Trivia

  • MG36 is the second machine gun that comes with a usable optical scope after SKULL-7.
  • Unlike other Christmas Edition weapons, the MG36 X-Mas has its own unique ammunition, reload animation, and the addition of a silencer.
  • When viewing the MG36 X-Mas through a model viewer, the second drum mag can still be seen right below the first-person model and out of regular sight. This may mean a simple reskin that utilized both drum mags during reload animation was planned earlier on.
