.50 BMG is a type of ammunition for firearms. It is classified as a (R)ifle caliber.

This cartridge was originally designed for use in the Browning M1921 and Browning M2 heavy machine guns, neither of which are man-portable firearms. Many decades after its introduction as a heavy machine gun round, it was adapted for use in specialized heavy precision rifles, known in real life as anti-materiel rifles (AMR). These rifles can be thought of as the spiritual successors to anti-tank rifles. The first modern AMR was the Barrett M82, a predecessor to the Barrett M82A1M featured in the game. It must be noted that in the Mazes, AMR stands instead for anti-monster rifle.

.50 BMG is pronounced fifty B-M-G.

This caliber may also be known as .50 Browning Machine Gun (full name), .50 Browning, and sometimes 12.7x99mm. It may also be referred to as simply .50, though it is not recommended, as it may be confused with the other .50 caliber cartridges in the game. The letters "BMG" are sometimes jokingly said to mean Big Motherfucking Gun as well.
