Light Machineguns (LMG's) are the staple weapons of the Support class that allow them to take a huge variety of support roles, from fire support with the the M96, to close-range combat with the M249, to long-range domination with the L86, to point defense with the 6P41, to spearheading attacks with the MG36. Light Machineguns are less accurate than the Assault's collection of Assault Rifles and take a while to ready, but have excellent damage per second ratings and have large magazines, making them powerful weapons, especially for defence, once the operator is situated in cover.
