

Another Dangerdrop daughter, except not as cute as M200.

She has two big things going for her: 1. She keeps firing until she's top of the damage list (fuckin' tryhard). 2. She will shoot the enemy with the highest FP.

So if you pair her with Kord who does bigdick burst damage, she will keep firing for a while.

Type-80 MG Mod

Type-80 MG Mod
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Usable, but not a priority

Capped out, her FP stat isnt bad for an MG, and her cooldown time was MASSIVELY cut down (12s instead of 18) making her way better in long fights, she just doesn't have the raw performance of a sheer damage MG compared to someone like Lewis. The passive is potentially useful and she's an alright supporter, but you're not going to be needing her all that much. YMMV.

RPK-203

Machine Gun ★★★★★ An actually excellent multipurpose MG

Between her two modes AND a passive that helps keep shotguns alive, I don't think there's much more to say other than "she's great, you will probably find a use for her."

Machine Gun ★★★★ Another Entry to the "First Belt or Die" Club

Comparable to the Browning Potato Digger. There must be something about early model machine guns. Her skill gives her an extra long belt that activates three seconds in, and unlike Potato Digger, who sacrifices accuracy and gains firepower, she instead sacrifices reload time while gaining accuracy. While the extra reload time is a pain, she does buff other dolls while reloading instead of being useless. The accuracy boost is nice, but not a game-changer. It may help vs. enemies with a moderate amount of evasion though, given typical MG accuracy is kind of mediocre.

Yurine

Yurine
Machine Gun Special Better than nothing, but if you have better MGs, use those

Suffers from not only being an MG, but an inconsistent one due to her passive. Her stats are alright, but her passive skill is unreliable, not that it matters much since it only activates on reload. The active suffers from the problem of activating slowly enough that you'd expect MGs to have already killed most of what you'd want to stun anyway.

RPK-16

RPK-16
Machine Gun ★★★★★ An MG without the main downside (But has a bunch of new ones)

The mightiest Alpaca to ever wield a machine gun. Don't ask. I don't want to have to explain KR server memes.

Ok, she seems amazing. An MG that never runs out of ammo because they act like an AR while reloading. This is flat out amazing if you need an MG shooting at stuff long-term. She doesn't have great burst compared to the other MGs, but she does extremely well for very long term sustain, which...has annoyingly been coming up more and more lately.

Given the skill, one might be tempted to treat her like a normal AR with hilarious early burst damage, but you'd be dumb to do so, because she doesn't get buffs from SMGs and other sources that buff ARs. Also her crit rate is the usual garbage 5% MGs usually get instead of the much better AR rates, and she can't equip PEQs.

That said, she can be a fun mix if you, say, happen to need AR formations to punch through armour (because she can use the absolutely bonkers MG unique ammo types)

CAR

CAR
Machine Gun ★★★ Our writers didn't care, so neither should you

There might not be anything to say about CAR. But there is definitely something to say about the Mercedes Benz E-Class Sedan. The most intelligent E-Class family of all time welcomes a powerful new member to the dynasty. The E400 Sedan model arrives this year, boasting a 3.0L V6 biturbo engine producing 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque — the same powertrain that currently drives its E400 Coupe, Cabriolet and 4MATIC Wagon cousins. Paired with the 9-G-TRONIC 9-Speed automatic transmission and DYNAMIC SELECT, it promises a bracingly smooth way to experience uncommon luxury. Naturally, the 2018 E400 Sedan continues the tradition of E-Class brilliance. Harmonizing advanced automotive intelligence with awe-inspiring interior design, its first-class furnished cabin puts our advanced vehicle systems right at your fingertips — even as its world-class innovations continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in the world of automotive intelligence. "Car-to-X" Communication enables the E-Class to exchange information with similarly equipped vehicles — effectively allowing it to "see" around corners and through obstacles to detect potential hazards. Driver Assistance Systems — including Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®, Active Steering Assist and Active Lane Change Assist — feature intelligent cruise control: They help keep you between the lines, and can even help you shift between them. Inside, the E-Class cabin provides an environment of pure comfort and responsive technology. Flowing lines and vibrant screens provide a striking visual display, while touch controls, aromatherapy and tailored seats indulge all of your senses at once. It's a vehicle that demands to be driven, and more than lives up to the dream. Look for the E400 4MATIC Sedan at your Mercedes-Benz dealership this winter, with an MSRP of $58,900.

Machine Gun ★★★★★ Useful Support MG

Quite useful, but not great on her own. Her own DPS isn't especially impressive for an MG, but she can give a decent amount of extra ammo to other MGs, which can be worth it or not depending on who you pair her with, in addition to giving shotguns extra armor.

General Dynamics LWMMG Mod

General Dynamics LWMMG Mod
Machine Gun ★★★★ She's a better LWMMG, but now with more utility.

She actually gets some fairly hefty stat increases in her mod, with Mod 2 hitting as much FP as M2HB. The issues that 2 stars normally face (low skill values compared to higher ones, etc.) are pretty solved thanks to being upgraded to a 4 star, and it also gives her extra base ammo which helps out a lot. Overall a cheap mod to get, and honestly you get a fair bit of value off even just Mod 1.

She's pretty much an all-rounder MG, and with the Mod 2 skill, technically you're not limited to just SGs, but uh... the shield values are so low otherwise that it only really helps armored things, though I guess some people might find a use for that anyway. MATH BIT: Her Special Equip actually isn't awful, but tbh you're better off with an EOTech in most cases.

Her original form can be found here.

M1895 CB (Potato Digger)

M1895 CB (Potato Digger)
Machine Gun ★★★★ Tryhard's best friend

With gear, she effectively has a 45 round mag, although shots after her "normal" ammo capacity decrease her acc while upping her FP. This may be good or bad depending on what you're shooting, but she's perfect for low or 0 def enemies that you normally throw MGs at. If you can't figure a use for this, you're retarded.

A quirk though is if she moves after beginning to go into her reserve ammo, her gun will be considered "empty" and she will need to reload.

Kord

Kord
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Probably will be a primary for many tryhards

She has extremely high firepower that gets reduced by her skill, with the lowest accuracy of any 5 star MG, and a mere 9 round base capacity. What you get in exchange for this is an amazing two-part skill that provides piercing without any stupid strings or conditions to start. Yes, her AP values drop, yes her FP is reduced by the skill, but this won't matter in most contexts where you'd actually want her. You start the fight with piercing and have the option to go into a single target mode that ups her acc and firepower.

Now, her stats in single target mode don't seem exceptional, but they're more than enough for general work to get her to the battles where she would be good (assuming there are any for that map, this is still on you to get her to those), and also she has the benefit of it working from the get-go without any timing issues.

Like anything with piercing you need to position her properly, or else you waste everything. This is super important because piercing is basically the entire reason you use her to begin with, so make sure you look at what formations the enemy actually has first and position her based on that. Seriously. if you're tryhard enough to use her but not tryhard enough to figure out your enemy? You're probably retarded. Don't be that guy.

Basically you want her shooting through or across enemies, such that you get as many hitbox contacts as possible.

Machine Gun Special Extremely accurate to the anime and manga (which is not a good thing)

Props for accuracy. She spends the animoo's story just living in the dorms and only coming out for tests or really weird situations where they cant spare bodies, and she's basically the same in the game - she'll be in your dorms a whole lot. She also has three unique items that affect her passive but otherwise all do the exact same thing. She isn't completely useless, but there's not much reason to pick her over other MGs that don't have finnicky mechanics, because you frankly will not need that many MGs anymore.

Machine Gun ★★★ Free Cores \o/

A useless login reward doll? More likely than you'd think!

Terrible skill, meh tiles, worse stats, why bother?

Lewis Gun

Lewis Gun
Machine Gun ★★★★★ Whenever you need armour buffs and/or second mag performance

A gun so good Crozier doesn't want you to know about her! In-game and in real life, a straight upgrade from Chauchat.

Tiles like Negev and a skill that works somewhat similarly with better uptime make her useful in the same circumstances she is, and they work well together if you need ALL the armour stacking.

…Also the replacement cinnamon roll now that M4 turned full edgelord.
