Description[edit | edit source]
The machine gunner's role is a somewhat specialized role in Squad. Unlike its lighter cousin, the automatic rifleman, the machine gunner is designed to provide suppressing fire at a longer range, with each general purpose machine gun (GPMG) featuring sights that zero beyond a kilometer. There is a limited amount of machine gunners per team, and a limit of one per squad to emphasize their specialized purpose.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Machine gunners should look for an effective firing position where they can cover a specific angle, or large open area.
- Suppressive fire should be used in combat at all times.
