A light machine gun is a type of weapon that are more powerful and accurate than Submachine Guns and even Assault Rifles. They have a long range and the fastest rate of fire of most automatic weapons.
Although an LMG is meant to be carried by one individual, those are very heavy, restricting the player's movement compared to other weapons.
In the Grand Theft Auto series, light machine guns generally covers large automatic weapons with low mobility and high recoil, but good fire rate and ammo capacity. Some of the weapons are based on General-purpose machine gun, which can be adapted into both light machine gun and medium machine gun roles.
