    Dang, an MMG.  Not really interested in those.
    I played around with it today. It's sorta fun. HIGH rate of fire, and it doesn't have a huge magazine/clip/drum, so it's not like someone can sit and camp for days. About 3-4 seconds of sustained fire with minimal vertical recoil, but then you have to reload. 
    Hip-firing is a chore because recoil is all over the place as ADS only works with the bipod.

    So whats the point of using it over FG42 or KE7?

    If you get to 40 you get a gimp mask from Pulp Fiction. Nachtigall's knees look like she has wrapped my wife's Boob Tube around them.

    Facepaints, weapon skins, American infantry outfits, CC rewards... not exactly inspiring. Lock all the good stuff behind a paywall I guess

    Seemed like a fair few facepaints, weapon skins, cosmetic items and melee weapons (Arditi dagger anyone?) for the weekly rewards too, up to week six. Think it's two guns? This MMG and a semi-auto.

    It's worse than that. I did some number crunching, which I admit might be wrong, and using the mag size and sustained fire number, I got a 550-600 RPM. That's either comparable to the LS/26, or worse case scenario, the Lewis gun (540 RPM). The LS/26 comparison, but if it's at the level of the Lewis gun, well, the Lewis gun doesn't have to bi-pod to aim fire, gets a no glint 3x scope AND has either 47 or 97! rounds in the magazine.

    Apparently, the last German cosmetic with the face mask is based on an infamous Schutztaffel unit ... the unit was composed of criminals, and it was alleged that this unit committed quite a lot of war crimes.

    EDIT: This was the brigade that wore something like this mask:

    Here's a few snippets from the Wikipedia article:

    "... During its operations, it engaged in (word removed due to forum filters), pillaging and mass murder of civilians ..."

    "... The unit participated in some of World War II's most notorious campaigns of terror in Belarus, where it carved out a reputation within the (term removed due to forum filters, refers to Schutztaffel) for committing atrocities ..."

    Not a very pleasant bunch, these soldiers ...

    Large modes like conquest it was crashing the game in the testing faze.   So its delayed.  I guess the smaller game modes might have Al Sundan.  But I don't play those.

    Nice, what you you get for reaching rank 40 in Chapter 4?  A facepaint perhaps - Constipated?. Unlock a golden spoon for stirring your tea in the trenches? A panto mask?  Unlock the stuttering fix? A fire-rake? I'm getting there fast I can tell you... 

    I'd be up for a panto mask so long as it's Richard Wittington.

    Really looks and fells like it should be an LMG.
    This one both looks and feels like an LMG, because that is what it is, in real life this weapon is classified as an LMG, no clue why Dice had decided to call it an MMG in the game though, but then again they are terrible when it comes to knowing something about the things they put into their game, interesting to call their community for uneducated because people react to them rewriting history when they keep on coming with mistakes like this.

    After using the new MG for a few games I personally feel like it should have been classed a standard LMG as opposed to an MMG. The magazine size and fire rate don't seem to lend themselves well to the MMG bipod requirement.  I often found myself running dry just as I was about to suppress or down another player, or getting killed by other players before I could deploy the bipod which is a symptom of the MMGs in general.  I tend to play all classes aggressively so MMGs as a whole don't really do it for me.  From my experience using the new MG so far, it feels like it would play more fluidly as a run and gun LMG like the FG-42.

    30 bullets on an MMG is silly, all the MMG's have the option to upgrade the amount with specialisations. The weapon itself is good, I had no issues getting kills. I have now gone for the quick reload specification! I see no reason to use this over any other MMG, the MG 42 fires quicker and has 250 rounds - no comparison. I will get it gold like all my other MMG's but after that I don't think I'll use it again - which is a shame as one critical flaw has made it an untenable option.
