Heavy machine gun

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A heavy machine gun is a firearm introduced in SLASH'EM. It is often found on higher-ranking members of the Yendorian army. A heavy machine gun is set on fully automatic mode by default, but can be set to burst mode (rate of fire cut to 1/3) or single-shot mode by applying it. Due to its extreme weight and only marginally better rate of fire than assault rifles, it is generally not a viable weapon.

Rate of fire

In fully automatic mode, the heavy machine gun's rate of fire depends on its enchantment and skill of the user.
