Tips and Tactics

  • Camping
    Due to the heavy weight which will slow down movement speed and reducing accuracy while shooting, camping will be the best tactic suitable for MG3 users.



  • In real life, this gun has a capable to fire up more 1,000 rounds per minute means that boasts with very high rate of fire. But in-game the rate of fire is mediocre presumably because of game balance.
