For the 2D Universe weapon with a similar name, see Machine Gun.

General purpose machine gun that combines rugged design with dependable performance. Long range penetrative power. Very effective against large groups.
Ammu-Nation and Social Club description.

The Shrewsbury MG (Machine Gun) is a light machine gun that appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design[]

Grand Theft Auto V and Online[]

The overall weapon design is based upon the PKM, but with a belt drum from the RPD, and a shorter gas tube similar to the one found on AK-based weapons. The model lacks the bipod and carry handle commonly found on the PKM. The MG does however feature a four-sided handguard with Picatinny rails on each side, as well as a top picatinny rail on the upper receiver.

The gun comes with 54 rounds by default (a rather odd capacity, as the drum magazine appears to resemble 100-round magazines).

Performance[]

Grand Theft Auto V and Online[]

With a base damage of 40, the MG is a rather strong, versatile and powerful weapon that exceeds most firearms during early stages of the game, combined with its capacity of 54 rounds (with the option to increase to 100 rounds) and its fire rate of about 440 rounds per minute. However, against its main competitor, the Combat MG, the weapon falls behind in damage (which has a base damage of 45) and capacity (default magazine has 100 rounds, while the extended magazine has 200 rounds). Its fire rate is also lower than most fully-automatic weapons, slightly below the Carbine Rifle.

Although the scope attachment gives a slightly greater zoom, its lower accuracy and high recoil makes the gun limited for medium-range engagements, requiring short bursts to take out enemies at longer ranges. This is also attributed to the lack of a grip option, despite the ample rails on the handguard.

Like the Assault Rifle, it is chambered in a 7.62mm caliber.

Weapon pickups map including one MG location in Grand Theft Auto V.

Grand Theft Auto Online[]

  • Unlocked at Rank 50 in Ammu-Nation stores, for $13,500.
  • A MG can be stolen and kept for free from the soldiers in Fort Zancudo during the Base Invaders mission.
  • Can be found in crate drops as well as boxes in Gang Attacks.
    • Enemies will sometimes use the MG in Gang Attacks depending on the location of the Gang Attack.
  • Available in the Kosatka's engine room as a part of The Cayo Perico Heist update.

Trivia[]

Grand Theft Auto V[]

  • If attaching a scope to the weapon, then it will be fired from the shoulder like an assault rifle rather than being fired from the hip like normal. This also applies to other hip-fired weapons like the Micro SMG and Combat MG.
  • When reloading, the process can be done almost instantly. If a player presses B (Xbox 360) or Circle (PS3) to reload and wait a second, then do a combat roll (Hold LT and Press X for Xbox 360 and L2 and Square for PS3) they may notice the ammo counter has reset to 54 (or 100 if the extended magazine is attached).
  • The buyable scope in the MG will have a green dot rather than a red dot. This also applies to the Advanced Rifle.

Grand Theft Auto Online[]

  • A mounted version can be seen as the stock weapon of the Dune FAV, in the Gunrunning update.
