modules
  • Overheat Overdrive
  • Heavy Movement
  • Defender
  • A powerful, slow-firing MG that has piercing ammunition and steady heat generation.

    Characteristics[edit | edit source]

    Advantages:

    • High magazine capacity and slow, steady heat generation
    • Significantly increased fire rate while overheated, unlike most weapons
    • Kurz ammo pierces through multiple enemies and can ricochet
    • Defender perk grants Damage Absorb for 2 seconds on kills - first kill grants +15, while subsequent kills grant +1 (max +16 Damage Absorb); duration can stack

    Disadvantages:

    • Extremely low base fire rate
    • Reduces movement speed whilst held
    • Heat dissipates very slowly
    • Performs poorly on the move

    Notes[edit | edit source]

    • The MAG47 is best fired in relatively short bursts, as its recoil builds rapidly and recovers slowly
    • Only 8.8mm Kurz and AP ammo can pierce enemies; other ammo types require installing the Hyper Accelerator attachment to gain piercing

    Tips[edit | edit source]

    Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • This weapon is based on the FN MAG
    • The MAG47 originally had Steady Heat as one of its main perks prior to Update 19
