Trivia

  • The real life MG42 is chambered with 7.92×57mm Mauser rounds and can hold up to 50 or 250 rounds belt.
  • This is the predecessor of the well-known MG3.
  • Unlike MG3's view model, this one shows the user holding the barrel shroud, even though there is a bipod for use. Repeated firing would cause the barrel shroud to be dangerously hot to hold it in real life.
