Call of Duty: Black Ops Light Machine Gun Guide

Light Machine Guns or “LMGs” are essentially larger, slower, and more powerful automatic weapons. In the Call of Duty series, LMGs have been characterized by large clip sizes, decent damage, and usually poor recoil. Call of Duty: Black Ops features a number of light machine guns, some of which, such as the Stoner63, being among the best weapons in the game.



Rate of Fire: 750
Clip Size: 40
Damage: 40

The RPK is a pretty decent all around Light Machine Gun in Call of Duty: Black Ops. With high damage and a high rate of fire, the RPK is a great weapon for spraying down enemy players, especially at medium range. The RPK has pretty high recoil, which means it can be a bit harder to use at long range. Likewise, the long reload times make it dangerous to use at close range as well, although the high rate of fire allows you to content with most weapons in CQC


Rate of Fire: 750
Clip Size: 30
Damage: 40

The HK21 is the first Light Machine Gun in Black Ops, and is also one of the strangest to use. Although the HK21 has the stopping power and reflexes of a LMG, the small clip is similar to that of an assault rifle. Unfortunately you cannot use the HK21 like an AR, since it gets dominated at closer ranges by faster firing weapons. The HK21 is best used to support your teammates from cover, as it can be very deadly at medium to long ranges. Using the round drum attachment is also a viable way to bring the magazine size up to par with the other light machine guns in the game.

Rate of Fire: 535
Clip Size: 100
Damage: 50-40

The M60 is arguably one of the best, if not the best LMG in Call of Duty: Black Ops. It features extremely high damage coupled with a decent output of fire and manageable recoil, making it deadly at medium ranges especially. The large clip size means you will spend less time reloading, although the reload time is the longest in the game. Since the gun has a great amount of natural ammo, you can substitute ammo oriented perks for ones like Hardened or Warlord, making the M60 an absolute beast in the battlefield


Rate of Fire: 937.5
Clip Size: 30
Damage: 50-40

The Stoner63 is the “classified” weapon unlocked by acquiring the rest of the light machine guns in Call of Duty: Black Ops. This LMG features a high rate of fire and damage, giving it the highest output of damage in the entire game. The main issue however, is the small clip size and poor hipfire accuracy, which can be solved using perks or weapon attachments. The Stoner63 also had great ADS speed, making it play almost like a very powerful assault rifle. As you can plainly see, this is a very commonly used weapon in Black Ops.
