The M249 in Insurgency is a light machine gun used by the Security support class, it loads from 200-round belt magazines and provides superior suppression capabilities to the Insurgent's RPK. However, it is hampered by its lengthy reloads, heavy weight, and high recoil whilst undeployed.

Attachments Edit

Optics

CO-OP Only:

Barrel
Siderail
Underbarrel Bipod (static)
Ammunition
  • The Bipod is mounted to the M249 by default and cannot be taken off.
  • The M249 cannot attach a suppressor in PvP games, but can in some custom theaters in Cooperative game modes.

Tips Edit

  • Due to the heavy weight of the M249, as well as the aiming speed, it is not recommended for users of this weapon to take point.
  • The M249's primary function should be heavy suppression, that being said friendlies should be aware of the support's position at ALL TIMES.
  • Due to the strong recoil the weapon produces, when firing full auto make sure you aim downwards to maximize accuracy.
  • AP ammo is not necessarily a must for the M249, as its sheer firing speed will ensure a kill even for an average player (assuming your aim is not bad)
  • When attacking with the M249, attaching a red dot sight will help you with your aiming, this will give you a better chance at fighting offensively and if or when you get caught off guard. Attaching the 2x red dot sight will hamper your ability to fight in close quarters combat, however this set up is particularly useful for long-range suppression or if you are in position for it, spawn camping.
