The M240 is the US military designation for the FN MAG.
Medal of Honor 2010Edit
It can be used in the mission Compromised, as Rabbit is evacuated from the ridge. It does high damage and has a medium-high rate of fire with very low recoil. In the game files, it is known as the FN 240 instead of M240.
It is available in two ways, mounted and man-portable, the latter only available to those who did a digital preorder for the PC.
This weapon is available mounted in several of the maps, particularly the Objective Raid maps. However, they are roughly the same as during the singleplayer. They have unlimited ammo, medium rate of fire, high damage, and are very accurate. However, it has a fairly quick overheat time and no ability to zoom in or use the ironsights.
Medal of Honor: WarfighterEdit
The M240 is seen at a few points throughout the Campaign, most notably serving as the main weapon for Tick of Task Force Mako. It is not usable by the player, however because the friendly and enemy NPCs do not carry one.
- "Used since the 1970ʹs this GPMG is both reliable and heavy hitting, its 7.62mm round is able to devastate both personnel and soft skinned armor."
- — Battlelog Description
For the player, the M240 is only usable in Multiplayer as one of the primary weapons that can be used by the Heavy Gunner class.
The weapon has a high level of damage per shot, comparable to the PKP, as well as decent accuracy and range. Surprisingly versatile, the low fire rate is bolstered by its high damage, making the weapon possible to use in close range combat. It's recoil can become uncontrollable when fired fully-automatically, so staying stationary and burst firing can improve your aim at medium range. Additionally, the M240 can be steadied on a surface through the use of a bipod, maximising accuracy at the cost of mobility and a limited cone of fire. Equipping an optic with zoom can also help when engaging over longer sight lines, but limits effectiveness at close range.
When used defensively, the M240 performs well. However, like many Light Machine Guns of the Heavy Gunner Class, the weapon suffers when used offensively. It's sluggish handling and debilitatingly slow movement speeds can be easily bested by an assault rifle or submachine-gun equipped enemy when the M240 is used in a run-and-gun style fashion. If you need to be aggressive with the weapon, be sure to find a suitable cover spot with good sight lines and remain stationary to harness the high-potential killing power of the weapon.
