M249 is in!
Helk has done a first pass at implementing a new machine gun, the M249. As the description states, it is a “high damage, high rate of fire, belt fed light machine gun” - and it looks fucking badass! Firing 5.56 ammo at a rate comparable to the SMG, this behemoth will have you mowing down Newmans in no time. With such power comes quite a bit of recoil, so short bursts will be required to maintain any level of accuracy. Here are some more details and pictures:
50 HQM, 200 wood
Time to craft
Only found at heli crash sites
100 rounds of 5.56
Rate of fire
Several rounds per second
Pulls up quick (faster than the AK)
Edit: The M249 has just been made not craftable or able to be researched. You can only obtain it at the helicopter crash sites!
