• Heavy Weapon.
The Heavy Machine Gun is an unlockable Machine Gun weapon. Its most notable advantage is being fully loaded at the start of every fight, thus ensuring that a Trooper won't be running out of ammunition after the first Burst of fire.
Another advantage to the Heavy Machine Gun is its overall damage. All Machine Guns have adequate damage, but the Heavy Machine Gun has the highest damage at a jaw dropping 24-32 per burst (assuming that every bullet hits). Because of this, the Heavy Machine Gun will often overkill the target and can even make a noticeable dent in a tank. Like all Machine Guns, the real problem is delivering the damage because the Heavy Machine Gun has the lowest Aim in the game, at 70%, equal to the Gatling Gun. The Heavy Machine Gun also has the worst Recovery time at 150, equal to the Infernal Tube, Default Shotgun and Double-Barrelled Shotgun.
This weapon is best used in conjunction with Aiming skills, ideally Barrel Extension or Eye of the Tiger. Another ideal skill to use wit the Heavy Machine Gun is Loader, because when the weapon is empty, the trooper tends to holster this bad dude rather than reloading it. Thus, the Loader skill allows him to take full advantage of the weapon.
