Like in the previous game, the M249 is a high-damage, low rate of fire belt-fed weapon. Compared to the other belt-fed LMGs, the M249 deals more damage than the MG5 and magazine-fed LMGs, but less than the M60.
While it has high-damage, it suffers from poor stability, which results in swaying recoil when firing.
