Design Details

The .30 Caliber Light Machine Gun is grossly inaccurate, although it partially compensates by its high rate of fire. It is only moderately effective at medium range, and long range engagement is near-impossible. At close range, however, then it becomes highly effective. It acquired its nickname from its almost excessive rate of fire, shredding nearby targets into pieces similar to shards of confetti.

Other human firearms can do the same amount of damage with higher accuracy and a similar rate of fire as the .30 Caliber Light Machine Gun. It has thus been phased out of many ground forces, including all UNSC units in favor of the MA5 Series. It has since become a standard in the rebel factions alongside the similarly phased-out MA3 Assault Rifle due to its availability on the black market.

It is capable of firing both normal and Armor Piercing Rounds, such as the MUTA-AP-09334.[1]

The .30 Caliber Light Machine Gun may be related to the M247 General Purpose Machine Gun, as they both are fully automatic and both use .30 caliber ammunition.


The .30 Caliber Light Machine Gun became the standard infantry weapon of the United Rebel Front around 2531. These rebels used them against SPARTAN-II Blue Team when Blue Team attacked a United Rebel Front encampment, Camp New Hope, on the planet Victoria in the 111 Tauri System. The rebels were killed by Kurt-051 during the process of rescuing the captured Spartan-IIs.
