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.

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.

Machine Gun ★★ Enhancement fodder

Aka AAT-52. Between an useless skill and even more useless buff tiles not worth using under any circumstances.

Aka 62 Shiki if you're a fucking weeb.

Awful stats, worse skill, and her tiles are nothing impressive either – their shape is good, but a measly 8% armour buff isn't worth bothering with.

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.

Machine Gun ★★ Enhancement fodder

Aka FG42; worse than LWMMG, so kinda useless unless you're a strict no-duper and really need one more MG… in which case she's still better than MG4 on her first mag.

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. On the other hand she eventually gets a unique that makes her better than MG4, which is... not saying much.

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.

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.

Machine Gun ★★★ Trophy Raifu

....She's cute.... And she has a red beret?

Those are literally the only things that she has going for her. Low firepower makes her skill eh, not that it matters because she takes too long to startup her skill to begin with. For such a mediocre performance, she costs every bit as much as a better MG to field. As for practical matters, she has no merits on the battlefield whatsoever and the only reason she isn't listed as core fodder is because she's a login bonus that you can't farm for yet.

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.

With MG34, this was Germany's primary machine gun for WW2. You may also note that they lost that war.

Their best use is they give parts when disassembled. Otherwise, completely worthless wastes of ammo and resources.

United States Light Machine Gun, 5.56 mm, M249
Machine Gun ★★★ Trophy Raifu

Also known as the FN Minimi or M249SAW. Stats are mediocre and her skill frankly sucks. Only comes as a drop from 5-6 or 5-4E, so more of a trophy for completionists who collect rarer t-dolls than an actually good unit.
