3 FN FAL

That gun is so awesome

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

Assault rifle. not a machine gun.

4 Thompson

This an American classic you can go full auto or single for accuracy this is the foundation of machine guns that are good lol the saw is modern though so etiher way but the ak can screw itself Thompson or saw 10 times better

Guys this is not an assault rifle or machine gun it's a sub machine gun the only assault rifle during World War II was owned by the nazis and I forgot the name it was something like sturmgwehur

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

This is a submachine gun and it fires a 45 caliber round this shouldn't be anywhere near the LMG bracket

5 SCAR-L

This Is an assault rifle.

Best gun to kill with in Call of Duty

Use it in battlefield, works like a BOOS

Assault rifle. not MG

6 M14

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.

Umm battle rifle much?

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.

7 M16

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

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

It's an assult rifle..

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

8 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.

This bad boy has been spilling guts ever since my great Grandparents was kicking. Its one bad assed gun that will leave a baseball sized hole in your wall (car, door, bad guy, annoying neighbor and the usual stray rats or ex-girlfriend)

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.

America has been using this type of machine gun since it has came out it is great, and reliable

9 ACR

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.

The best rifle in American weapon industries - ww2

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!

10 M60

it is 1 of only 2 actual machine guns on this list, who ever made the list is stupid.

The sound of this gun Freaks me out... The reason for so is, before you even react the click click click sounds have already claimed your life.

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.

It is a machine gun.

The Contenders

11 AK-47

Excuse me, correct me if I'm wrong but I do believe that an AK-47 is an assault rifle, dammit.

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.

I am living in India and ak47 is my favorite gun.

My favorite gun was the AK-47 when I was in the war in Armenia.

12 Robinson Armament XCR
13 M61 Vulcan

The Vulcan is in the f-14.

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 - GAU-8_Avenger

14 SIG SG 550
15 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.

It is the best machine gun in my opinion

16 GAU-8 Avenger

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.

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.

17 HK416
18 XM214 Microgun

Just epic. PLain epic.

19 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.

Fastest rate of fire of its time combined with easy barrel replacement makes this old geezer the best one around for number TWO

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

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.

20 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.

The m249 SAW is the best machine gun. Way better than the ak-47 and the styer aug. This weapon is used on helicopters and somtimes as turrets on the ground. You would not want to be shot by this weapon. - my111

This is the best machine gun, everybody is using it.
