FN Mk 48 has the slowest firing speed among all the machine gun, so enhancing Rof stat is highly recommended. +3 of it will boost the weapon firing speed to 90%, which is standard for a machine gun, +5 will boost the Rof to 92% which is deadly in zombie mode as the berserk zombie cannot move any further when being fire upon. Mk 48's recoil isn't as high as some machine guns but should be enhanced together with Rof to futher improve stability. Its base damage is already high and the clip size is also big for a machine gun.
