New MG3 Light Machine Gun (LMG) in PUBG MOBILE & BGMI Guide

BGMI/PUBG just added a brand new weapon to this game, the MG3 is a new light machine gun with a 75 round capacity of 7.62 ammunition, no need to use attachments on this gun as it cannot accept magazines, grips or stock, just put a rifle scope on it and you’re good to go.

Is this NEW weapon better?

We will look at the stats of this weapon such as damage, rate of fire, recoil, etc. to find out how powerful this weapon is and its position in this game.

MG3 & M249

By the way, this new machine gun used 7.62 ammunition, so it must do a lot of damage. However, it has a low damage output. I think this MG3 has the same damage as a M249 who uses 5.56 ammunition. Don’t let this low damage fool you though. Since MG3 can compensate for that by shooting extremely fast, even your enemies wouldn’t even realize they are already dead, it can shoot that fast.

fire modes

It has two shooting ranges, 660 RPMand 990 shots per minute, which fires about 16 rounds per second, but remember MG3 has a base damage of 40If you do the math, multiplying the damage by the number of rounds it can fire in a second will give you damage per second. so MG3 has a DPS of 660 meaning it can deal 660 damage in a second.

For example, it only requires 100 damage to kill an enemy, so you have to imagine what this gun could do.

What about the recoil? MG3 will be difficult to control? or is it easy to handle?

Well, this is the MG3’s recoil behavior pattern. I know you wouldn’t understand anything unless we compare MG3’s recoil to other light machine guns like DP 27 and M249, so you’d better understand MG3’s recoil.

So there are the recoil patterns side by side, the first thing you would notice is the crazy recoil of the M249, it goes left and right in an unpredictable way, and if you don’t know the recent modification of the m249 or the so-called Pubg’s optimization, made M249 lose its true power, now it has super high recoil and slightly low damage output and slower rate of fire, all for a bigger magazine. Since it’s a world spawn weapon now, it doesn’t matter. The main role of the MG3 is to replace the old m249 we used to find in airdrops, and it certainly does that by having almost half of what the M249 recoils. But remember that both weapons deal the same amount of damage.

so clear MG3 has low recoil. To be fair, it has really low recoil, as low as some of the SMG’s recoil, and it shoots 16.5 rounds per second, which is crazy. I mean MG3 is an insanely powerful weapon and the recoil from the DP is really good it has very low horizontal recoil, I mean the sprays don’t go left and right like the other two LM-Gs. So the DP is well known for its extremely low recoil and is easy to use, reliable for long range sprays.

MG3 damage

I’m sure most of you don’t know this, light machine guns will work better if you’re crouching and even better if you’re prone. Couching can reduce up to 50% of recoil for Light Machine Guns† Literally, squat spraying with MG3 or m249 will reduce half of the original recoil, which is really interesting. But you know what, if you go forward and spray it will eliminate almost all recoil. So if you’re bad at controlling recoil then don’t worry about MG3, he generally has very low recoil.

However, if you’re still struggling to control its recoil, you can crouch and spray or lie down and spray to use its full potential. Especially if you go forward and fire you get literally zero recoil with MG3 even with other LMGs because you get a bipod that activates when you go forward, and it acts as a kickstand for the weapon to get most of the shot. eliminate the recoil.

Anyway, MG3 comes with two firing modes so the recoil will be different in each of those firing modes, by default you will get 990 RPM and if you switch to 660 RPM it will fire a little slower. If it fires slower, the recoil should also be low, however the vertical recoil will increase, which isn’t a big deal because the horizontal recoil will be reduced a lot, making the weapon less unpredictable.

So is it worth switching to 660 RPM?


I’d usually say no, but if you’re firing a very long distance and shaking your gun too much, or moving left and right more consistently, consider switching to 660 RPM and fire. It significantly reduces horizontal recoil so now you don’t feel too much weapon vibration at 660 RPM, but I’d rather just lay down and shoot at 990 RPM as it can eliminate almost all recoil.

MG3 looks very similar to M249, but MG3 is an airdrop weapon though, so would be a better weapon than any other LMG in this game, and I’d say the new MG3 is more powerful than the old M249 we used to get in the airdrops in the past.

So is it worth risking your life to get this new weapon from airdrops?

Yes absolutely, finally a new airdrop weapon that feels real and should only be in airdrops, unlike DBS, or the modified version of the new m249, or the AUG.


So if you ever find this new weapon, pick it up and use it, because why not, it can seriously damage your opponents with super fast firing rates you normally get in SMGs. But most importantly, it has extremely low recoil and can be easily sprayed at any distance, but be careful if you have a reload phobia as reloading this gun can take a very long time. If you actually killed yourself you have no excuse to use it, it’s like getting killed by a Win 94 player while using AWM.
