This may have been a Ma Deuce once but it's been rechambered for 5.56 and doesn't have many original parts left.
The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 36 unit radius.
The basic, entry-level heavy weapon. Generally poor and should be rapidly replaced. Along with the Greaser, this is the least effective starting weapon in terms of damage per shot and ammo consumption - in fact, it does even LESS damage per bullet than the starting SMG, is prone to jamming and missing half the burst with your Rangers' weapon skills still undeveloped. You might want to save your 5.56 ammunition for your riflemen instead.
