"Traditionally, a light machine gun (LMG) is typically chambered for cartridges such as 5.56 NATO or 7.62 NATO, and rarely anything more powerful. It sits below the impossible-to-realize ideal of a heavy machine gun (HMG), as those are typically in huge calibers like .50 BMG or 12.7x108mm; they are thought of as "impossible" because the size and weight of such weapons would all but render them impossible to carry by a single person, making them less than desirable in a world like that of the Mazes. When a team of curious engineers realized that there was a "gap" between these two traditional definitions, and figured out that a man-portable machine gun with more power than even the best LMGs was possible, they went to work to fill said gap, and the result was the LightWeight Medium Machine Gun, a belt-fed machine gun designed to fire .338 Norma Magnum. A feat that speaks for itself."

The LWMMG is a .338 Norma Magnum machine gun.

Obtaining this weapon

This weapon is referred to as a Specs-docs only weapon. It cannot be normally found in the Mazes, and will only be available after completing the following requirements:

  • Turn in the following specifications documents to the Proving Grounds engineer, at the Calfair Sector workshop:
    • #PF617 - Prototype .338-caliber medium machine gun blueprints
    • #RD196 - Recoil impulse averaging technology for use in a machine gun

Upon completing the requirements listed above, the following items will become available for sale at the Calfair Sector workshop from the Proving Grounds engineer:

  • The LWMMG machine gun itself, sold with an empty 50-round ammo belt box, for Parallar symbol.png5000
  • Spare LWMMG 50-round ammo belt boxes (empty), for Parallar symbol.png2000 apiece
  • Boxes of LWMMG disintegrating belt links (100 per box), for Parallar symbol.png1000 per box

For this reason, this weapon is Rarity 7 (Unique). Please note that the Proving Grounds engineer is only available during the day shift (between 8 AM and 8 PM).

  • Rechambering: LWMMG Plus

LWMMG Plus

The two cartridges are very similar. So similar, that all that's required to make the LWMMG even more terrifying is to swap the barrel out for one chambered in this caliber: .338 Lapua Magnum.
