Machine Guns and You[]

Rifle-caliber Machine Guns form the "heavy" spectrum of Machine Guns in the game, contrasting the "lighter", weaker, more controllable, handgun ammo using Sub-Machine Guns. Rifle-caliber Machine Guns are split into 3 categories that differ in firing rate and overall DPS:

  • Assault Rifles: Assault Rifles were once the standard offensive weapon for modern troops. In DF, with the exception of the Hammerhead 47 and the X-AK 47, Assault Rifles are effectively lower-leveled Rifle-caliber Machine Guns, having lower DPS, rate of fire and much poorer knockback, but faster reload speed compared to the other 2 types. In the Marketplace, Assault Rifles are grouped with Sub-Machine Guns in the Light Machineguns search category, while Heavy Machine Guns and Miniguns form the Heavy Machineguns search category.
  • Heavy Machine Guns: A misnomer used to refer to the various light machine guns used by survivors in the game. Heavy Machine Guns can be said to be the first truly "heavy" weapon available, sporting Super Fast Firing Speed (8.571 rounds per second) compared to the 6.667 rounds per second of ARs and SMGs, as well as increased DPS output and knockback that can allow them to hold ground for extended period of time. Heavy Machine Guns typically have large magazine capacity, which is somewhat balanced by their Slow Reload Speed.
  • Miniguns: A term used to all Gatling-style rotaty barrel machine guns. Although they employ epic ammo consumption rate (F***ing Fast! Firing Speed), epic stat consumption, extremely low accuracy, and extremely slow reloading speed, they simply pay it out with extreme raw power and knock back. Similar to Shotguns, Miniguns are capable of firing multiple pellets with each shot, with the pellets themselves having a maximum spread of 36 degree that is completely unaffected by Accuracy. Miniguns have an even smaller critical chance compared to their peers, and applies critical damage to all pellets in a critical shot (although only 1 of them will be highlighted yellow)

Regardless of type, all rifle-caliber Machines Guns suffer from a large number of limitations designed to balance their destructive power and high capacity: The poorest accuracy lever possible in the game at Very Low Accuracy, an extremely high stat requirement in 100 Strength and a rather poor reloading speed that gets worse as you move on to heavier variants. Ironically, their strength of having the highest rate of fire in the game can also be considered to be a curse, as this means that you will be chewing through expensive rifle ammunition at an extremely rapid pace.

Requirements[]

30 points of Strength and 40 points of Machine Gun proficiency are required to wield the first 4 Assault Rifles: The M16, FM FNC, SA80, Mesa ACR, while the first Heavy Machine Gun, the FM Mitrail, requires 80 Strength and 90 Machine Gun proficiency. All Miniguns require 100 Strength and at least 100 Machine Gun proficiency.

Rifle-caliber Machine Guns are infamously known for their stat guzzling characteristics, requiring very high Strength to wield the most heavy of HMGs/Miniguns and significant Accuracy investment to mitigate their accuracy issue. Reloading is useful for counteracting Assault Rifles' small capacity, but are not as needed when wielding HMGs/Miniguns due to their naturally larger capacity.

Usage Tips[]

Looting/Scouting[]

With a high chance of raising an aggro spike, low accuracy and high maintenance cost, rifle-caliber Machine Guns are perhaps the poorest weapon possible to bring during a looting trip. They should only be used as a self defense weapons against a sudden rush of zombie or to hold down loot spots, and should only be used sparingly in order to save ammunition and consolidate your looting profits.

Aggro Combat[]

Rifle-caliber Machine Guns stand out as the most powerful and heavy choice possible for an aggro combat situation. While other weapons (and Assault Rifles) are often forced to move around frequently in order to evade zombies, HMGs and Miniguns are fully capable of holding down a location for an extended amount of time and punching large holes into the horde formation, as long as you have the cash and ammunition to feed it:

  • The most important tip when using rifle-caliber Machine Guns against aggro is just to bring as much ammunition as possible. Rifle-caliber Machine Guns go through ammo like there is no tomorrow, and in an intense firefight, you can go through a shockingly large number of bullets in a short period of time. A secondary weapon like a pistol can also be useful, just in case you need to retreat for even more ammo.
  • As rifle-caliber Machine Guns have rather low accuracy, effective use requires getting close to the horde, but not so close as to the point where the chance of being harmed by exploding or puking zombies is significant.

Advantages and Disadvantages[]

Advantages

  • High DPS.
  • HMGs and Miniguns have the greatest knockback capability and fire rate of all weapon types in the game.
  • Large magazine capacity.

Disadvantages

  • Assault Rifle have rather poor knockback power, losing out to a properly optimized Sub-Machine Gun.
  • Extremely high stat requirement.
  • Extremely high ammunition cost.
  • Very poor accuracy.

Real Name: M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR)
The American answer to the light machine gun during WW1, the BAR M1918 enjoyed a relatively long service life, serving in WWII, the Korean War and the early stages of the Vietnam War. It had a love-hate relationship with the army during its tenure; soldiers appreciated its stopping power and accuracy, but often complained about its tiny magazine, lack of suppressive fire capability, and "Rube Goldberg" like rate-reducer mechanism which caused frequent jams when not regularly cleaned. Its design being based on the "walking fire" concept, use of by then intermediate cartridge, and 20-round detachable box mag made the BAR considered by some to be one of the predecessors to the modern assault rifle concept, alongside the Ribeyrolles M1918 and the Fedorov Avtomat.

The Minimi is a Belgian-made squad automatic weapon that fires the NATO standard 5.56x45mm round, although a 7.62 x 51mm NATO variant exists. Though it's usually fed from 200-round plastic drums, or 100- or 200-round cloth drums, the weapon is capable of accepting STANAG 4179 magazines. The weapon was adopted by the US Army and Marine Corps as the M249, replacing the M60 in most roles.

The Maschinengewehr 42 is a German general-purpose machine gun used exclusively by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS during the second half of World War II. Chambered in 7.92x57mm Mauser, it struck fear in the hearts of Allied soldiers, thanks to an unique recoil-operated roller locking mechanism that allows a blistering average fire rate of 1,200-1,500 rounds per minute. The MG 42 later on became the basis for the MG 3 chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, which succeeded it as the primary general-purpose machine gun of the modern German armed forces.

Destructive and mysterious, no one knows how this weapon was created, who actually designed and built it, or where it even came from. Rumor has it that this heavy machine gun was crafted from the bodies of slain survivors that were never recovered. But, as it seems that only a few highly secretive survivors have been able to find this unique weapon and use it, nothing is confirmed. Should you be lucky enough to get your hands on one of these, there is virtually no being, living or dead, that can hope to stand in your way. Be warned, however, that this weapon possesses a mind of its own: It may turn against survivors who are not able to use it correctly. One only has to ask any of the survivors who have lost a finger (or more) trying to maintain it, or been burned by the red-hot bullet casings it spat in their face, to see the proof.

Post apocalyptic engineering has proven to be second to none when it comes to developing tools to kill off mutations caused by the N-4 virus and this beautiful weapon is the epitome of that. After recovering experimental parts from Fairview's various bandit factions, the engineers in charge of AdminPwn and a few remaining officers from the Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal were called in to get to work improving the legendary X-Dusk Mag using these newly discovered resources and the results are shocking. After improving the frame with the experimental parts developed and correcting certain anomalies in the firing system, the baptized Dawn MAG is able to compete face to face against any of the mutant bosses (and bloodlusted bandits) that reside in Fairview, thanks to the implemented AP system, which It allows to fire the fearsome 14.5x114mm cartridge at speeds beyond subsonic, allowing it to pierce any type of armor seen on the largest and most powerful mutants as if it were a child's thing thus resulting in a weapon that surpassed the legendary GAU-19 in terms of firepower and utility. Due to how expensive the conversion to this weapon is, partly because of the resources required and partly because of the skilled labor involved, it is only available to those survivors with a high reputation as well as good monetary funds to afford the above said.

This weapon was conceived by the mysterious Bunny Man. Using a discarded FM Mitrail as a model, the first thing to be improved was to add a stock to avoid recoil and increase its stability, as well as a tripod, its firing system was changed to be able to use the 9x39mm cartridge and its magazine was replaced by a larger one, with a capacity of 450 rounds, thus resulting in an HMG capable of competing with the powerful X-Dusk Mag. Named "Hareraiser" as a nod to the video game fiasco of 1984, which Bunny Man himself his quite fond of.

Real Name: M61 Vulcan
The Vulcan is a hydraulically or pneumatically driven, six-barreled, air-cooled, electrically fired Gatling-style cannon, which fires various ammunition types at an extremely high rate. Yet somehow, the gunsmiths of Fairview city have managed to rig this machine to fire the much more common .50 BMG ammo, making firing the Vulcan possible in the condition of the city. The M61 and its derivatives have been the principal cannon armament of the United States military fixed-wing aircraft for fifty years.

A scrappily made weapon, made by Fort Pastor engineers in response to a shortage of autocannons. The XMG is a Gatling gun in the truest sense: Instead of an electric motor or a gas system, it is operated with an extendable hand crank tucked away to the left side, with fire rate depending on its user's arm strength. While its simple design compromises on accuracy and thus lethality, the XMG is nonetheless a passable option when you need to provide suppressive fire on the cheap.

The GShP-14.5 Burya (буря, Tempest) is rotary cannon developed by the Russian military at the early stage of the outbreak, and is currently being deployed by Russian heavy gunners tasked with clearing heavily infested zones. Little is known about this weapon, other than that it is gas-operated instead of being externally powered, and that it is specifically designed for the N2-enhanced human physique, as opposed to most other miniguns that started life as vehicle or aircraft mounted arnaments. The available Tempest copies are merely poor facsimiles, created by combining existing SCAR miniguns with whatever blueprints faxed to the SEZ facility before the power went out.

Release: July 27th, 2021 Requirements to craft:
  • Player Level: 120
  • 1x Tempest Blueprints
  • 1x SCAR 9000
  • 10x Devil Hearts
  • 3x Rare Metal Bar

In the never-ceasing race to build a machine gun capable of matching the GAU-19 in raw power, the many gunsmiths of Fairview's four outposts joined together in a massive collaboration. The outcome of their work was the XLGunner-8. A true beast of a machine gun that has left even AdminPwn's own Dusk gunsmiths somewhat green with envy. The XLGunner-8 is superior in pure damaging power than most light machine guns of its tier, it shoots with a “scattershot” effect, and fires as fast as a minigun. However, due to design limitations, it can only hold 120 rounds per drum and suffers from poorer accuracy due to a shorter barrel.

Real Name: GAU-19/A
The GAU-19 is an electrically driven Gatling Gun that fires deadly .50 BMG (12.7 x 99 mm) rounds at up to 1000-2000 rounds per minute. Weighing in at a hefty 139 pounds and having a recoil force exceeding 500 pounds, the GAU-19 normally cannot be wielded by a man and is intended for use in helicopters, on ships and vehicles - however, gunsmiths have, somehow, someway, modified the minigun for human use. These modifications include reducing the firing speed to "only" about 700 rounds per minute, implementing a new cartridge feeding & firing system as well as material replacements at various parts of the gun. In conjunction, all these changes reduced felt recoil by massive amounts and cut the overall weight almost in half, which greatly enhances the usability of the GAU-19 by humans.

A massive Gatling gun based on Richard Gatling's original designs used in the American Civil War, this minigun has made post-outbreak history in becoming the first weapon to outstrip the GAU-19 in its damaging ability. With the implementation of the new "Junkyard" technology used since a year ago and the use of 14.5x114mm ammo imported from Russia, this gun can fire rounds at a devastating velocity at the expense of a slower 500 rounds per minute, to prevent the gun from overheating and exploding when fired too long. With this, the Wraith Cannon is among the deadliest weapons we have to combat the infected. So called because of its ability to tear a Wraith into shreds in a matter of minutes. The same can be said about other heavily, mutated infected.
