It's also worthless in the desert. Remember that if you get stuck with one.
just wondering... why is it worthless in the desert?
It jams. It jams early and it jams often. And since you have to take the thing halfway apart to clear one...
As long as you keep short controlled bursts, it usually doesn't jam. Unless you get a lot of crap in there like sand, you should be fine. But I agree, they are a b*tch to get cleared out of a jam. The M240B's are worse though in my opinion. Here's a picture of one:
The funny thing about these is that if you fire too many rounds within a certain period of time, the barrel will get so hot that it will actually melt. We had that happen during FTX when one of the machinegunners was laying down suppressing fire. So what you have to do is periodically swap out the barrel when putting down heavy fire for an extended period of time.
