The Advanced MG requires sustained fire to destroy a vehicle, unlike the LMG's from previous games, which can destroy vehicles in just a few rounds. The weapon is best suited for engaging multiple enemies at close to medium ranges. The Advanced MG suffers in long range combat, being outclassed by the other rifles and even the SMGs.

The M249, also known as Advanced MG and Combat MG, is a weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description Edit

Vice City StoriesEdit

M249 VCS

Victor Vance running with an M249.

In GTA Vice City Stories, the weapon is a powerful, one shot kill gun that holds 100 rounds per magazine, and is capable of knocking down a person when hit (similar to the way shotguns do), but is slightly less effective than the Minigun. Unlike the M60 from GTA Vice City and GTA Liberty City Stories, the M249 has a unique firing and reloading animation, no longer copied from the assault rifle animation. Victims shot with this weapon will release a large amount of splattering blood than other machine guns do.

The M249 is a weapon of choice for several Rampages and is featured during Farewell to Arms.

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

Advancedmg

Luis with an Advanced MG.

The M249 in The Ballad of Gay Tony (referred to as the Advanced MG) is the first light machine gun to be featured in the HD Universe. The weapon is placed in the Assault Rifle slot, unlike in GTA Vice City Stories where the M249 would occupy the Heavy Weapons slot.

It has a 200 round magazine capacity and high rate of fire but has less stopping power and accuracy than the AK-47 and the carbine. It is highly inaccurate because the weapon is fired from the hip rather than the shoulder. The Advanced MG requires sustained fire to destroy a vehicle, unlike the LMG's from previous games, which can destroy vehicles in just a few rounds. The weapon is best suited for engaging multiple enemies at close to medium ranges. The Advanced MG suffers in long range combat, being outclassed by the other rifles and even the SMGs.

It is first given to Luis in the mission Going Deep for Ray Bulgarin.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

ThreeKillers-GTAV

The Advanced MG makes a comeback in GTA V by the name Combat MG. The Combat MG is available after the Heist Blitz Play. The Combat MG is based on a Mark 46 Mod 0, a lightweight variant of the M249, with the stock of an M60.

This weapon is superior all-rounds to SMGs, the Assault Rifle, and the MG. It shoots further but with less accuracy than the Carbine Rifle. Its recoil is also notably lighter than the MG.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

The Advanced MG is available at level 80 in the Grand Theft Auto Online. It retains its single player qualities with decent rate of fire, high damage but somewhat slow reload and low mobility.  It is commonly found in item crates available in Gang Attacks
