About Light Machine Gun in COD & COD Mobile

A Light Machine Gun, aka LMG, is a kind of weapon in the COD series.

It is a hybrid between an Assault Rifle and a Heavy Machine Gun. LMGs have got the similar power and ammo to Heavy ones, but their capacity and damage share similarities with those of a Submachine Gun. In fact, their behavior and performance fluctuate between games.

Lmg Cod Mobile
LMGs are best for medium to long-range fights.

The setbacks of light machine guns are their universally poor handling characteristics. Players who use them usually move much slower due to their weight. Moreover, they spend a long period of time to aim and most of them also take long durations to reload.

To compensate for this drawback, LMGs often have extremely big hip-fire cones by default. It is better to get a backup weapon to call in play if you ever meet disadvantages at close quarters.

Meanwhile, Light Machine Guns are most effective in medium to long-range gunfights thanks to their extended damage output and capacity. They help players easily take out lightly armed foes such as Submachine Gunners and Shotgun users.
