Best Machine Guns

The Top Ten

IMI Tavor TAR-21

A metal wand that Muggles use to kill. - Prisoner of Azkaban book. Haha. Stupid Yanks

Okay this is a bullpup assault rifle and I doubt it actually got 25% of votes over 8

Tar 21 is shaped so creative

Best bullpup assult rifle


It is a very deadly weapon and if a man is not dead at the first hit he will be dead at the second he will be dead at the second and the most good thing I like about this is its magazine is too high and very very effective against a band of soldiers.

Minigun is most deadliest machine gun in history because of it fire power, fire rate. It is attauched to helicopters of american forces, and it is used inmany other military forces, that proofs that this machine gun is most deadliest of all time.

The mini gun is not a machine gun as it is not self powered. It requires a separate power source to operate. In the event of an E M P attack it could be rendered useless. I still think its cool though.

The M134 Minigun is an example of pure awesomeness! Its that simple, this gun is gatling away in movies, games, and real life. Anyone who stands in its way should know the phrase "YOU ARE TERMINATED! ".


My favourite on this list!
It was one out of two that stood up to my standards when I needed it.

The best ever accurate and powerful

The fal is amazingly powerful

That gun is so awesome


The tommy gun should be 1 on the list because it was the best by gangsters and cops and is probably the best but most people won't see your website so put popup adds and if I'm spleeing wrong it's because I ask my dad.

Ahh the 45. ACP firing "Chicago Piano". This is one of my favorite weapons of all time. Just the very look of the weapon makes me love it. It was a true marvel of American enginuity.

This is not a machine gun, it is an assault rifle, and don't critisize ME, because there is a major difference.

You want to hit someone with great power with accuracy, then move with Thompson.


Use it in battlefield, works like a BOOS

Best gun to kill with in Call of Duty

This Is an assault rifle.

Assault rifle. not MG


The culmination of decades of previous research, the M14 was the offspring of the M1 Garand project. Simple to mass-produce and to use, the M14 truely was a rugged, all-purpose rifle. It was accurate and packed a punch, with a larger ballistics round than the later M16. In retrospect, it was one of the most powerful and influential weapons of it's day, driving later influence for the AR-10 and other models made by Eugene Stoner. It was physically powerful and adaptable for a variety of conditions, making it the perfect weapon.

Great 7.62x51mm rifle, not sure why its on a machine gun list though! :D It's a great DMR and Sniper rifle though. I used it in Iraq in 2004 and even though I never had to shoot anybody during practice and live fire squad maneuvers I rarely missed a shot!

I like this gun but really it is an assault-rifle.

Best sniper still used today


I like M16 because of its is one of the most powerful machine in the world.

This is a assault rifle it should not be in the conversation.

It jams all the time
AK-47s are way better

It's an assult rifle..

M2 Browning

This weapon redefined the heavy machine-gun mission as a powerful, general-purpose weapon rather than just a man-killer. Mount it on a tripod, a pintle, a ring-mount, ball-mount, turret or aircraft and it will still destroy anything other than a serious AVF that gets in its line of fire.

Ultra-reliable, extremely powerful, long-ranged and psychologically as well as physically devastating, the Browning M1921 series has proven itself to be among the longest-serving and most versatile weapons available on the battlefield, and remains so today.

Well when I used this... It came in handy in protecting my squad. I was in Iraq I had the job of squad gunner. I was at the top of my squad and I had to wach out for any threats to my squad. We came under fire by two rpg's and three of my men died. I then begain to fire at the rige and killed two of the 10 men. Another rpg rocket hit the hum-v in front of me and killed the whole crew. I then killed the rest of the men on that rige and we moved out before more came. I wish I had known that the men on the rige was there. I would have saved all the lives lost on that day.

From Sgt. Page

This weapon is over 90 years old and it's still being used today. If I were a soldier in combat and had to choose what machine gun to use, I would definitely pick this one. An M2 can fire a 50 caliber round from 4.5 miles away. This is what you need to blow away an enemy unit. Not the M60, this! The M2 Browning is the King of Firearms.

One of the best if not best heavy MG's. Should be used primarily on vehicles or in the air. Its too darn heavy including tripod and ammo. It will jam if you hold the hammer down for more than 30 rounds. Great for medium to soft vehicles. Or buildings. Use in a squad.. I don't think so.unless direct access to transportation
Would hate to hump this into the boonies.


This isn't supposed to be in this category. As an assault rifle, then yeah. We are talking about giant magazines and heavy firepower kind of machine guns here.

Would u people stop voting on weapons because of how they are in video games

The ACR is a really cool gun in general because of its look and quality, I think that it is the best gun in MW3 and MW2!

The best rifle in American weapon industries


I prefer this weapon over the minigun because miniguns are so bulky and impractical, the m60 however, is very strong, fires large powerful ammo, and is built for any operation. You could throw this out of your hell before dropping down or throw it in a river. It would work like new.

This is a great gun because the army actually uses them! The minigun is only ever used on helecopters so can't really be a contender

This is a great list. It's about machine guns, but it has other sorts of firearms too. Sarcasm.

Come on! Rambo has touched this weapon. That's enough said.

The Contenders


Any gun that can be dunked in mudd and snow and sand then fired while filled with water safely, and with a high degree of accuracy, is A+ number one tops in my book any day of the week. No other gun on the list comes close.

20?! This Should be either 3rd, 2nd, or even 1st! This machine gun is the best machine gun in history. People in EVERY video game use it. And everyone in a war uses it basiclly! This gun is awesome!

This gun was made preeminently by Kalashnokov. It's better then American M-16 you can see it on youtube there is one video where we competed M-16 and AK-47!

It is the best and old machine gun in the world history and I also like this gun it is my lucky gum

Robinson Armament XCR
M61 Vulcan

A gatling style gun and bigger brother of the minigun. It was developed in the 1960's and powerfuller and faster than a minigun with 20mm bullets and 7200 rounds per min.
It is used in aircraft like the F-22, F-15 and F-16

The Vulcan is in the f-14.

Not a machine gun �" this a cannon.

SIG SG 550
Gatling Gun

These guns have the highest rate of fire among any other machineguns. Try to shoot a car, it will be ripped to shreds.

One of the most recognizable machine guns originated in the United States.

It is the best machine gun in my opinion

GAU-8 Avenger

A much more owerfull minigun. The minigun has around 7mm bullets but GAU-8 has 30mm but it's rate of fire is lower. It's rate of fire is around 4000 bullets pre min.

It fires bullets the size of beer bottles at a rate of over 60 per second at 3250 feet per second. It can rip a tank to shreds.

XM214 Microgun

Just epic. PLain epic.

MG 42

This mg was designed 80 years ago. It is still probably the best of medium machine guns. Its cyclic rate of fire is probably the highest of all heavily produced medium MG's. It fires so fast you can't hear individual shots. Sounds like tearing paper.. USA's m60 was modeled from it. Direct results are best..probable million Russian and allied casualties from this one weapon.

First to use air cooling mechanism. Easily assembled in a factory and all around great machine gun with a very German quality feel. It also spawned several predecessors such as the M60. Plus its direct descendant, the MG3, which I would say is better but not as renowned on the battlefield as the MG42 was in Europe.

I think the mg42 is way more better then the minigun because the minigun shoots more faster then the 42 but the 42 has a bigger caliber and minigun is heavy and you can't aim with it but the 42 is lighter and it has iron sights.

Why is this gun at 16? This gun defined the General Purpose Machine gun concept. There was a reason the allies borrowed features of this gun in later designs... It should be in the top 5 for sure

M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon)

The M249 SAW is very high quality and is very tough to beat with it's high rpm good range, and exceptional amount of bullets per mag if you are counting all types of machine guns besides light machine guns. You would definitely want this gun in the military.

M249 saw can fire from link bullet chains of 500 rounds or from magazines. It can also fire from m16 clip in an emergency. If you were shot with it you'd be dead before you felt the pain. It is the most powerful machine gun that is portable and mounted.

There are quite a few differences between machine guns and full-auto rifles and submachine guns. Anyway, SAW for the win, it's an awesome weapon.

Awesome machine gun, should be in the top 3. The AK-47 doesn't deserve the top spot, it's inaccurate and yes the recoil is huge.

Steyr AUG

Guy's, this is an Austrian made weapon. But I got to fire Australian variant "F-88" at a firing range and absolutely fell in love with it. It's accurate, it's reliable and very deadly.

It is Austrian not Australian, anyway I say it is 1 of the best machine guns because it isn't just machine gun it is a assault rifle a light machine gun and an sub-machine gun on the same time it have a good rate of fire and a changeable tube which make the users be happy to use any tube, the good ammunition makes it even better (30-42 rounds) but the only problem is the low cartridge which make less assault rifle and light machine gun and more sub-machine gun

Ehem. This is an assault rifle

by far the best australian assault rifle, the AUG is a bullpup rifle meaning the gun is short in length and a longer barrel.


I have one in hebrew markings... The best!

I will give67%of vote to uzi

This is a great gun is has served for a long time and is used a lot great range too it has to be one of my favorite submachine guns too bad its heavy but the weight reduces recoil

Fokker Leimberger

I got this info from wiki so if you don't believe its not my fault. The Fokker Leimberger was the first gatling style machine, it had 12 barrels, cable of 7200 rounds per min. Believe it or not this gun was first made in Germany WW1. It was an experimental gun and if put in production it could of made Germany win the war.


This list is so messed up but the PPSh is my favorite (sub)machine gun so I chose it.

75 round clip unbeatable
