Light Machine Gun Unlocks
A light machine gun (LMG) is a machine gun designed to be employed by an individual soldier, with or without an assistant, as an infantry support weapon. They are the most common machine gun in the Battlefield Series.
LMGs suffer from lower than average accuracy compared to carbines and Assault Rifles (though unique to the weapon class). Also, recoil is generally higher compared to their assault rifle derivatives, with extreme rates of fire also lower. Beltfed machine guns suffer from the longest reload times of any weapon, as well as the highest hipfire spread, making them highly disadvantaged in close quarters scenarios.
LMGs gain increased accuracy when the player crouches or prones. A well-placed machine gun can effectively control squads of enemy, making them invaluable in the defensive role.
