The MG5 is a Light Machine Gun in Tom Clancy's The Division.

It is added in the 1.5 Update - Survival.

Real World Weapon Edit

The MG5 is a modern light machine gun of German origin. It was developed by Heckler & Koch in order to provide the German military with a light machine gun in order to supplement the older and heavier MG3.

The MG5 is a belt fed gas operated weapon with a rotating bolt. The quick change barrel is hammer forged and comes in two lengths. A polymer pistol grip, handguard and folding butt are fitted. Various accessories can be fitted including several types of mechanical and optical sights.

The MG5 fires the 7.62×51mm NATO round from disintegrating belts. The only fire mode is fully automatic at a rate of fire of about 800 rpm, or about 720 rpm for the export model. The effective range is about 400 m against point targets and 800 m against area targets. When mounted on a tripod or vehicle the maximum range is quoted to be 1 km.

  • 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.
