Trench Raid Machine Gun

Back in the early days of the First World War, machine guns were heavy, cumbersome things – some requiring a crew of as many as eight men to load, operate, and carry the gun along with its replacement parts. As the war progressed, lighter and more maneuverable automatic rifles were developed, which led to the adoption of “marching fire” – a tactic where advancing infantry units fire from the hip while moving in an effort to pin down enemy troops.

This weapon, while not a direct recreation of any particular firearm of the era, is intended to be the kind of gun that would fill that role. It incorporates elements from the Lewis Gun, the Reibel Machine Gun, and the Vickers Gun. Purely by accident, it also strongly resembles the so-called “Assault Rifle” from Fallout 4.

Parts Used

I started with the base game Light Machine Gun mesh and removed everything but the receiver, chopping it down into a rectangle. I then added the barrel from the Gatling Laser, the pistol grip from the Anti-Materiel Rifle, the butt pad and Microfusion Cell receptacle from the Gauss Rifle, the front sight from the legacy-content Assault Rifle, and the rear sight and carry handle from the Automatic Rifle.
