    WARNING: This gun is still in the test place, the stats can change at any time or can be even scrapped entirely!

    Overview

    The MG42 is a German belt fed LMG from World War II.
    It is unlocked at Rank 142!

    So you thought the MG3KWS melts people? This does it even better!
    It deals a higher 40 -> 23 damage due to the larger caliber known as 7.92x57mm Mauser and fires at an extremely deadly 1200 RPM which can be increased and decreased with various bolt attachments.

    Just like the MG3KWS it also feeds from a 50 round belt magazine, but it will drain it even faster due to the higher fire rate, so be careful with how much you fire!
    However, it reloads faster than other belt fed LMG's only taking 6.1 seconds, it is the fastest reloading belt mag LMG in the game even beating the HK51B!

    The recoil of this weapon is extremely high having a very high vertical kick and even kicking high horizontally, it is impossible to fully tame it.
    If you think hipfiring is any good, no it is not, it kicks very hard, it kicks so hard that even your camera tilts diagonally.

    It has the same iron sights as the MG3KWS!


    Heavy Bolt

    Replaces your bolt with a heavier one, slightly reducing recoil and improving recoil recovery.
    However, it will make your weapon heavier and drops fire rate to 900 RPM.

    A lowered fire rate isn't always a bad thing, it makes your gun more controllable.


    Light Bolt

    Makes your weapon more lightweight and increases the fire rate to a very high 1500 RPM!
    But increases recoil and slows down recoil recovery!

    The higher RPM makes your gun really hard to control!


    Attachments

    The MG42 has a few unique attachments which are the Anti-Aircraft Irons, Hera CQR Grip, Heavy Bolt and Light Bolt!

    If you want a loadout, I recommend you this:

    • DDHB Reflex
    • Compensator
    • Stubby Grip
    • Tri Laser
    • Default

    If you want more recoil control, use the Heavy Bolt!


    Trivia

    • This weapon was sitting in Shay's gun place ever since the MG3KWS was made, leaving it unused for years.
    • It has a nickname referencing an evil man that I do not wish to name to prevent getting in trouble with the Stylis Moderation Team.
    • Combining the Muzzle Booster and Light Bolt increases your RPM to 1620!

    My opinion on this gun

    It is very hard to use, but it is surprisingly satisfying for me.
    It actually feels enjoyable despite the high recoil.

    But it is surely not easy to use.

    I rate this gun a 7.5 out of 10!

    According to the rules, I don't think Hitler's Buzzsaw gets you moderation, but swastikas and that kind of stuff do.
