What Are The Best LMGs In Battlefield 2042?


Battlefield Weapons LCMG

We absolutely love the LCMG. It's got everything you want from an LMG but at the same time it's fairly mobile, and it's very easy to control, the lack of recoil actually makes it one of the easiest weapons in Battlefield 2042 full stop. Being available at level 1, you can begin grinding it immediately, which we're also a fan of. If you want to make the most of this weapon, then make sure you fill your attachment slots out for different scenarios - the LCMG is hugely customizable so being able to swap between builds in-game will give you unprecedented versatility.

Both of these LMGs have impressed us. In Battlefield, more so than other shooters, LMGs have a real place and can be hugely effective. But the PKP we feel is just slightly better because it's broken TTK. It doesn't hurt that you've got a whopping 200 rounds either, that means you can sustain 15 seconds of full auto, which is just absurd. Tthe lack of customization prevents you from making the PKP mobile enough for close-range environments, but this is an LMG trier list after all.
