Machinegun

Effective, but heavy, anti-infantry weapon.

InformationEdit

The machinegun is a supremely effective anti-personnel weapon that fires long bursts, causes serious damage to infantry and is capable of punching through early extraterrestrial armour with little trouble. However, as a heavy weapon, it suffers a number of inherent limitations. A considerable amount of time is required to shoot or reload the weapon, it is inaccurate when not fired by a stationary user, plus the weight and recoil of the weapon necessitates a strong trooper carry it into battle.

As with all heavy weapons, the machinegun is devastating when used correctly but leaves the soldier operating it vulnerable to enemy attack. The sheer weight of the weapon and the ammunition means that the gunner can only wear light armour into battle, and the significant accuracy penalty for moving in the same turn that the weapon is fired means that it is vulnerable to flanking. Despite this, the fearsome firepower of the machinegun means it is still a remarkably powerful battlefield tool.
