The M1919 is a belt-fed light machine gun used extensively by the US Armed Forces. It's high rate of fire makes it very effective at suppressing enemy troops and well placed machine gun positions can halt an entire infantry attack.
The M1919 Browning is a belt-fed medium machine gun designed by John Browning, and is chambered in the powerful .30-06 Springfield round. It served as the primary defensive support weapon of the US Army throughout World War II, and its use of the disintegrating M1 link belts made it easy to clean and clear, reducing the chance of jams and making it significantly quicker to clear them when they occurred. Due to the weapon's weight, it was frequently mounted on vehicles and operated by two-man teams.
It was extremely prone to overheating, as the barrel was not as easily interchangeable as other machine guns of its era, and this led to many malfunctions.
The M1919 is a very strong defensive weapon, combining high rate of fire with good damage, and can mow down large squads of enemies in seconds. Its long length, low hipfire accuracy, inability to fire while jogging and bulky sights makes the Browning an awkward choice in close quarter combat. Burst fire is advised at longer ranges. It is better than the M1918 BAR in damage, but fires more rounds between reloads and reloads slower.
- You can walk or crouch to hipfire while moving. Very useful when approaching corners or inside buildings.
- Your accuracy increases substantially if you crouch or go prone.
- Always fire from cover, and be mindful of enemy positions. Your gunfire and tracers make you a prime target for snipers.
- Coordinate with teammates! This machine gun shines on the battlefield when supported by friendly units.
- This weapon functions better in defensive roles or as fire support for offensive units.
- Use suppression, or covering fire. Spraying at enemies in defensive positions will force them into hiding, allowing your allies to move up.
- It is advisable to carry anti-personnel Mines or frag grenades to help defend your position.
- When you are trying to capture objectives, try to reload befoe you get going, you can mow down enemy Infantry, Paratroopers and Recontroops.
- Due to your weapon's superior fire rate you become a target for enemy troops, but you can also scare them away, or at least hold them off for long enough to assist friendly soldiers to capture the objective a second earlier.
- If you see tanks, RUN. You stand out due to your weapon's sound and muzzle flash, so you become an easy target for them.
- Ammunition is expensive, so try to conserve it or you will spend more than you make.
