No u dum, its a classification. Everyone uses the RPK as an example but it was a shit gun that no one uses anymore cause it doesn't follow the LMG formula and uses a full powered caliber and as a result weighs as much as your mom.

Sorry, I got confused between the RPK and the PKM.

Speaking of, what's the difference between the RPK and the RPD?
>>
>>289779895
RPK is like an AK with a long, heavy barrel and a bipod.

RPD is totally different and is belt fed.
>>
>>289779895
RPK is an AK with a heavier receiver and barrel. Can take the same magazines. It's on the lightest end of light machineguns and is very much meant to keep up with riflemen for mobility.

An RPD is beltfed with a top opening tray and detachable box. Not as good, since it doesn't have a huge capacity, and it can't take normal rifleman magazines. The action is very non-AK, and more like a DPM.

You know all this right? Your just being a silly troll and are not truly this dumb right?

On a completely unarmored person, a sword will generally do more damage to a person than a gun will (unless it's a big gun).

A well placed sword slash can cleave a huge cut into a person. It can disembowel them, hack chunks out of them and if it's a really hard hit, remove limbs.

In comparison, if you shoot someone with a gun, sure it'll hurt them, but it wont do that much damage. They wont lose limbs (potentially they'll be unable to use it), their guts wont spill out, nor will chunks of them be removed from their body.

Sure, guns are still fatal and a headshot will generally kill someone. But they're generally less destructive than a sword. Swords just have the potential to inflict damage over a larger area of the body than a gun.

>(unless it's a big gun)

Fun fact. The bullets from most rifles are smaller and lighter than the bullets from a pistol. They just move faster.

A bullet puts a relatively small hole in someone. Sure if it hits the right place it can kill, but it's still a small hole.

A sword just inflicts larger wounds.

The bullet itself isn't what does most of the damage. It's the kinetic force the bullet delivers; many bullets fragment on impact precisely to maximise this force. Most modern rounds from assault rifle can very literally blow chunks out of people or remove limbs, and heavier calibres from mounted weapons are easily capable of cutting people entirely into pieces.

Not an LMG. You vidya retards need to get the concept knocked through your heads that not all machineguns are made for the same reason.

>Then why don't create reliable 100 rounds ar mags
Those or similar actually do exist. But you see, the problem is that a standard rifle has a barrel too light, and the overall weapon is too lightly built to handle sustained fire at machinegun levels.

And if you went and made a rifle with a heavier barrel and receiver, and then stuck high capacity magazines in it...you just created an LMG.

**********************

In any case, the above was real life, as for vidya balance, you really have to look at the overall mechanics of a game. In general I think melee weapon should be extremely high risk/high reward weapons with the payoff being no blip on a mini-map and more XP or whatever the in-game points system is.

shotting things is easier for you, you don't get exposed to enemy attack as much as attacking at melee distance.

so in order to balance the game out, they make melee weapons do more damage than guns.

if guns were always more powerful than swords, then no one would use swords, as opposed to games where swords are more powerful, entices players to think creatively in how to approach the target to get hits in with the sword instead of just camping.

The FG-42 in old 'Day of Defeat' was the fucking best.

That game, by the way also handled medium machineguns great, since you *could* shoot an MG-42 from the hip, but unless you were bumped next to the enemy, you weren't hitting shit. An MG-42 set up in a good position felt wonderfully overpowered though.

50 bmg is a scary cartridge.
There are receivers, barrels, and larger mags for smaller rifles to make it into a mid to close range weapon, even if a little unwieldy, much like any melee weapon with enough mass to severe a limb or torso in two.

A zweihander would pair up next to a bmg cavitation but one of which can be fired faster, weigh less overall, require less wielder training, and all from the comfort of an inconspicuous location with great accuracy.

There's bigger you can carry and yet fire.
Try 20mm rifles.
But these aren't even practical for antipersonnel use.
They'd take aircraft out in one well placed shot.

Someone tells you to hold your arm out. Then they give you the choice. Get shot in the arm, or have someone slice it with a sword.

The sword because a 5.56 round would reduce my forearm to giblets which wouldn't be able to be recovered.

In a military shooter, you use standard military equipment. Which is an assault rifle that fires 5.56x45mm rounds. Occasionally you'll use other standard military weapons, but you sure as hell aren't carrying around a fucking howitzer that can blast a person into little pieces. Which is what you're trying to compare your average gun to.

It's not uncommon to See M14's in military shooters, pretty sure the latest military shooter had one... pretty sure every military shooter has one because it has been an iconic weapon since vietnam.

He's most likely not real. The description was already suspect since they said it was a Browning M2 and that they're mounted on Humvees, when it's clearly not and it's not even American. I think it's a KORD or NSV, and they're quite large. The image itself looks like it was doctored. This image and its accompanying text were the only source for this guy's existence.

>Most fire 7.62
what

the ONLY way a LMG could fire 7.62 and still be classified a LMG is if it were an old RPK, which isn't even used in Russia anymore since the advent of the RPK-74

that leaves 7.62 NATO. and if a MG is firing 7.62 NATO, it's a General-Purpose Machine Gun, or GPMG (or MMG if you prefer)

this is of course not counting weird chinese designs that no one understands.

but seriously if your machine gun shoots "7.62" and it's not shooting AK food, it's not a LMG but a GPMG.

MG3 is a GPMG
240 is a GPMG
PKM is a GPMG
M60 is a GPMG

of course you can generally blame Cawadooty for people getting these wrong.

Fun fact, the guy with the sword trained for months for an elaborate battle with Ford, but Ford suggested to Spielberg only a day prior that it wouldn't be in Indie's character to have a fair fight if he had a gun

Rising storm actually balances melee with the banzai charge, it makes your aim shake and makes the charger more resistant to bullets, and this effect gets better the more chargers there are in a given area.

Of course, retards don't know how to banzai charge in that game so it ends up being as effective as real banzai charges are, AKA- not very.

I've gotten some pretty ridiculous katana kills though. Nothing like charging into a bunker and murdering everyone inside before they can react.

They do. It's called the Ares Shrike, it's a belt fed AR. Also there was a weapon called the Stoner 63 which could be converted between an AR and an LMG.

It's not just the magazines though, LMGs usually have heavier barrels to withstand the wear and tear of sustained fire. For example, the RPK is just an AK with a heavier, longer barrel.

He's actually not that wrong. The vast majority of gunshot wounds are non fatal. Blade injuries actually have a higher mortality rate than gunshots. Thing is most gunshot wounds are from low caliber saturday night special type guns, shitty .22 revolvers, .38s and the like.

I like how the MG42 dealt with it. They made the barrel modular and literally just carried spare barrels around with them and swapped them out when they got too hot.

>>289808114
Yeah, when guns were in their infancy, perhaps, when they were slow to load, likely to misfire, and hard to hit anything with. Necessity lead to the pike and shot formations in your picture. Then they merged the pike and the musket with the bayonet, and pike and shot gave way to the firing line, which was innovated upon with ranked fire and fire and advance tactics. Eventually, guns got so reliable and accurate that loose light infantry tactics replaced line fighting, and this has been the basis for modern firearms combat ever since.

But all of these things are easier to train than an archer or a knight, and drilling, teamwork and formation have always been part of any soldier's training. You could train men to fire and load a gun and organize formations like the one pictured in a matter of months. Longbowmen had to train from childhood. A knight would have to train for most of his teenage and adult life in riding, grappling, moving around in armor, the spear, the poleaxe, the sword, the mace, the hammer, the halberd, and whatever other weapons would be common to his area.

You can just hand people a sword and have them whack a dummy for a couple weeks. But they'd be fodder and get torn to pieces by mercenaries, knights, and men at arms who had actually trained to fight professionally.

Child soldiers are only ever deployed in places where the height of tactics is "Go to place, shoot at other guys, run when gun is empty or when too many of you are dead".

Can't do that. Need a beavertail grip safety for that, and I've not been to find one that will fit with my gun.

It actually has the ring hammer installed right now, the guns in pieces because I was a dumbass and bought these parts and tried to put it together before finding out I fucked up.

>specially the english longbow is overated
Tell that to the french.
The crossbow never actually replaced the bow, though. Crossbows had their downsides too, namely that they had a very low rate of fire, and could not be used from horseback. They did have the advantage of being much better at penetrating plate, though.

When the gun was becoming more popular, the bow and crossbow were both in common use by different peoples. Ultimately, the gun was easier to train than the bow, more powerful than the crossbow, and with reloading drills eventually became faster to fire than crossbows as well.

no worries, I'm going to fix it back up the way it was and maybe just sell it and buy a more customizable 1911 this summer.

Or I might buy a Beretta 92 brigadier and make it into a samurai edge.

Muskets did. Rifles did not.

The only swords used for combat after the arrival of mass produced rifles were used by cavalry, as aiming while riding was too ineffective.

Yes. Their very existence disproves all the fantasies of the sword-fan retard weaboos.

AFTER you've run out of ammunition at close range, you still don't use a sword, just a knife on the end of your rifle. Job done.

NO. 5.56 is just lighter.

That's it. That's the only reason it's used.

Where this wounding shit came from I don't know, but it needs to stop. It is meant to KILL.
