Name Class Rarity Useful? Notes

ZB-26

ZB-26
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.

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.

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 ★★★★★ 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.

Heckler & Koch HK23
Machine Gun ★★★ She shares a skill with MG4, what do you think?

Yet another poor doll whose only notable trait is "lewd art." So forgotten that the most common reason she comes up is "mistaken for HK21."

Pretty much useless aside from her tilebuff, except even that is questionable since other MGs can fill that role. There's simply not much to say about her besides that not even most HK fanboys care about her very much.

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.

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 ★★★ 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.

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.

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.

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.

Machine Gun ★★★ Good

She's basically LWMMG, except a 3 star and slightly more annoying to build up. She's like seriously, not even a performance benefit. Their stats are almost identical and they have the same number of shots so you... might as well just raise LWMMG, but LWMMG gets a mod later. But well, LWMMG is good so she kinda is too I guess. If youre a noduper she's another usable MG for you, since there's a shortage of those.

Machine Gun ★★★★ Usable, gets better

The famous Browning Automatic Rifle. BAR-chan, Auntie, etc. The initial reward for starting the game early. With her Digimind Evolution, 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. See her mod entry for info about her mod. Tldr for it: Good, but comes when we have other options available.
