The Machine Gun is a weapon featured in the 2D Universe games.


2D Universe

The general depictions of the machine gun had several changes in terms of their physical appearance, but generally retains the traits on all games.

In Grand Theft Auto 1, the machine gun seems to be based on the Spectre M4, with some styling cues from a Heckler & Koch MP5, resulting in some sort of assault rifle. For both Grand Theft Auto: London games, the machine gun is modeled after a Sten Mk II, which has its magazine on the left side of the gun.

In Grand Theft Auto 2, the trigger group appears to be taken from the Pistol, but the rest are additions that resembles an Intratec TEC-9 without the barrel shroud and a shorter barrel. It is advertised twice, on Funami FM and Lithium FM.

In addition, machine guns can be mounted on cars, and the Armed Land Roamer comes with its own form of mounted machine gun, featuring an icon that loosely resembles an Ultimax 100.


2D Universe

The machine gun in Grand Theft Auto 1 is capable of firing larger numbers of bullets within a period of time than a pistol. Because of this trait, the machine gun is far more effective in flooding an area with bullets, increasing the chances for the player to hit targets quicker. However, as the weapon fires a large number of bullets at a time, its ammunition may deplete faster than the player would expect for a pistol.

In Grand Theft Auto 2, the machine gun's damage per bullet was decreased to only half that of the pistol.
