View Full Version : A Guide for Light Machine Guns (LMGs)

Light machine guns are an underwhelming class of weapons, not only in Rainbow Six Siege but in any FPS for that matter.

Regardless, we have a total of 3 LMGs within Siege. Love it or hate it but you can't deny the fact that they are fun to use, specially when playing casual. With that insane firepower, at your disposal one should choose to lay back and play a supportive role.

Rushing wouldn't help at all, unless you're a highly skilled player. So conservative play will help you.

Moreover, all the LMGs have got a moderately high recoil, meaning that tap firing is the way to go.

Also, imo Capitao's M249 is the best among the three. Just think it's very versatile and does the job well.

With a mediocre damage, low fire rate and an insanely high recoil, LMGs within Siege aren't really meant for competitive play but are fun, when playing casual.

Fuze's LMG does a ton of environmental damage, so it can be put to good use opening up sightlines from long range into unreinforced objectives or rooms where you expect enemies might be lurking.

Its slow ROF means you can tap-fire and burst it to suppress enemies for quite a long time using one drum mag.

I prefer the 6P41 instead of the AK-12. It's pretty good at rapid firing and if you equip a flash hider the muzzle flash won't cause any problems at all
