Real-life weapon

The Heckler & Koch MG5 was designed as a successor for the MG3 (itself derived from the MG42 designed during World War II). All versions of the MG5 are chambered in 7.62 mm.


  • The weapon was first shown in a special E3 build in 2016.
  • In the Public Test Server, the weapon blueprint was accidentally made available for purchase, and kept the damage and handling traits made for 1.3.
    • This was later removed and the stats were changed to be balanced with other LMGs for Update 1.4 and later, Update 1.5.
