A modernized FN MAG originally adopted as a vehicle mounted weapon, the M240 was chosen to replace the aging M60 in the ever-crucial medium machine gun role. It proved to be highly effective as such and very reliable, but also rather heavy.

Essentially a high level M249, it should be used in a similar manner. Its high damage per shot, high rate of fire, and large magazine add up to a very lethal weapon, although it has the characteristically long reload time of all LMGs. Its accuracy also leaves something to be desired, though its restriction to high level characters helps mitigate this.
- Weapon Cleaning Kits to increase its low accuracy.
- Ammunition Mods to further increase its already high damage, making it more efficient.
- Glasses to improve range, with some variants also increasing accuracy.
- Bandoliers/Ammunition Pouches/Carrier Harnesses to compensate for its slow reload.
