Tactics[edit | edit source]

Basically a M249 SAW with increased range, rate of fire, damage per shot and accuracy, in addition to a faster reload speed, it is capable of mowing down multiple waves of zombies with ease. However, whilst it reloads more quickly than the SAW, it still does so slowly and it would be a good idea to keep a survivor nearby to protect its wielder during this period of vulnerability.
