The Mk 48 is a rare Light Machine Gun found in military loot piles. It is a coveted weapon, even though it isn't statistically the best.


The MK48 Light Machine Gun originated in Belgium and the United States. It has an effective firing range of 800 yards with a maximum of 3,940. It uses 7.62×51mm NATO rounds. 


The Mk 48 has a dark green rectangular box magazine. It is very large and wide. It is the widest gun currently in the game. It has a completely black body with a hooded front sight.


The Mk48, along with the M249, are, since the last weapon balance, great medium range weapons. Having their accuracy improved, and taking into consideration their fast rate of fires and big calibers, the properly usage of a light machine gun will improve their performance. However, the LMGs were also made really bad for spraying, having their hipfire accuracy drastically reduced.


  • It is a popular belief that the Mk 48, being an LMG, has really good hipfire accuracy. However, it has the lowest hipfire accuracy on the game.
  • Insanely rarely, Mk 48 spawn on Civilan Small building
