M249 SAW RDS render

The M249 SAW

Light Machine Guns are used for suppression in Operation Flashpoint: Red River


To suppress enemies, fire close to them and they will often dive to the ground or crouch and wait for the fire to stop. This makes them easy targets. The Automatic Rifleman can have a Special ability which increases the amount of tracers to improve suppression on LMGs.

Enemy usageEdit

Occasionally, other marines can be seen suppressed, but since the player can choose to move out under fire, suppression has less of an effect.

Light Machine GunsEdit

There are four LMGs in game: the M249 SAW, the Mk. 48 MOD 0, the PKP and the QBB95 SAW.
