The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.
The Belgian made M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) was adopted widely in the late 20th Century as a squad level machine gun, vastly increasing the firepower available to individual squads.

The M249 SAW is a big gun in Fallout Tactics.


  • This weapon starts to appear in great quantities during the St. Louis mission.

Behind the scenes

  • The real life Minimi M249 SAW uses the 5.56mm round, rather than the 7.62mm it is chambered for in Fallout Tactics. Perhaps, it should be a Mk 48 Mod 0, which is a re-chambered version of the original Minimi on request of the U.S. NAVSPECWAR and issued to U.S. Navy SEALs and U.S. Marines.
