The Machine Gun is favored as an effective and inexpensive way for Battle Armor to combat infantry thanks to its sheer firepower and impressive rate of fire.[1] First derived from infantry support models, in terms of capabilities it can easily rival its larger vehicular cousins typically mounted on BattleMechs and combat vehicles.[1][4][5]
