MG36 (MG—Maschinengewehr "machine gun"): Light machine gun version of the G36 equipped with a heavy barrel for increased heat and cook-off resistance.

The Heckler & Koch G36 is a 5.56×45mm assault rifle, designed in the early 1990s by Heckler & Koch (H&K) in Germany as a replacement for the heavier 7.62mm G3 battle rifle. It was accepted into service with the Bundeswehr in 1995, replacing the G3. The G36 is gas-operated and feeds from a 30-round detachable box magazine or 100-round C-Mag drum magazine.

This weapon the sixth forth (4th) Tier of LMGs for the Specialist Support. It is considered by many to be an upgrade to the L86 series, with a similar mix damage, accuracy, and handling statistics, but is harder to control. The greatest strength of the MG36 is its flexibility akin to an Assault Rifle's, though it sacrifices some of the positve traits of LMGs for it. In addition to the C-mags, which lowers mobility, the MG36 has extended magazines, holding 50 rounds and has no averse affects on mobility.


  • The MG36 HLW is the Halloween variant of the MG36 featuring more damage (+2) at the expense of control.

  • The MG36 SD SC like all the Splinter Cell Pack weapons, is a stealthy weapon with a fixed silencer installed, perfect for flanking.
  • MG36-H SP R6 is a unique Tier IX (9) weapon which was released in the Rainbow Six packs.
