Arme Automatique Transformable Modèle 1952

Arme Automatique Transformable Modèle 1952
Machine Gun ★★ Enhancement fodder

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

Sumitomo Type 62 GPMG

Sumitomo Type 62 GPMG
Machine Gun ★★★ Trophy Raifu

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.

Benelli M1014 / M4 Super 90

Benelli M1014 / M4 Super 90
Shotgun ★★★★ Okay-ish

A Heavy Cruiser from Kantai collection that got lost somewhere.

Not a superlative shotgun, but has a decent aura for 2SG formations where she wants to be in the 3 position, because 20% firepower is nice if you absolutely need a second shotgun and have no room for an HG. Her skill would be better if it didn't have such a godawful startup time. Like SPAS, her armour is not exceptional.

Franchi SPAS-12

Franchi SPAS-12
Shotgun ★★★★ Good

The Queen of Gluttons, and reason you lock up your ration storage. If you get -MRE tiles on random nodes, don't believe the fake news, its just a cover for her breaking into your food stores. No seriously, all her damned lines are related to food, EVEN HER OATH LINE.

Actually has a really nice skill but has fairly average stats. Her skill doesn't work with slugs, only further highlighting how shit slugs are. Her defenses are actually not as good as some of the others, but she has good offensive stats (for a shotgun). Basically a direct upgrade to Type-97 and basically beats her out in most ways aside from tile buff shape.

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.

Winchester Model 1887 Shotgun

Winchester Model 1887 Shotgun
Shotgun ★★★★★ Usable

Aka M1887. She's a shotgun, so she will do shotgun things shotgun-y (read: facetank with her armour), but is not particularly impressive at it. Her stats are okay (but worse than Elphelt's), her tile buffs are the weakest of all 5* shotties (and most 4*!)… and her skill is downright useless, because it has a ridiculously long 15 second cooldown, yet its strength depends on the amount of links still alive at that point (which won't be many).

As far as free SGs are concerned, a minor upgrade over 97S if you need armour over buff tiles.

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

AEK-999 Barsuk

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.

Neostead NS2000

Neostead NS2000
Shotgun ★★★ Usable

Usable I guess? Really, one of the lower end shotguns, but she can still tank. Just not a first choice when you now have actual choice in shotgun variety. Doesn't do anything badly, but doesn't really excel either. Does have decent offtank tiles though, if you want to run 2SG.

KS-23

KS-23
Shotgun ★★★ Usable

AKA, SHARK-CHAN. Shitty aura shape, workable buff. Has surprisingly high HP for a 3 star shotty, and surprisingly ok damage, otherwise average tanking ability. With the release of better SGs, you'll want better if you can, but all shotguns are at least usable if you lack anything better.

TsKIB RMB-93

TsKIB RMB-93
Shotgun ★★★ Usable

A really shitty aura, average armor for a shotty. Prolly the worst shotgun currently available on EN except shotguns are wanted for their tanking ability or else youd have picked literally anything else. With the release of SAT8 & company, she's even less useful, but hey, if you dont have anything else, she'll still do.

Ithaca M37 Featherlight

Ithaca M37 Featherlight
Shotgun ★★★★ Good

Called "The Northern Hemispheres" for fairly obvious reasons. Somehow, someone decided "Featherlight" clearly means "biggest tits on a t-doll possible." Her skill lets her do a bit of damage except you dont care about that sort of thing on a shotgun and its not like the skill has time to trigger on a typical fight (most SGs dont get to use their skills anyway). Still, well... she's a shotgun with 22 base armour. This puts her ahead of the lower end shotties like supershorty.

Hawk Industries Type-97

Hawk Industries Type-97
Shotgun ★★★★ Usable

CAPTAIN CHINNNAAAAA! Surprisingly good for a free unit. Has the lowest armor among the shotguns (tied with Super Shorty), but she will get you started considering how easy it is to get her. Aura optimized for 1SG/1HG/3MG setups, and works well with Mk23 and M2HB (which are both given for free to new players too). Has a very tiny 3-shot magazine compared to the usual 4 most SGs get which limits her firepower somewhat, but her skill offsets this a bit (not that shotguns get to use their skills besides SAT8). A flawed unit and not a first pick for many lineups, but most SGs are interchangeable as far as front-row tanks go anyway, even if she's not as good at it as the other ones you'll get eventually. Her main merits are a decent aura shape and being free.

Mauser C96
Handgun ★★★ Core fodder

Some may claim her skill is useful (It pretends to be), except it applies after the penalty (and really, its' multiplication and isn't on the same modifier so its autoshit either way), so 100% - 90% = 10% x 2 = 20%! Congratulations, you've wasted 600 basic data, 1020 intermediate data, and 500 advanced data for less benefit than a 2* PEQ.

United States Machine Gun, Caliber 7.62 mm, M60, Garbage
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.
